Wood construction requires first of all shaping and cutting wood into shapes and sizes that can be used to make whatever a person desires to make from it. In old times, the cutting, shaping and smoothing of woods were done with very limited and old fashioned tools like axe which apart from requiring a lot of hard work to operate with did not provide the precision that we see in wooden architecture these days. This made building with woods a very cumbersome, time taking and expensive task. However with the technological advancement and availability of machines which can perform the work of a large number of workers alone, with more precision and with more speed, wood has become a very popular building material which is not only cheap but also long lasting. arti mimpi
