          • The come from deciduous trees (leaf losing)
          • Required to know; Oak, Ash, Mahogany and Beech
          • Hardwoods are more; fibrous, more compact, denser, better mechanical strength than softwood.
        • Soft woods
        • Wood Types
          • Oak
            • Its hard, durable, tough and high density
            • High quality furniture, boat building, garden benches
            • Contains acid which corrodes steal
          • Beech
            • Tough and hard
            • Used for workshop benches, toys and interior furniture
