Green woodworking

Green woodworking is carpentry that works unseasoned or "green" timber into finished items. Unseasoned wood is much softer than seasoned timber and is therefore much easier to shape with hand tools. As moisture leaves the unseasoned wood shrinkage occurs and the green woodworker can use this to ensure tight joints in their work. Bodging is a traditional green woodworking occupation, where chair components were made in the woods and exported to workshops where the complete chairs were assembled. Green woodworking has seen a recent revival due to its increased media coverage.[1]
