The world long ago moved away from wood for making most products.
Plastic is cheaper. Steel is stronger. Cardboard is lighter.
But it's hard to beat wood for its jack-of-all-trades abilities. It's still cheap, strong and light enough for plenty of DIY projects. And it's one of the easier materials to work with.
For those reasons, I present to you this list of some of the most interesting projects that most of us didn't realize could be made out of wood. In in this and the following installments, you'll see some of the most clever or interesting YouTube videos I could find of things made mostly from wood.
