Woodworking can be both an additive and subtractive process where pieces of wood are cut, shaped, joined, and finished to create the desired object.

One benefit to woodworking is having control of the object throughout the entire process. The actual wood being cut, shaped, and joined, is a piece of the final object. Another benefit is the beauty, warmth, and uniqueness of the material itself. Each piece has the signs of being a living material!
