Cub Scouts: Wood Eye Wood Eye – but what kind of Wood?

For Cub Scouts Kathy needed to get several kinds of wood that might be used to build a house. OK! So All through the garage we go grabbing old scraps of wood of one kind or another. But what kind of wood is it??? What is pine used for? Why are fences made of cedar? Why use redwood? I don’t want to know much.

Let’s just look on the internet – but 30 minutes later, still noting but a bunch of ads for hardwood flooring (I hate the internet).

But finally bingo. I find Dummies.com and a great article of types of wood. OK, good shot dudes. A double thanks from the cub scouts.

Can I go to lunch now?
