Wood is easy to cut. Timber is cut from tree-trunks in a saw-mill and then cut to shapes that can be used to make buildings and furniture. The elaborate design on this section from a wooden fireplace was cut by hand using gouges. It is posible to mas-produce patterns carved into wood using complex machinery.
