Wood has long been a traditional material for furniture and architecture. It is used today more for its aesthetic qualities and is currently enjoying renewed status as a highly fashionable and desirable material. Wood features some unusual contemporary applications, such as interior products made of cork and bamboo, and veneered wall coverings, as well as architectural uses such as Norwegian sustainable housing and Japanese wood and paper housing. Musical instruments, wooden handbags, boats and even a bath and bicycle all make an appearance. Numerous processes are covered - including carving, staining, veneering, moulding, and pulping - and all types of wood, from oak to lime, are represented.
