Answer . Wood stain is abosorbed into the wood, so the wood takes on the color of the stain. This is why the features of the wood are still visible, unlike with paint.
Wood is the stem of trees inside the bark or outer layer. . Wood is 50% cellulose. Cellulose is the fibrous material that gives strength to the cell walls. These cell walls are bound together with hemicellulose and lignin. Dry wood is about 25% lignin and 20% hemicellulose.. There are many differ…ent types of wood. Each type of wood comes from a species of tree, and has a slightly different cell arrangement and proportions of cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin. This combination gives the types of wood their characteristic strength, texture and colour. (MORE)
Soft wood is wood that is soft and is a light type of wood although some people think it is drift wood but it is not. Softwood is the wood from conifers. The wood is soft

Answer . Depending on what the wood is and how it has been processed, there may be a semi finished surface on it. Sanding lightly will open the pores and allow the stain to absorb more evenly. Will also remove any oil from your hands that may be on the surface..
Answer . Wood fill can usually be removed by carefully digging it out or use a nail tap.

If you mean Metasequoia it is a deciduous conifer. It is commonly called the Dawn Redwood. It was only rediscovered in China in 1941.
'TANALISED' timber has been impregnated with a preservative solution under high vacuum pressure in an industrial vessel. This treatment process ensures deep penetration into the timber cells, for a longer-lasting protective result against fungal decay and insect attack than the application of a surf…ace coating. Pressure-treated timber is leach resistant, ensuring a long and trouble-free service life in a wide range of conditions, and assured performance in sensitive environments such as vegetable plots and areas of wildlife. Desired service lives range from 60 years for internal timbers and 30 years for external timbers such as fence posts in ground contact. The treated timber initially assumes a green colouration, which fades to a honey brown over time and eventually a silver grey. No surface applied product is needed to maintain the integrity of the treatment.. Timber treatments are specified in line with BS8417, in order to ensure that an appropriate level is given according to the end use of the timber. The Use Class system is an indicator as to how the timber should be treated in order to match its end use.. In the UK, 'TANALITH E' is the latest generative preservative, utilising a copper azole formulation which incorporates biocides that are also used to protect food crops.. 'TANALISED', and 'TANALITH' (the preservative) are both internationally registered trade marks of the preservative manufacturer, Arch Timber Protection. These brands have been established since the 1940s, and are a key signature of treatment quality.. An alternative to high-pressure treatments is VACSOL, which is a product applied under low pressure to create an envelope seal of protection. VACSOL Aqua is a water-based formulation, commonly used in the UK and across parts of Europe, and can impart a 60 year desired service life against fungal decay and insect attack for constructional timbers..

I really can't think of any disadvantages. Wood is lovely material to work with, and with proper care and treatment can be used for many different things,
Some people think of Granville T. Woods as the "Black Edison"-- like Thomas Edison, he was an inventor who was years ahead of his time. He was born and raised in Ohio, and despite having only a limited education, he apprenticed himself to men who helped him develop his considerable engineering skil…ls. In his life, he got more than 60 patents, including a signaling system that helped make railroad communication more effective and prevented accidents. I enclose a link to a good biography of his life. (MORE)
I believe Jinx Wood is the same thing as - or very similar to - Balsawood. It is a very light weight, airy wood that is used by crafters and model builders. It is easy to cut and takes glue very well.
Chuck, in middle-english, means to throw. Now if a wood chuck happens to 'chuck' anything it won't be very big or go very far because the wood chuck is just a little furry creature with short paws ill-adpat to throwing anything.
Beech wood fires are bright and clear, If the logs are kept a year. Chestnut's only good, they say, If for long it's laid away. Birch and pine logs burn too fast, Blaze up bright and do not last. Elm wood burns like a church yard mold, Ev'n the very flames are cold. Poplar gives a bi…tter smoke, Fills your eyes and makes you choke. Apple wood will scent your room, With incense like perfume. Oak and maple, if dry and old, Keep away the winter cold. But ash wood wet and ash wood dry, A king shall warm his slippers by. Anonymous . (MORE)
Answer: You can as long as the ash you dump has been drenched in water so you are sure the flame is completely put out. This makes sure they don't catch on fire. Answer: Wood ash releases alkali when it gets wet which can impair water quality and damage plant life. If the ash is to be disposed… of in the woods it is best to spread it out over as wide an area as practicable. (MORE)
soft woods are woods like pine, hard woods are woods like oak and manufactured woods is man made like mdf hope this helps a little XD
No, they are not. Because biofuels are usually made out of vegtables as they are biodegradable.
Examples of hard woods are: White Ash Green Ash Cypress Gum Hickory Locust Lignum Vitae Hard Maple White Maple White Oak Live Oak Red Pine Yellow Pine Oregon Pine Black Walnut One of the hardest woods known is Lignum Vitae but other hard woods are cherry, red walnut, mes…quite and oak. (MORE)
No. Pine is not a hardwood. It should not be burned in a fireplace or wood stove because the flammable resins in the wood will build up in the chimney and could ignite causing a chimney fire.
that's when its best to stain it, because it makes the stain soak in more and makes it last longer The type of stain you are using will determine what the moisture content of the wood needs to be. Some wood deck stains such as Ready Seal require the wood to be very dry.
No. Woodchucks primarily eat wild grasses and other vegetation, and berries. They also eat grubs, grasshoppers, insects, snails and other small animals. The name woodchuck is unrelated to wood or chucking. It stems from an Algonquian name for the animal, wuchak .
Tulip wood (Poplar or Tulip Poplar) is the wood used in many wooden match sticks. When dry, it will burn very quickly. So quickly that you will stay warm running back and forth with wood. It is not harmful to burn- just poor firewood. A bit mixed in with hardwood is OK, but it will last about as lon…g as tissue paper. I would not buy it, but might burn small amounts to dispose of branches from the yard, etc. (MORE)
hard wood is grown in cold wet places, and soft woods are grown in warm driy places The above is TOTALLY incorrect. The place grown has nothing to do with it. Softwoods are trees that drop their seeds in cones (coniferous trees). Hardwood seeds all grow within a protective shell or fruit.
Cedar Wood is a type of Softwood. Sofwoods are known for its strength, flexibility and versatility.

It can be. It is a participle of the verb to wood (to cover with trees), which has virtually no modern use. The related adjective wooden is used to mean made of wood.
Wood has a huge range of price. Construction lumber is about halfway in cost between cheap 'utility' lumber and the really expensive hardwoods for making furniture.
Is the amount of wood measured in cubic meters (m3) of cubic feet (cu.ft) of the main log of a standing tree. Used to define how much wood for industrial use exists in a given forest (natural or planted).
Depends on the type of wood and if it is green or dry and aged. 100 year old Oak is hard to drive a nail into.

Yes, At least in the Midwestern U.S. it has been known to make chainsaw blades actually spark.
Softwoods are coniferous/evergreen trees such as pine, spruce, etc. Deciduous trees are then known as hardwoods If the tree is evergreen.
First off, it is not a "chuck of wood." Second, a woodchuck can't chuck wood; it's scientifictly impossible to get the right answer. The original tongue twister goes: "How much wood would a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood?"
Dry, seasoned wood is best. The type of tree is not as important as moisture content. Wood must be allowed to dry for a minimum of 12 months, under cover, after being split and stacked. Popular firewood in the Northwest are: maple, alder, Douglas fir, spruce, apple and cherry, and oak.
Epil is Ipil. They pronounce it in the Philippines like epil, but the writing is ipil.

Hardwood (oak, maple, cherry) that has been dried for at least a year is about the only kinds one should burn. Even with seasoned firewood, your chimney should be cleaned at the end of the season and the beginning. This also will inspect it to make sure it is okay. Always have a fire department chec…k before using the wood stove or fire place! Any questions you may have they can answer. Ken (former firefighter) (MORE)
As a reference to a stand of trees, "wood" and "woods" are used interchangeably by some. Some writers use "the" in front of wood as a noun, as in, "Lore states he entered the wood 100 years ago." However, "woods" is the appropriate word for a "stand of timber, trees, and grasses (weeds) or other p…lant life". Example: Sally enjoyed hiking in the woods near her home. Wood (no 's') can also be used to describe both one piece of lumber OR more than one piece of lumber. Often, writers include "piece of.." before the word wood to designate one item, or "stack of..." or "pile of..." to designate many. John moved the wood and carried it to the barn. (Here, it is unclear whether he moved one piece or many pieces.) John moved the piece of wood and carried it to the barn. John moved the pile of wood and carried it to the barn. IMPROPER-- because most people would think "stand of trees" or forest" so using "woods" here would sound silly. John carried woods to the barn. John carried the woods to the barn. HOWEVER--- I can carry a piece of the woods back with me and take it to the barn. But, the reader would not know WHAT piece-- did I pick up a rotted limb; a flower; a fern; a rock... all of which could be "a piece of the woods" that I visited. Some writers might use that sentence to describe carrying a feeling or sensation that "woods" might create--for me, in me. I am carrying back something I felt, not a tangible "piece of the woods".

the woodchuck is a burrowing animal indigenous to the Northeastern U.S. As such, their diet does not consist of wood of any type. They primarily eat grass, worms, grubs and occasionally carrion.
Wood is composed mostly of cellulose and lignin, in the form of fibers, and it comes from plants (trees or possibly shrubbery). Those are the defining characteristics of wood.
