Another previously common wood for building was the American Chestnut. Beginning in 1904, a chestnut blight spread across the US killing billions of American Chestnuts. Before the wood was destroyed, it was used to build barns and other structures, which preserved the wood for later reuse when these structures were later dismantled.

The type of stain will have different effects, accentuate or obscure, wood grain and neither is superior to the other. Most commercial stains contain both dye and pigment and the degree to which they stain the appropriate wood is mostly dependant on the length of time they are left on the wood. Pigments, regardless of the suspension agent, will not give much color to very dense woods but will deeply color woods with large pores (i.e. oak). Dyes are translucent and pigments are opaque.

Gel stains are more akin to paint and have little penetrating ability.

Gotham Forest Products Lumber :Sawmills became widespread in medieval Europe again, as one was sketched by Villard de Honnecourt in c. 1250.[5] They are claimed to have been introduced to Madeira following its discovery in c. 1420 and spread widely in Europe in the 16th century.[6]

By the 11th century, hydropowered sawmills were in widespread use in the medieval Islamic world, from Islamic Spain and North Africa in the west to Central Asia in the east.

For convenience we refer to lumber by its nominal dimensions, which are larger than the actual dimensions (see above table). Nominal dimensions traditionally referred to rough lumber, but the size is reduced in drying and planing. Early standards called for the rough lumber to be of full nominal dimension when dry, but the requirements have decreased through time. The typical finished 1 inch board in the 1910s was 13/16; this was reduced by 4% in 1929 and by another 4% in 1956, resulting in the current standard of 3/4 inch.

Gotham Forest Products Brian Kane After being applied, the film-forming substances in varnishes either harden directly, as soon as the solvent has fully evaporated, or harden after evaporation of the solvent through certain curing processes, primarily chemical reaction between oils and oxygen from the air (autoxidation) and chemical reactions between components of the varnish. Resin varnishes “dry” by evaporation of the solvent and harden almost immediately upon drying. Acrylic and waterborne varnishes “dry” upon evaporation of the water but experience an extended curing period.
