Hardwoods and softwoods are both used as art mediums. Carpentry, woodworking, woodcuts, parquetry, wood engraving, and woodturning all use wood as their primary material. Wood is used to make furniture, decorative products (such as frames, jewel boxes, ornaments, and so on), sculptures, and other items. Wood has also been used as a major medium in both fine and folk art. Wood was used by many of the great artists of the past to create their masterpieces. As a result, many art restoration artisans have acquired instruction in wood and period restoration techniques. To effectively deal with a certain type of wood, woodworkers and designers rely on their experience. Wood arts may be used for its aesthetic value as well as its strength, durability, texture, and color.
