    Wood as a construction and decorative material

    The natural environment has a significant impact on human health and well-being. Pleasant surroundings, taking into account our aesthetic requirements has been of interest to the entire society in recent years. Creating a pleasant atmosphere is one of the forms of caring for people.

    Besides many factors, that shape the environment around us, They are also influenced by the material used for various equipment and the way it is used. This brings us to the basic natural material - wood. This book is about the use of wood, inter alia, for lining walls inside and outside rooms.

    Wood as a raw material is widely used. The constantly rebuilding base - the forest - also plays an extremely important role in the natural environment of man, namely, it maintains the biological balance.

    Wood accompanied man in all stages of his development, it was used for making tools and building houses. And today it is impossible to do without this valuable material, especially there, where from the technical side, functional and aesthetic, it cannot be replaced with anything else. Any type of wood, each piece from the same trunk has a different drawing and shade, and therefore offers endless possibilities of creation.

    Room, where we find wood with a typical natural structure and pattern, it is very aesthetic and has a positive effect on the human mood. You could say, that nature itself entered the living quarters in this form.

    The period of revival of wood as a construction and decorative material has come. Wood wall panels are one of the forms of its application.

    Wood enables the creation of various shapes and construction forms. An amateur way of processing wood does not have to differ from a professional one, as long as an amateur starts to prepare and perform a work with a certain dose of theoretical and practical knowledge. It needs to be highlighted that, that

    from a number of craft professions, the profession related to wood is relatively difficult, because it requires, next to information from materials science, construction and technology, also creative abilities, for which there is no prescription. The author of the publication tried to take into account this requirement, giving tips to facilitate the contractor's decision-making.

    What should be done, so that the amateur product does not differ from the factory one? Are there any rules? Can this be achieved? The author gives a positive answer to these questions. As in any other activity, the principle of accuracy applies, persistence and consistency. Don't get discouraged, even at the cost of discarding the broken item and re-making it. Even the most experienced carpenter will admit, that it happens to him that an element or the whole product breaks down. All the more it can happen to an inexperienced hobbyist. However, if something fails, you should try to prevent this from happening, that the finished work should bear permanent traces of the mistake made.

    One more note. Why a hobby product, as a rule, is worse? The reason is often an incorrect assessment of the time necessary to perform a specific job. For an amateur, working time should not be a decisive factor. If he is able to perform the planned work quickly and well, so much the better. As a rule, the opposite is true, the required quality is achieved with an extended working time. It is also interesting, that the estimation of the time required by an amateur to perform a certain operation is usually insufficient - shorter than that of an experienced craftsman. Then the imperfect workmanship of the product becomes obvious.

    So if the goal is to obtain a product that is not inferior to the factory, suitable material must be available, tools, instruments and the necessary time.
