The workability of timber is essential for any woodworker or craftsman, as it determines how easily the timber can be cut, moulded, and shaped into the desired form. Good workability is crucial for achieving the desired result, and so it is important to select a timber that is suitable for the job. Here, you can find information on the workability of different hardwoods and softwoods, and recommendations on which timber is best suited for your project.
