60 Wood Designs

From Tree-Made Engines to Wooden Beasts

— June 24, 2009 — Eco
There are so many uses for wood, a substance we often abuse and take for granted because, as the saying goes, “it doesn't grow on trees.” It is important to protect the nature surrounding us so that future generations can enjoy the wonders of Mother Nature as we did.

The gallery above is packed full of wooden innovations, from engines to toys, to motorcycles to laptop cases and beyond, to pay tribute.

Implications - Wood isn't strictly for structural use as many people "wood" think. Customers can now embrace terrific timber products which are entertaining, functional and beautifully designed. "Wood-n't" you like to take a peek?
