Wood shed

Wood shed

A wood shed is what is being used most among the sheds because it is the safest way to achieve a construction in the garden area or the terrace to store everything that we do not get space at home.

Types of  wood shed Softwood shed:

They are those of fast-growing trees, usually conifers, trees with needle-shaped leaves. They are easy to work with and usually very clear colors.

Hardwood shed: These are those of slow-growing and deciduous trees. They are usually oily and are used in furniture, in resistant constructions, in parquet floors, for some tools, etc.

Resinous Wood Shed: They are especially resistant to moisture. Prefabricated wood shed: Most of them are made with wood remnants, like chips from the rest of the cut. Of this type are the agglomerate, the plywood, the fiberboard and the táblex.

Bonuses of the  wood shed

Is thermal and electrical insulation. It is a good conductor of sound (acoustic). It is a renewable, biodegradable and recyclable material. It is ductile, malleable and tenacious. The color is due to salts, dyes and resins. The darker ones are more resistant and durable.

The texture depends on the size of the pores. It conditions the treatment that wood should receive. The veins are due to the orientation and color of the fibers. The density depends on the weight and the resistance. Density, The more the wood has, the more resistant it is. Almost all woods have a lower density than water, which allows them to float.

Feature of the wood shed

  • Flexibility, is the facility to be curved in the direction of its length, without breaking or deforming. Especially young and soft woods have it.
  • The crack, consists of the facility that contains the wood in splitting or cracking in the direction of the fiber. The resistance will be less if it is long fiber and has no knots, as well as if the wood is green.
  • Hardness or resistance to cutting, which will depend on the greater or lesser cohesion between its fibers. It is in direct relationship between the largest amount of fibers and the least amount of water. For example, a zone of knots will have greater cohesion of its fibers than a clean area, so it will be harder and resistant to cutting.

Wood is a natural, flexible and resistant material with which its trunks generate the different types of known trees, growing year after year through a system of concentric and circular layers. Therefore, it is so used to make wood shed.
