Removal of 'woodworkers' section[edit]

I have removed the 'woodworkers' section. There is no indication that the woodworkers listed are more important or influential than the 90+ woodworkers in the category furniture makers, or the 100+ names in the luthiers category. I do not see how this template could accurately list the most influential names from such a large pool. There are probably other categories with similar overlap.

I totally agree. T'was I who added the group when I started the navbox, but just the other day, I looked at it and thought of zapping that group. Good call. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 14:54, 22 May 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Adding Timber framing?[edit]

Timber framing is a type of carpentry which has it's own article. Should it be added to this template? For that matter, Log cabin and Log house could be added or a new article which covers all kinds of log building techniques could be started and then added (there are many, ancient techniques and uses worldwide).--Jim Derby (talk) 18:51, 6 January 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes, or even have its own dedicated template. Go for it, Jim Derby! HLHJ (talk) 18:30, 9 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Linden/Lime/Basswood is a hardwood[edit]

The entry for Linden/Lime/Basswood is under the softwoods. However they are deciduous dicotyledonous angiosperms and therefore hardwoods. MFdeS (talk) 03:10, 17 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Fair enough, I've always seen it as softwood due to it's characteristics, but I guess in scientiffic terms it's classed as a hardwood. Moved it to Hardwoods Raymond Holmoey (talk) 20:06, 1 November 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

right now you made me unsure. Is balsa a hardwood as well? it's soft and light, but i guess it's fairly stiff just c'n'p it into hardwood if it is so.. Raymond Holmoey (talk) 21:49, 1 November 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Marquetry, parquetry, intarsia, purfling, binding (woodworking), edge banding, etc. seem like they need a category. HLHJ (talk) 18:30, 9 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
