9 Parts Of Wood

Humans have used wood for thousands of years, ranging from fuel for cooking, lighting, making furniture, building materials, paper materials, and more. The use of parts of this tree as a whole or solid has been greatly reduced in line with the problem of global warming and the reduction of forest land in the world. Historically, timber plants that appeared in nature were first thought to have occurred in 395 to 400 million years ago. Besides being used to meet various human needs, wood can be used as a historical reference regarding climatic and weather conditions at the time the tree grows which can be seen from variations in the distance between growth rings.

In general, wood consists of 9 parts, namely:

1.        Skin

Leather is one part of wood. This skin is the outermost part that is owned by wood. The skin itself has two parts, the first is the outer skin that is dead, and the second is the inner skin that lives. Outer skin that is dead has a different thickness. This thickness is based on certain tree species, dry, and also old colors on tree bark. The second bark is a living bark. Skin in life has a very thin thickness. The function of this inner bark is to transport the modified latex sap to the part of the tree that is growing. In addition, the skin can protect the inside of wood from damage caused by insects, pests, climate, and fires.

2.      Cambium

The next piece of wood is the cambium. This cambium is a thin and clear network of wood. The shape is a kind of lender that is in the part between the skin and wood. In addition, the cambium function can also surround the wood, externally forming new bark and replacing old skin that is old and damaged, and in line with the formation of new wood.

3.        Chubal

The part that consists of cells that are still alive and still functioning are responsible for distributing food from the leaves to other parts of the tree. This sapwood is located next to the cambium and functions as a liquid distributor and as a place to store nutrients in wood. This accumulation of nutrients will continue to provide the food needed by wood during its growth on the tree. This sapwood has a thickness of about 20 cm

4.      Terrace of wood

This is the part that consists of cells that are old and die so they don’t work anymore. Even so, this part serves as an amplifier for tree growth. The terrace is more durable and has an older color than sapwood

5.      Heart of wood

It is the middle part that comes from the original wood, the wood that was first formed by cambium and is soft and brittle in certain types of wood. But those that are hard on certain types of wood

6.      Fiber

This section has a direction and size that varies depending on the type. Some are straight fibrous, some are bent, chime, choppy, and some are very small, medium or even large. Fiber is a cell composition that looks like a shaft and is long. The relative size of these cells is called texture..

7.      Pores

The size of the hole size varies depending on the type.

8.      The fingers

This is a network formed from the arrangement of radial cells from the outside to the center. This network is also called a radial network. These wooden fingers are perpendicular to the trunk from the skin to the liver which functions as a food channel that is easily processed in the leaves to help the tree grow. The better the radius of the tree, the faster the wood can be used as building material.

9.      Circle of years

The year circle is the boundary between wood formed at the beginning and end of the season. The year circle can determine the age of a tree. If the age of the tree is old, then the function of the wooden part of building materials will also function optimally in strength and ease of use.

 

Utilization of wood for various human needs is now mostly used only as building materials, furniture, and paper-based materials only as a result of reduced forest land and the accompanying global warming problem. For the basic ingredients of the paper industry, the parts used are the ends and branches of trees. In fact, from one tree trunk, only 40-50% of the tree becomes a tree trunk. Saw wood is around 53% or around 21.2% from one tree trunk. After that, from sawn to furniture or furniture around 60%. In other words, only 12.72% of tree trunks are the furniture in our homes. That is why now found many furniture made from processed wood or wood dust waste because the price is cheaper.

Difference Between Old Teak Wood and Young Teak Wood

 

Teak wood, known as class I hardwood and class II durable, has no doubt about its quality. Teak is an ideal wood group due to its strength, durability, and fiber beauty. This wood is very resistant to termite and fungus attack. In addition, teak has good resistance to changes in weather and temperature. All these advantages make this wooden Latin name, Tectona Grandis, expensive. However, it must be understood that all the properties of perfect teak are only owned by old teak wood. Old teak wood is teak derived from teak trees that are more than 80 years old. This high quality teak is obtained from natural growth trees that are developed through seed germination. This type of teak wood has a texture and fiber that is smooth and dense, and small pores.

Large stems also make old teak wood have little connection. In addition, the dark brown color from old teak wood can also display an elegant and sturdy impression that adds to the advantages of this class I wood. Old teak wood has a high level of durability. This is based on the nature of teak trees, the older the tree is, the smaller its water content, the greater its specific gravity and durability. Not surprisingly, old teak is also very well used for furniture making or building construction. In teak there is also an extractive substance called Tectoquinone, an oil-producing substance. This substance is located on a wooden terrace contained in a teak tree trunk. The older the tree, the greater the percentage of wood terraces so that more oil is also produced. This oil makes teak wood resistant to termites and mold. In addition, oil can also make teak look luxurious.

Unfortunately, all the advantages of teak wood have begun to be difficult to find. Teak wood that is now widely circulating in the market is young teak produced from cultivation in the range of 5-7 years. Teak wood of this type is classified as class V. The characteristics of young teak are large fibers and wavy surface texture. Besides that the color tends to be white. Because of his young age, the content of young teak oil is still so small that it is not resistant to termites. Even so, some special treatments to increase the strength and endurance of young teak wood are now beginning to emerge. It’s just that young teak is still not recommended for building construction. More suitable for non-construction furniture or building needs. The treatment commonly used by wood entrepreneurs is wood preservation with soaking and healing techniques. This technique is able to extend the life of wood compared without soaking and baking.

 

For maximum results, young and old teak must be protected by covering the surface of the wood. Finishing options are stains (transparent colors / fibers still visible), paint (fiber cover colors), and varnishes (clear coating). Teak wood with good fiber is very precise in finishing with coloring to expose the beauty of wood fibers. Meanwhile, for young teak wood, it can be colored first and then varnished, so that the color looks more mature. while the old teak wood whose color is ripe is only enough lacquer.
