Stronger Than Steel, Able to Stop a Speeding Bullet—It’s Super Wood!

Some varieties of wood, such as oak and maple, are renowned for their strength. But scientists say a simple and inexpensive new process can transform any type of wood into a material stronger than steel, and even some high-tech titanium alloys. Besides taking a star turn in buildings and vehicles, the substance could even be used to make bullet-resistant armor plates.

Wood is abundant and relatively low-cost—it literally grows on trees. And although it has been used for millennia to build everything from furniture to homes and larger structures, untreated wood is rarely as strong as metals used in construction. Researchers have long tried to enhance its strength, especially by compressing and “densifying” it, says Liangbing Hu, a materials scientist at the University of Maryland, College Park. But densified wood tends to weaken and spring back toward its original size and shape, especially in humid ...

Antediluvian genius may have made a super wood that worked perfectly for boats.

Gen6:"14 Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch."

"The "gopher wood," from which the Ark was made, is unidentified, and some have even speculated that it may have been a synthetic material."
"The Hebrew word is kopher, equivalent to kaphar, frequently translated later as “atonement” (e.g., Lev 17:11). In providing a protective covering against the waters of judgment, it thus becomes a beautiful type of Christ."
It is interesting to compare the three “arks” mentioned in Scripture. The word (Hebrew tebah) means, simply, “box-like container.” Noah’s ark (Gen6:14) was overlaid&inlaid with “pitch,”
Moses’ ark with “slime and pitch,”
&God’s ark of the covenant with “pure gold” (Ex25:10,11).
One was made of “gopher wood,”
the 2nd of “bulrushes,”
3rd of “shittim wood.”
1st preserved the remnants of the primeval dispensation,
2nd preserved the prophet of the new dispensation,
3rd &last preserved the inscribed divine standard of God’s holiness for every generation (Ex31:17,18; Rev11:19)

What's this, the wooden equivalent of GM?

I love things made out of wood. What a great provision of God. A type of our Lord Jesus Christ was made out of wood.

I also love woods. That is, small forests, trees everywhere - more oxygen.
