Duration: 4 hours
Timber is an organic material. It can shrink, swell and change colour in response to environmental conditions, and it can be prone to damage from pests and wood rots. Some timbers are more weather or pest-resistant than others. Timber that is vulnerable to termites, boring insects, and fungal rots should be raised off the ground or treated before going outdoors. In this course, you will learn about the construction of different things in an outdoor situation with wood; including fences, furniture and retaining walls.
