5 Design and Nightingale Academy Examples Scots Pine Red Ceader Larch

6 Design and Nightingale Academy Hardwoods – Natural Wood Natural material Comes from deciduous trees Tends to be more expensive than hardwoods Tends to be harder wearing than softwoods

8 Design and Nightingale Academy Manufactured Boards – Man made wood Comes in large boards Manufactured by gluing wood or wood fibres together Produces constant strength and texture Easy to work with ‘Veneers’ can be used to add a more aesthetic finish

9 Design and Nightingale Academy Example Blockboard Hardboard MDF Plywood

10 Design and Nightingale Academy Task 1 Complete question 1 on your worksheet in your class book in as much detail as possible 5 Minutes

11 Design and Nightingale Academy Sustainability Timber is often referred to as a sustainable material. But why????????

12 Design and Nightingale Academy Sustainability This is when the environment is thought about when designing a product. Transportation costs Material usage Sourcing of material

13 Design and Nightingale Academy Timber and the Environment Trees can be replanted to replace those cut down for their timber Wood can easily be recycled/reused Manufactured boards can be used to limit the number of trees which are cut down

14 Design and Nightingale Academy Timber and the Environment Forest Stewardship Council Promote responsible management of the worlds forests
