Comparing Hardwood and Softwood as a Construction Material in Manufacturing Outdoor Furniture This research report will take an in depth look at the use of hardwoods, and softwoods from the production of outdoor furniture. This short target audience is technology studies students, teachers, and will especially investigate safety aspects, construction types and accessibility, adhesive properties, environment issues, and durability. The hardwoods considered in this report include Jarrah, Spotted Gum, and Tasmanian Oak. The softwoods considered are Radiata, Calantis and Hoop Pine. HARDWOOD Hardwood is wood which has a specific kind of interlocking mobile structure. The trees have broad leaves and are made up of thousands of unique species. Usually Australian hardwoods utilized for the manufacture of outdoor furniture include various eucalyptus species but mainly include timbers such as Jarah (South Western Australia), Spotted Gum, and to some lesser degree Tasmanian Oak. All of these timbers are comparatively harmless although the dust if swallowed, can cause abnormal problems. The typical first aid would be to wash water, and if there's abnormal discomfort, seek medical attention. Eye contact with dust may be irritant, and also cause watering and redness. To be safe wear eyeglasses to guard eys. If eye contact occurs, it is advisable to flush thoroughly with water for at least 15 minutes and if irritation persists seek medical care. Inhaling the dust of Tasmanian Oak may cause some reparatory problem. Inhalation of debris of timber may be irritating to nose, throat and lungs. If this happens leave the dusty area, or employ a mask. Hardwood dust can also be a fire/explosion danger, so prevent sparks, so the build up of stati...
