Woodworking with Endurance Lasers

Woodworking and wood carving appeared thousands years ago. As soon as humanity appeared ancient people started to make items out of wood and stone (we do not know for sure what came first). In the middle ages woodworking became basis of the economy, people build ships, houses, carts, etc and it all required wood.
