Wood was the most readily accessible material to an 1800s South Carolina farmer. Many items now made from metal were originally made of wood - even locks and keys - because metal was expensive and wood was free. Due to its wide availability and relative softness, pine was used most often in crafting farm furniture and tools. Hardwoods, such as hickory, walnut and mahogany, were more likely to be found in wealthier homes.

Many modern Americans can make simple household repairs, but the need to be self-sufficient was far greater for our ancestors on isolated farms. Basic woodworking was a survival skill for yeoman farmers.
