I suggested a new tag called woodworking-history. Is this an appropriate topic for this site?
This would not cover any questions related to the "act" of woodworking (such as the typical "How can I..." questions) for people who are seeking advice on what they should do. This would be more of an educational topic that could be used to help someone better understand a technique or tool for their benefit (in my opinion). I could also see this being used as a purely informative topic for the sake of curiosity.
My question as a reference for this Meta... When did people start using plywood rather than real hardwood?
