Woodworking was first introduced thousands of years ago with people carving word for ornaments and gifts. The ancient Egyptians carved tombs, mummies, and statues from wood to be painted in gold.

In the 1920s the wood shapers were introduced and from there, machines like the panel saws, band saws, and sanders soon followed. From there the woodwork machinery industry really took off, the machines and technology became more advanced and the possibilities endless.
