If skyscrapers can be built from wood, can other large items be built as well? i.e. automobiles, boats, motorized vehicles of any kind.
There are several questions to be considered in answering this question; will the wood hold up in collisions? Is there enough resources to mass produce these complex vehicles? Would an engine be able to operate with such heat on a wooden frame? Would this idea have the same benefit resourcefully as the skyscraper idea?
