    There's an interesting development in making wood stronger. See the overviews at

    https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/stronger-than-steel-able-to-stop-a-speeding-bullet-mdash-it-rsquo-s-super-wood/

    https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-018-01371-0

    and the actual article is at https://www.nature.com/articles/nature25476 but behind a paywall :sad:

    There's the abstract of an apparently fairly similar but different process at https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29373784 but again the article is behind a paywall :cry:

    Perhaps in a few months the articles will be available and perhaps there'll be a better idea of how practical the work is? :devil:

    How interesting, that's the first I've heard of it, thanks Dave.

    For anyone who likes that sort of fascinating stuff, try the New Atlas website. They have the same story and more - you can waste plenty of time on there :bigsmile:
