Using This Wiki
An open wiki is a great way to impart knowledge, and collaborate on research projects in any given field of interest. When a group of people come together and share and discuss ideas about a subject, there is no end to the depth or layers of knowledge that can develop. The process of editing, sharing, and imparting knowledge for others to use and create upon is how subjects are expanded and accuracy is gained. This is called, Wiki.

What is a Wiki?
A wiki (wɪki/ WIK-ee) is a website which allows collaborative modification of its content and structure directly from the web browser. In a typical wiki, text is written using a simplified markup language (known as "wiki markup")The markup language used on a Wiki page is most commonly called Wiki Syntax. It uses common characters in uncommon ways (or character combinations that are not normally used together) and provides them with a special meaning. Some of the character combinations only work at the beginning of a line, while others can be inserted anywhere in the text and are active until they are turned off., and often edited with the help of a rich-text editor. A wiki Web site operates on a principle of collaborative trust. The simplest wiki programs allow users to create and edit content. The most popular wiki is Wikipedia.

The Software
Tikiwiki is a widely used resource for open source projects and education purposes. Come read about how we chose Tiki Wiki as our open sourced research project for everything about woodworking. After extensive research and trials, and mistakes, we finally decided on wiki software that would both benefit our woodworking data base of subjects, and would also be user friendly for editors and collaborators. Read on to see how we decided.

148 Longleaf Pine Bark
Longleaf pine has one of the thickest bark coverings of all the southeastern pines, an adaptation to the frequent fires that once burned the extensive longleaf pine forests. The bark, which develops quickly after the grass stage, insulates the cambium against deadly high temperatures during fires.
