    Solution to Last Week's Puzzler
    Architecture Puzzler #502

    Question

    What is the difference between oak and oakum?

    Answer

    Oak is a deciduous hardwood tree whose wood is often used in doors, trim, and casework. Oakum is a caulking material made from fiber strands or rope soaked in oil to make it waterproof and rot-resistant.
