    Since the trees in that region are stunted, gnarly, twisted Cedars, which are not suitable for building a toy box, this is a very good question. Apparently the writers did not give this much thought when they were concocting this incredibly ridiculous story, and believers have no recourse but to resort to the old "goddidit" explanation.

      What source of reference did you use to identify the type of trees, and the region where they were felled?

    I am not sure it was "wood" as such. Gopher wood could have been a composite material made out of reeds laminated together using tar as a binder. Kind of a early fiber composite like we use now in construction.

    God provided the necessary materials. He always does, when he gives you an assignment.

    The Bible is silent about the source of the wood. But clearly, it was Noah and his two sons that did all the work bubilding the ark. The Bible alludes to it taking them 100 years to build it.

      It would be a good idea if you took a class on historical christianity because your lack of education on the subject is vast.
