Dam little. Wood is a very general term for the "meat" of a tree, down to toothpicks or chopsticks. Lumber is after it's been sawn into pieces and generally means pieces used for building (as opposed to eating or picking one's teeth). Timber is a term generally used to describe larger pieces of lumber, but may vary and isn't very specific.

For most of you this might be a very basic question, but for someone coming from a country where only masonry and concrete exist, it's confusing.
Structurally speaking, what's the difference between wood, lumber and timber?
