Because in almost every culture everywhere, slurry is poured into forms which are almost always made of wood. Wood is easy to acquire, easy to shape, and really cheap to acquire. It is so common, I don't know of any historical examples where slurry (any fluid mixture of a dissolved or pulverized solid with a liquid) was not poured into forms made of wood (except rare cases where the forms were made of fabric). Today some forms are made of metal, usually steel or aluminum. But historically? Almost always wood, sometimes but rarely fabric. And when fabric, the fabric was supported by wood.
