> How many other wooden implements

If wood is commonly found at old sites, then wooden implements should be just as common and as well preserved, for say hand axe handles, if it were being used for such a task. Axe handle wood doesn't rot away any faster than other wood or the fragile plants found at these sites.

About this many:
[www.indiana.edu]
"This assumption is related to the ancient paleogeographic context of Kalambo Falls in a
woodland habitat, as well as the remains of wood at the site."

[www.heraldlive.co.za]
"The wood, estimated to be at least 300 000 years old, is the latest discovery by archaeologists from various universities around the world."

[www.sciencedirect.com]
"Benot Ya'aqov Formation to between 240,000 and 730,000 yr B.P. Archaeological excavation of three areas and two trenches at the new study area have produced abundant basalt, flint, and limestone artifacts, mammalian and avian fossils, and considerable plant material."

The idea that perishable cultural items would not be preserved is false. More plausible (given the fragile plants and pollen that is preserved in them), is one can conclude they were never there to begin with.
