  • Center Presents: Designing with Urban Wood: A Practical Guide to Help Your Client Tell a Story & Save the Planet

    Urban-Lumber-Workshop-graphic-CFAD

    Incorporating “urban” wood into a design project can help set your client apart from the crowd by telling a unique story with ecological significance. At this event, learn more about what urban wood is and where to get it, how it can tell a powerful story for your client, and how to successfully spec it into your next indoor or outdoor design project. Watch firsthand how a tree goes from log to lumber with on-site sawmill demonstrations by the Kansas Forest Service and Missouri Department of Conservation.
