Factory Tour: Exotic Hardwoods+Veneers

Thursday, February 7
Time: 3:00-5:00pm
Location: 4800 Coliseum Way , Oakland, CA 94601-5010
Cost: None. This tour is open to all members.

Demand for FSC wood products is on the rise, however, availability can remain a challenge. Join us for a factory tour of the Exotic Hardwoods + Veneers factory to see how pre-engineered wood products can provide a resource efficient alternative.

During the tour we will discuss the benefits and challenges of specifying FSC certified and pre-engineered wood, including: how to incorporate hard-to-find and exotic woods into a green project, preserving your design intent, and cost considerations in wood selection.

You will also see firsthand how veneers and wood panels are adhered together through the use of state-of-the-art equipment to create durable wood composites that provide long-term performance in a wide array of exotic and design-sensitive finishes.

Space limited, RSVP required.
