The Bay Area Urban Forest Council is proud to present "From Saw to Table," a workshop that will highlight the best utilization of salvaged urban wood from street trees and other sources in the Bay Area. Wednesday – January 25th, 2012 – 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM. Register with California Urban Forest Council (CAUFC.org   click on Bay Area). Or just come in the afternoon –open to the public after lunch to see what wood can do. Location 548 Cleveland Avenue, Albany, Ca. 94710.

 

We have a vast resource of urban wood available to us. The challenge is coordinating end-users with those who cut and possess the wood at the start. A typical example is a tree service company that removes/trims trees and a variety of people who utilize parts of trees.

 

These end-users include but are not limited to:
·        Woodturners

·        Carpenters

·        Sculptors

·        Natural dye people

·        Wood researchers

·        Origami or flower arrangement

·        Hardwood floor installers

·        Construction companies

·        Pallet makers

·        Sawmills

Of course wood can go to the fireplace or be chipped into great mulch, or be dumped into green waste and ultimately composted. 

The best use of our wood is in the higher end usage where we re-cycle a material which is highly prized. It also frees us from plastics and oil based products that are inferior substitutes for the real thing - wood.

The objective of the conference is to educate people, companies, and public agencies on how best to 'harvest' wood so that the product is usable. We also want to connect various organizations so that desired wood is not wasted.

 

Highlights: The morning will include updates on California Urban Wood Salvage, plus speakers talking about cutting wood, how wood is used, and their own skills in working with wood. There will be displays of unbelievable finished wood pieces, which will be available for purchased by the public in the afternoon.

 

Presenters Include:

·        Elizabeth Lundgren - From E- Arts Studio in Benicia who makes exquisite wood pieces.

·        Eric Folmer – Tree Wolf Tree Service - presenting on Lucas Mill techniques.

·        Paul Disco - The founder and principal of Joinery Structures, who is a renowned Japanese master builder and Zen Buddhist teacher.

 

Cost: $40 - includes local organic healthy lunch imported from Berkeley and CEU's, as well as helping to fund future council programs.
