The Department of Sustainable Biomaterials at Virginia Tech (VT) will be conducting an Educational Session for architects, engineers, contractors, wood manufacturers and ‘hobby’ woodworkers, May 20, 2021, at Expo Richmond.
The one-day short course, “Understanding Wood as a raw Material,” will “introduce” wood as a raw material for manufacturing, and will address questions like: Is this the right wood for my application? Why is moisture content so important? How do I differentiate between species?
Participants will have the opportunity to engage in hands-on application of the tools and methods discussed. And all materials (plus coffee break refreshments) are included in the registration fee.
The May 20th session runs from 8AM – 5PM. And all of the course details are available at www.sbio.vt.edu. Deadline to register is May 10.
