Event Details

Do you like wood? Are you a big nerd for wood? Ever wondered where a piece of lumber comes from, how it was sawn, or what species it is? Well! This is your class. Come learn the basics of soft- and hardwood identification with Rebuilding Exchange's resident wood expert, Alex Enarson. We will work through the methods in Dr. Bruce Hoadley's excellent reference on the subject, "Identifying Wood: Accurate Results with Simple Tools". We will also talk about historical changes in the lumber market, milling technologies, and commodity flows within the Great Lakes region and the city of Chicago, pre- and post-fire. Bring your hand lens, microscope, exacto, and any wood you'd like to try and identify!
