Woodland to Workshop Project

Last year was a very busy year for the project.  In February, we went to Oak Park in Co Carlow to learn about the Marteloscope system for timber quality and value measurement.

Later on in the year, we visited the Atlantic University in Letterfrack, Co Galway to see practical applications for all types of Irish grown timber.

James Thomson, a Scottish Tutor from Thomson Timber Building gave a timber post and beam construction module, which was held in Navan, Co Meath.

We visited the Lawderdale Furniture Company in Ballinamore, Co Leitrim meeting with Eltjo & Marion Van Der Laan, where they manufacture furniture using locally sourced timber, milling and drying on site.



We attended the Techno Teachers’ Conference in Athlone, Co Meath, and had over 35 schools showing an interest to participate in any future purchases of forest owner group timber.

Our conclusion event was held in The Headfort Hotel, Kells with a video of the project
