What Wood Is That?

Friday 22 February, 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Suitability: 18+


Can you recognise common timbers in your home? Timber trades need to know their woods, as do structural engineers, antique dealers and conservationists. See wood from a carpenter’s perspective and learn about the 3-dimensional anatomy of wood as a scientist, using hand lenses and microscopes. Learn how the traditional uses of timbers are related to the microscopic anatomy of the wood.
