The Business Innovation Partnership is putting on a special presentation and overview of Thermally Modified Wood (TMW) on Wednesday June 29th. Numerous samples will be available for viewing including both BC softwoods and various hardwoods. Come and see how Hemlock and SPF transform in appearance and functionality to that of Western Red Cedar and how local Maple and other lighter hardwoods can be transformed into rich exotic tropical hardwoods. Thermowood has long been used in Europe and this exciting process is starting to gain some traction in North America. Come and find out for yourself!
