Wood, in particular, lends itself to reuse – oftentimes becoming more beautiful and full of character with each new use.

This month’s presentation will deal primarily with the reclaiming of wood for building projects, but we will also touch on the reuse of other natural resources. Be inspired by our panel of creative building pros as they present wonderful ways to give another life to beautiful natural materials that are commonly discarded.

DBL is a volunteer-run educational organization providing valuable information, and optional donations at the door are always appreciated.  No RSVP required. For more details, email us via “Contact Us” or call Scott Clay at 512-689-1149.
