Delta Institute released our Toolkit for Using StoryWood on December 12th ahead of the holiday season. We encourage you to use its release as a reminder to appreciate all material gifts – big and small – as every material has a story, and wood is no different. Be it wood sourced from a local gymnasium’s floor, wood from a fallen tree, or wood grown on contaminated land as a remediation tool – it has a story with unique, marketable features. Designers, architects, and developers use the StoryWood Toolkit to identify, evaluate, and share information on various types of wood.
With the toolkit, we intend to continue to empower Midwest designers with vital information that gives them a competitive advantage in the building material reuse, architectural salvage, and antique lumber marketplace.
