FEB Update: ICON MODERN HOSTS ARCHITECTURAL WOODWORERS

Thank you Rocky Levy and Aaron Tvrdy, co-owners of Icon Modern, for organizing a workshop focused on urban wood use for architects, designers and architectural woodworkers. It was great to see more than two dozen in attendance at this special event. Rocky and Aaron have done a tremendous job of pioneering urban wood use in corporate projects and are currently working on furnishings for the new McDonald’s headquarters.

Read and see photos from the workshop in this month’s edition of the Illinois Urban Wood Update.

Also in this edition of the Update:
> Tom The Sawyer demonstrates milling an urban honey locust log.> Michigan, one of our Urban Wood Network partners, launches a new website. Congrats!

> Dovetail Partners takes the lead on creating certification standards for urban wood.

 Until next month, I remain,
Rich Christianson
