Oregon State University Lincoln County Extension Service is offering a workshop for wood industry personnel, woodworkers, hobbyists or those just interested in learning more about wood behavior. Wood is a multilayered, lignocellulosic, visoelastic, thermoplastic, cellular material of biological origin that is both hygroscopic and anisotropic. If you did not know this and it sounds interesting, then join us for a fun and informative class that will help you understand wood behavior during cutting, shaping and drying. Class will be at the Lincoln County Extension Service Office, 29 SE 2nd Street, Newport on May 3rd from 9:30AM – 12:30PM.
Registration fee is $25 to cover the costs of handouts and refreshments. You must register by THURSDAY, MAY 1st. Class size is limited so register early.
