NewZNew (Mumbai) : Forestry Innovation Consulting India Pvt. Ltd. (FII India) organized a Woodworking professionals Meet in Mumbai which showcased the versatility of Canadian Wood species – Western Hemlock, Yellow-Cedar, Douglas-fir, SPF and Western Red Cedar. The event saw a gathering of 130 attendees which included contractors, carpenters and other woodworking professionals. The seminar conducted by Canadian Wood experts educated the audience on lumber sizes, grades, individual species’ features and availability in India.
The event proved to be an excellent platform for knowledge sharing, networking and allowed people to experience first-hand the qualities of Canadian Wood. An interactive session covered several topics such as use of wood in furniture, panelling, door and door frames, outdoor applications of decking, gazebos etc.
Peter Bradfield, Technical Advisor, FII India said, “Wood holds a special place in the heart of Indians. To meet the country’s ever growing demand for wood, Canadian Wood is now available in India. We offer certified wood (PEFC/FSC) from sustainability managed forests which is now being used by several solid wood manufacturers, architects and interior designers for the projects or product lines. A workshop of this nature helps create awareness and acceptance with not only the specifiers but also the woodworking industry at the grass root level.”
Recounting his experience Mr. Bharat Vishwakarma, Owner of M.S. Facades said, “The workshop was indeed very useful. The discussions were engaging, information was nicely distilled which helped understand the subject better. Highly recommended for wood working professionals.”
