Nailed it!

Last week, middle school students from Rio Gallinas School of Ecology and the Arts learned about byproduct entrepreneurship at Old Wood. The group was treated to a dynamic, interactive Mfg Day tour that introduced them to the creation of products such as fire-reclaimed wood flooring and Torchies. Led by Allen Penn, the Firewood Division Manager, and facilitated by owner David Old, the tour included a Q&A segment where students were given certain specs and asked to calculate the capacity of the heat-treating kiln. What are Torchies, you ask? What we can tell you is that they were a hit with the students! Read about them here. To see more Old Wood products, including end-grain flooring and paneling, which elevate the lowest grade timber from forest debris to architectural eye candy.
