A piece of salvaged sugar maple that we’ve recently acquired from Stadshout. It used to be a denizen of the Buitenveldert area in Amsterdam.
Every now and then the Amsterdam municipality fells trees as part of area renovation projects or because of diseases. Stadshout is a grassroots foundation that aims to save wood from such felled Amsterdam trees from the shredder. Instead, it uses the wood for community projects or offers it for sale to local woodworkers.
