The Best of Wood: Case Studies

Our case studies bank looks at some of the best projects made with wood. It showcases some of the most innovative and exciting opportunities that can be realised through the use of wood in your building projects.

Many of the case studies in the section have come from the BWF's Woodworking Project of the Year Award, recognising the best joinery projects, workmanship, and product innnovation from accross the industry.

Please feel free to contact any of our case study companies if you're thinking about wood on a project you're working. To find a member of the BWF to supply your project, use the search facility on the left-hand side of this page - you can filter by product, service, accreditation and location.

If you're an architect or specifier and need some advice on wood and joinery specification, the BWF runs a Technical Specification helpline: 0844 209 2614/5
