HOUTBAAR, a combination of the words ‘hout’ and ‘houdbaar’ meaning wood and preservable.

Houtbaar concentrates on organizing woodworking courses. With a few essential, manual woodworking techniques you learn to create your own piece of furniture. The durability of materials and the value of techniques are essential during the process and

contribute to a creation of great value and function.

The pieces created are designed especially for the course, to not only be an exercise in wood but to become a valuable contribution to any interior.

Houtbaar seeks to provide an answer on the revival of crafts. A learning process of great intensity combined with durable materials and the use of specific handicraft tools are the key to experiencing a great deal of the woodworking craft.
