We organized an international workshop where a group of scientists and experts from Austria, Belgium, Italy, Germany and Slovenia presented examples of the use of beech wood in different periods and environments in the past. The work consisted of lectures, discussions, practical demonstrations, practical work and excursions in Slovenia. The participants visited a forest stand near Kočevje and historical buildings in the Mirna Valley. The Land of hayracks, Šentrupert and the Handicraft center Ribnica organized practical demonstrations and work to better know the traditional wood processing and use. These practices resulted in optimal use of the advantages of beech and other wood species. Since the historical wood utilization was based on a very good knowledge on wood properties, the examples present a challenge and motivation to develop new products and improve the use of beech wood in the future. This was also the primary purpose of the workshop.
