Why the "Houtbank"?


Na anderhalf jaar hard werken hebben we een werkplaats opgezet, leuke workshops gegeven en mooie producten gemaakt. Dit alles met eigen geld en vrijwilligers. Om een sprong te maken, op grotere schaal te produceren en onze mensen te kunnen betalen hebben we uw steun nodig! Doneer en draag bij aan een toekomst voor meer circulair hout gebruik!

What we already do?


Process and inspire

 Courses in which people can make something themselves with used wood.

We start this to inspire and create awareness.

 Processing wood into furniture or building kits that are sold. 

You are more proud of what you make yourself.

Learning together is even more fun! 

Collect and process

 Collecting residual wood from construction and demolition companies in the region.

(but also other possible suppliers)

 These can be beams, planks and slabs, but also old doors or furniture

that may be taken apart. 

Collect the wood in a store after minimal processing. 


  Directly to private individuals via a physical or online store.

What do we have achieved? 

  • Set up a team 5 people who have an active role at the wood bank.

  • There is active monthly contact with the municipality about our role in a new circular environmental street. A partnership has now been set up with several organizations. 

  • We have a location where we give workshops, do production assignments   and sell material by appointment. There is a desire to have a store location. 

  • Four workshops have been given in 2022 and 3 in 2023. The next group workshop is already in the making. 

  • A production order has been successfully completed. 25 photo frames made of used wood.
