In late September, Karen Koenig, editor of Wood & Wood Products, took part in the Wood Component Manufacturer's Association's Fall Plant Tour, which took visitors to eight different woodworking plants in eastern Wisconsin.

The tour stared on Sept. 21 and took visitors to Oshkosh Door, a door manufacturer; Elipticon Wood Products, a company in Little Chute, WI, that makes curved moldings and casings; Oshkosh Design, a custom flooring company in Winneconne, WI; and Wolf River Lumber, a sawmill in New London, WI.

On Sept. 22, the tour continued with four more plants: Valley Custom Door, a door manufacturer in DePere, WI; DeLeers Millwork, a residential and commercial millwork firm based in Green Bay, WI; J. Pechauer Custom Cues, a company in Green Bay that makes wooden pool cues; and Wisconsin Log Homes, a company that designs and builds log homes in Green Bay.
