About The Event

This presentation is approved for credit and provides 1 CDT credit as well as 1LU AIA HSW

Course description:

     To educate architects, specifiers & designers on the new ANSI/AWI 0641 Architectural Wood Casework. There are now laboratory-tested manufacturing methods and materials to prove the structural performance of the casework being specified. This new standard also allows for proprietary manufacturing methods to be performance tested and specified while giving scientific validation & accountability to the woodworking industry as a whole.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Identify differences between the previous AWS Ed 2 Casework Standard and the new ANSI/AWI Architectural Wood Casework 0641 Standard.
  • Educate on moving from a more aesthetically based standard (AWS Ed 2) to a structural performance standard (0641) that includes the aesthetical qualities as well.
  • Become familiar with the impact of the ANSI & Performance Based Testing processes as they relate specifically to the 0641 Architectural Wood Casework Standard.
  • Learn how the specifier benefits by using the new ANSI/AWI 0641 Architectural Wood Casework Standard, resulting in time & product cost savings, while increasing the validity & accountability of the woodworking industry.


  • Hunter Morrison

AWI Technical Director, Hunter Morrison, joined the staff April 2020. His current AWI responsibilities include overseeing execution of ANSI / AWI Standards development, leading the National Testing Center team and providing technical support for the industry.

Prior to joining the AWI team, he worked for an architectural woodworking manufacturer, Boulder Mills, Inc., in Lafayette, CO. He was the firm’s project engineer, with a broad scope of work and responsibilities.

Hunter’s experience also includes learning another aspect of our industry at High Country Millwork, a high-end retail store fixture company in Longmont, CO. His responsibilities evolved from an initial position as drafting engineer to lead engineer.

Hunter earned his undergraduate degree in Wood Technology at Pittsburg State University (PSU) in Pittsburg, KS.

  • Doug Hague

Doug is a Pittsburg State University graduate with a BST in Wood Technology and a MS in Career and Technical Education. He has participated in all areas of fabrication from Design/Sales to final installation. Doug’s primary industry roles were office related: Estimating, Project Management, Drafting/Engineering, and CNC programming ― specializations which are key components among AWI’s current education offerings for woodworkers.

For nine years, Doug served as an Associate Professor at Pittsburg State University. During this time he taught a variety of coursework and helped prepare individuals for the woodworking industry.

Doug was appointed the AWI Education Director in 2016 where he continued to grow AWI’s professional development initiatives.  After being promoted in 2019, Doug began his new role as the EVP of the Architectural Woodwork Institute.
