Lumber

Nearly all of our reclaimed lumber is Douglas fir, originating from the 1930’s to the 1950’s.  Unlike most reclaimed lumber, these boards have been kept away from the weather, and are very well preserved.  The board faces have a nice reddish brown patina, but they also look great when planed.  Because this lumber comes from old growth trees, the grain makes a tight, and often intricate pattern that is quite stunning.  The combination of the beautiful planed wood with the nail holes -darkened and greyed by long exposure to metal- is very pleasing to the eye, as seen in the picture below.

Shoe rackImage above is an experimental shoe rack design, made from reclaimed Douglas fir 2×4’s salvaged from our scrap pile.  The shoe rack in this image is not stained, or finished in any way.
