I specialize in making unique tables and furniture out of old lumber. The furniture I make is made from antique pine, oak, walnut, maple, cherry and other native lumber. Every piece is individually crafted using hand selected reclaimed lumber.
This rescued historical material is from 100 + year old barns, out buildings, commercial buildings and houses. This lumber dates from turn-of-the-century or older where timber was abundant and big. Logs were taken from forest and sent down rivers to the mill. The material used in these pieces is old growth lumber. The density and tight grain of this wood is unlike the lumber you buy today.
The circular saw marks from the old mill, nail and bolt holes and the patina that comes after 100 years of aging makes every piece entirely unique and none are identical except for the design. I spend a great amount of time painstakingly sanding this material to achieve a smooth, luxurious texture without loosing the original characteristics of the aged wood.
