What is Reclaimed Wood?
Reclaimed hardwood is high-quality upcycled material that has been taken from various sources such as old barns, houses, sheds, factories, and warehouses. These structures are disassembled piece by piece so that the most precious natural resource – the wood, can be reclaimed. After the structure is disassembled, the wood is hauled to the lumber handling yard where it undergoes an extensive cleaning and drying process. Nails are marked and removed, and the wood is placed under a metal detector, then stacked for drying. Then, the salvaged hardwood is kiln-dried to 7% moisture. There are various benefits to utilizing reclaimed wood.
- Unique characteristics add charm. Things like wood grains, knots, small patches, pitting, small nail holes and color streaking are characteristics that really set individual lumber and overall furniture pieces apart. Any variance that adds interest to the piece can be considered a plus for your home decor. Every piece of salvaged hardwood is different and cannot be replicated.
- Reuse and recycle. The barnwood process is an excellent green way to preserve the old and vintage and give the precious American hardwood a second life. When it’s harvested responsibly, reclaimed wood is a renewable, eco-friendly resource that reduces landfill waste.
- Versatility of style. Reclaimed wood furniture looks equally as good in both traditional and contemporary home decor style homes.
- It’s just as customizable as standard wood furniture. Design your made-to-order pieces by selecting your finishing touches such as the hand-applied stain or metal hardware used. Our expert Amish artisans take great pride in building each piece unique to you.
