Reclaimed lumber is processed wood retrieved from its original application for purposes of subsequent use. Most reclaimed lumber comes from timbers and decking rescued from old barns, factories and warehouses, although some companies use wood from less traditional structures such as boxcars, coal mines and wine barrels. Reclaimed or antique lumber is used primarily for decoration and home building. Applications include siding, architectural details, cabinetry, furniture and flooring.
Australian Oak ranges in color from pinkish to deep brown. It is straight, open and even grained with a uniform texture, which allows for excellent staining properties.
Favored among many woodworkers for veneers and specialty items, Birch is a great choice for those looking to design their first custom furniture piece. With a light reddish-brown heartwood, Birch turns, glues and finishes well.
Black Walnut's favorable working characteristics and rich color make it one of the most valued domestic lumbers. The heartwood of the tree ranges from dark tan to a deep chocolate brown, sometimes with streaks of purple and green hues.
This reclaimed lumber was salvaged from the San Diego bait docks in Mission Bay. Marine wood has a unique surface texture created from years of ocean exposure creating amazing hues of turquoise and gold rust.
Sequoia is easily machined, easy to saw and nail and has superior gluing properties as well as superior finish-holding ability. It is known for its easy maintenance and beautiful color: a deep reddish brown that darkens with age.
Generally sawn into lumber and used for making beautiful windows, doors, knotty paneling, sub floor and furniture. White Pine is light in weight with good working properties. It turns, planes and shapes well and can be sanded to a smooth finish.
Red Cedar Burls
A burl results from a tree undergoing some form of stress. It may be caused by an injury, virus or fungus. Most burls grow beneath the ground, attached to the roots as a type of malignancy that is generally not discovered until the tree dies or falls over. Burls yield very peculiar and highly figured wood, prized for its beauty and rarity. It is sought after by furniture makers, artists, and wood sculptors.
Also known as Nootka Cypress, Yellow Cedar is native to the coastal regions of the Northwestern US. It is a fairly sought after wood for finish carpentry because of its durability, stability and weather resistant qualities. Yellow Cedar's texture, uniform color and straight grain will take a fine finish.
