Why Use Reclaimed Lumber
Reclaimed, or recycled, lumber is material salvaged from older buildings. It is often from the era when the timber came from larger trees with tighter growth rings. It is generally tighter grained and often clear.
Reclaimed materials are also part of the overall recycling potential of wood products which don’t have to be thrown in a dump. Instead they can be reborn into new projects where their beauty can be appreciated over, and over.
Pictured above right: some of the 60,000 board feet of timbers from the Marshall Wells department store/warehouse formally located in Portland, Oregon. This building was built in 1915. The timbers were from the era of old growth forests. This is all Douglas fir. It ranges in size from 25×25 to 6×11, including 6 x 22, 8 x 21, 11 x 19, 16 x 20, 25 x 25. Lengths are 6′ to 18′. This material can be manufactured into other products such as paneling and flooring.
Pictured here at right is some Redwood from a watertank which used to serve as the water storage tank for a town in the Alaskan Aleutians. This material is old growth, clear all heart including vertical grain. The majority of the 15,000 board feet is 3×6. This served as the walls. It also contains some 3×10, 4×8 and 6×6 all heart which were the floor, joists and posts. This material can also be remanufactured into other products.

The Reclaiming Process
1. The reclaimed wood arrives at our yard and gets sorted.
2. We carefully remove any old nails or screws.
3. The wood gets milled into any product you may request.
4. The final product, in this case boards.
