Time To Fess Up... We're CRAZY About Old Wood!
The colors, the patina.. even the story behind an old building.
We find them fascinating. Every board has a story to tell, and no
two pieces are identical, ...giving depth and character to anything
fashioned from the wood.
So when we got the opportunity to go up into central Missouri and
dismantle an old barn, we jumped at it. This old oak hay barn has
been in continuous use for roughly 50 years and none of the wood
has ever seen a plainer... which means all the original sawmill
marks are still visible.
Here are some of the pictures...
We were able to use about 70% of the siding.
The worlds' forests are disappearing fast. And every project made
from reclaimed wood means fewer trees cut down... and less material
to be buried in the landfill.
When old wood is repurposed, EVERYONE wins!
