Reclaimed wood usually comes to us in great need of TLC and elbow grease before it can begin to resemble the inspirational products we offer. The process of taking dilapidated, forgotten wood and repurposing it to give it new life is not for the faint of heart.
Before the wood ever hits the kiln to be dried, the planer to be shaped, or the saw to be cut, it must be cleaned, cleared, and denailed. This is not just tapping down a few nail heads that have poked their way out from their flush, 100-year-old resting place. This is a craft that involves diligence, patience, attention to detail, physical and mental strength, and a plethora of tools.
Once the metal is gone, the warmth and significance of the material begins to shine, revealing the promise of the product.
