My family has owned and operated a custom lumber in addition to furniture shop for the last seventy-five years. Our goal is to reclaim wood from barns or sheds that are falling down, hazardous or simply no longer useful. Many times, the owners are at a loss as to how to safely tear down and clear away these structures. The task requires specialized gear in addition to knowledge. These barns in addition to sheds are properly actually old, with rich histories. Then by reclaiming the wood, the two of us provide the wood a new life. Without our efforts, the structures would collapse, be burned, or end up in a landfill. Instead, the reclaimed wood is repurposed into custom built furniture. Working with reclaimed wood rather than new lumber requires a unique way of crafting each piece. The lumber often includes trim work, has holes, cracks, or leftover staining. The two of us work closely with our buyers to craft a piece of furniture which meets their vision. From the sanding in addition to sealant as well as any knobs or pulls, it’s a detailed, challenging, but also rewarding process. The finished product is one-of-a-kind furniture that is built to last. Most of our buyers prefer to be involved in the building process, particularly working with one of our craftsmen at every stage, in addition to providing opinions. Some buyers are ecstatic with simply selecting the wood, specifying their goals, in addition to then waiting for the end result. My family business can also supply lumber for those people who are taking on a do-it-yourself project. However, building a functional in addition to charming piece of custom furniture isn’t all that simple; we’re often asked to step in in addition to give assistance. Although our custom built pieces are a bit more high-priced than a mass produced product, there is no comparison in quality.
