Custom Reclaimed Wood Furniture: Beauty & Strength
Throughout history humans have used trees as resources for providing shelter, warmth, food, tools, and comfort for their homes. As populations have exploded, this valuable resource has dwindled. Today, other materials have replaced wood in some areas of production and construction but the demand for wood is still great. For many people, wood appeals to our desire to be connected to the natural world in a way that metals and plastics cannot provide. Using reclaimed wood is a great way to satisfy our need for that connection while conserving our natural resources and preventing waste. Here are a few great reasons to utilize aged, reclaimed wood:
- Repurposing old wood reduces your carbon footprint by reducing the amounts of energy and materials used for your woodworking project. Instead of spending money on lumber that has to be freshly logged, processed, and shipped, you are giving a new life to old materials that would otherwise go to waste. You are preserving the lives of new trees and honoring the sacrifice of trees that were harvested long ago by not discarding them to the trash heap. This saves you money and helps save the planet as well.
- Commercially-grown lumber is farmed and harvested before it has grown to reach full maturity. This produces a weaker plank that cracks and splits under the elements faster than reclaimed wood from older, stronger trees. The overall quality of mature, reclaimed wood is better than young wood in terms of strength, stability, and durability. Reclaimed wood is great for flooring, furniture, trim work, and many other projects.
- Mature, reclaimed wood has character that can’t be faked with stains and distressing techniques. The wood contains features such as nail holes, knots, and distressing that—just like a fingerprint—are 100% unique to each piece of wood.
