Exploring the Benefits of Custom Reclaimed Wood FurnitureUncategorized
RECLAIMED WOOD FURNITURE RUSTIC TABLES
Reclaimed wood projects are a great way to bring a little history into your home and breathe new life into old materials. Many people think of reclaimed wood as any wood that was once used as something else and has been repurposed. Some folks use pallets, broken fence panels, or random roadside finds for their repurposing projects. While that is fine, a quality reclaimed wood product is made from up-cycled wood that is a hundred or more years old.
Aged wood is more about the age of the tree when harvested than the age board or plank of lumber. It refers to wood from trees that were allowed to mature before being harvested for lumber. Mature lumber has tighter grains than younger wood which makes it less porous and more durable. When you buy fresh lumber from the store today, it is often sourced from younger trees that provide softer, weaker planks with wider, more porous grains that are very susceptible to the natural elements. Lumber from older trees is denser and heavier than from young trees. When you source wood from a structure or piece of furniture that has lasted for ages, that wood has usually been sourced from older, stronger trees.
Aged, reclaimed wood provides an old-fashioned aesthetic that you just can’t achieve with newer wood. Aged wood tells a story with its knots, nail holes, crackles, and distressed patina. While there are tricks that you can use to create an “aged” look on young wood, you can’t give young wood the strength, density, and durability of mature wood. Also, every board of reclaimed, aged wood shares its history through its unique features and connects you with the past in a way that is impossible to imitate. For this reason, aged wood products are a staple of rustic country and country chic decor.
