About Modern Timber Craft
Modern Timber Craft started with a home improvement project. An old front porch on a was supported with beautiful Red Oak joists that just so happened to make beautiful floating mantels. A few cuts here, some routing and sanding there, and before too long the intergral parts of our nearly 100 year old porch were enjoying a new chapter in their lives.
Within a year the business had grown into a full time side-gig, which involved a lot of late nights and a very cluttered basement and garage.
Having grown up with a big barn in direct view of my bedroom window as a kid, I had always gazed with wonder, imagining in my mind how life may have been when the barn was in its prime. I am filled with mixed emotions seeing the demise of so many of our iconic American barns. But it is important to keep in mind there are literally millions of them, and it is best to preserve them in any way possible. Its also worth mentioning that these buildings produce some of the most beautiful finished products. Man has yet to perfect the effects of time on old growth timber that even comes close to comparing to that of nature.
Nearly 10 years into this, my wife Raquel, our dog Bear, and an amazing group of people behind the scenes help to continue this adventure. We are passionate about creating an experience our customers will enjoy and remember while providing them with a unique and authentic piece of history. All of our reclaimed wood products are Certified Reclaimed and are re-purposed with you and your home in mind.
Thanks for stopping by!
