Oiled, Unfinished, Early American Stain, White Washed

The first settlers in America used materials on hand to construct buildings. Today, individuals love to make use of this reclaimed wood when building or remodeling a residence or office. The history of the piece adds to the ambiance of the area. The wood used in this manner comes from barns, stables, mills, and more, and many pieces are hundreds of years old. What makes this wood truly unique and highly coveted?

Reclaimed hand-hewn lumber pieces are truly one of a kind. The different species underwent decades of weathering and wear to obtain their current appearance. As a result, each piece is unique, and the wood varies by where it was first obtained. The settlers never discriminated when it came to the wood used for the structure, so a person could find many varieties of reclaimed wood all coming from the same region.

Additionally, reclaimed wood typically offers more variations that are no longer seen in wood species. For instance, as trees in the past were allowed to grow to their full height, the rings observed in this timber tend to be wider than seen in newer pieces. These pieces often have more knots and other markings that make the piece unique and give it charm. 

If a person is fortunate enough to know where the wood came from, the piece becomes an interesting topic of conversation. When someone asks about the hand-hewn lumber, the owner can not only explain what it is but also provide information on where it came from and what makes it special. That doesn’t happen with pieces that are mass produced today.

“The mantel shelf shipped very quickly and was well packaged. The seller was very communicative and worked with me to come up with the shade of stain that would match my fireplace. Very satisfied with this purchase.”

  • "Absolutely stunning! It fit my space very well and gave our new construction some character. I love them!"
    Beth Huckaby
  • "Love love love these shelves! They looks so great, hold a lot of weight, and are very easy to mount on the wall. The simple brackets look very nice and make it really easy to set up and get into the wall. I got an extra set of brackets to let the long shelves hold a bit more weight and I'm glad I did! Looks good too :) Love it! Get them!"
