The Beauty Process

Collection of nails from wood Vintage Hardware

If you use reclaimed lumber like we do, it will likely come to you really dirty, not straight, and covered in unidentifiable matter. The first thing required is the removal of nails and other interesting metal objects that have found their way into the wood over the course of it’s previous life. This is an extremely important part of the extraction process of reclaimed wood. The next component of our reclaimed process involves pressure washing the wood clean, stripping off old paint, sanding or the use of a planer to remove any remaining dirt or marks on the surface of the boards. Sometimes because of the age of the wood,  it is necessary to repeat these steps more than once to get to the desired look and feel we expect for our designs.
