Every piece of reclaimed lumber is unique and has its own special features. So not only is the wood full of character, but using reclaimed lumber comes with several benefits.

  1. Size: You will find aged barn boards are larger than newer wood that is found today. Larger boards offer more options when creating larger pieces of furniture and larger projects.
  2. Unique features: As already mentioned, each piece of wood has different features and even though they may come from the same structure, no two pieces are the same.
  3. Eco-Friendly: When using reclaimed lumber new trees are not being cut down. Therefore, it’s better for the environment.
  4. History: Each time you use reclaimed lumber for your home or project you are preserving a bit of history. You are bringing new birth to an old object that could have been demolished.
  5. Strong: Barnwood may be old but it is strong. It is ideal for making furniture and flooring. Old barns were made from old-growth wood which is stronger than most wood that is harvested today. The wood had longer to harden due to hundreds of years of growth.
