About Reclaimed Wood
Using reclaimed wood benefits the environment, and can help save existing trees. Reclaimed lumber is also higher quality in general than new lumber. It is highly desired for its history and character. Reclaimed lumber provides a look that is simply unmatched by new lumber. Other characteristics include beautiful color, stability, durability, hardness, texture, and fragrance.
Heart wood is the dense, dark wood in the center of a tree. It is much dryer and more stable than the outer rings or "sap wood". The only reliable source for the richly colored, dense "heart pine" is from factories and mills built during the Industrial Revolution. Barns constructed up through the early part of the 19th century often contained oak beams. Hand hewn antique oak beams are now used by architects, designers, and furniture makers for their vintage yet sophisticated look.
No two pieces will look exactly alike—individual masterpieces.
Pictures are representative. Finish and physical appearance may vary greatly.
Reclaimed Wood Finishes and Tannins
The finish reacts to the natural tannins in the wood. In reclaimed wood you will see both sap wood and heartwood together. Sap wood is the newer wood just beneath the bark in tree trunks and is lighter than the heartwood, which is the older central wood of the tree. While the heartwood is rich with tannins, the sap wood is not, so one section may receive stain differently than another. These are all natural characteristics of the wood and make each piece unique.
