Our barn wood furniture is made from beams, flooring and siding. We hand select the wood for their unique grain and texture to ensure that the finished table will be the centerpiece of your home. We carefully cull out the best pieces and the ones with nail holes and character lines, cracks, in tact. And then we take the boards and cut them into legs or trim them for the skirt side and the most unusual or prettiest we use for the table top.
Farm tables from reclaimed barn wood embody a rich tapestry of American history. Some Chestnut wood we have reclaimed is 120 years old and has had shingles on top that have given it some color and the wood is really dark. In the same barn the same trees were cut down and made into board form; so one is a blond table and the other is a rich mahogany brown from the same lot.
These magnificent hardwoods succumbed in the early 20th century to blight and all but disappeared from our forests, but not before many giant timbers hewn from chestnut, pine, oak and hickory were employed in the construction of barns and farm homes throughout the Northeast and Midwest.
Barn wood furniture preserves not only the beauty of the ancient trees, but the enduring quality of superior wood. Furnishings from reclaimed barns will last for generations to come. Exposed to the elements the old barns weaken and rot, the great beams and richly grained floorboards lost forever.
We respect the heritage of the old growth forests and trees that the pioneering farmers cleared for their pastures and fields and we build our farm tables and furnishings with care and craftsmanship so that our customers can experience a connection with the beauty and history of America's rural past.
