Reclaimed Wood Gets A Second Chance

Reclaimed wood

The character of reclaimed wood offsets the cool metals

Introducing reclaimed wood into your Kitchen gives instant warmth and charm to your home.  From flooring to furniture, open shelving and cabinetry accents, to actual beams across the ceiling:   the choices of where to add this accent is plentiful, although reclaimed wood itself is not.  Many of these older trees are gone and the wood is no longer available.  Younger trees are less dense so the resulting color is unmatched in older trees.

Working with reclaimed wood in custom cabinetry and countertops is a fun and creative challenge for our Millshop.  The first step is often foraging through old barns in mid-Pennsylvania looking for a hidden treasure.  The longer planks can be used for countertops and wide shelving.  The shorter pieces work well when incorporated into the cabinetry design.

A recent find produced 6 rustic beams that are the perfect finishing touch for our client’s tudor home.Tudor renovation with reclaimed wood beams
