Reclaiming Wood For Furniture

Recently we took down a barn right here in Waseca, MN, just minutes from our shop. This will allow us to continue to create our reclaimed wood furniture from this antique barnwood. This barn was built circa 1932 according to the land owner who lived on this property when she was a child. There is a lot of great wood here. In the next few days, we will be able to post some pictures of the wood close up but for now we thought we would show you the fun video that our friend Ed took of the frame coming down.

We have our trailers packed full with several loads of these old barnboards, and a few more loads to go until the whole works is cleaned up. Most of the barn wood which is heart pine, is in fantastic shape! Chris keeps talking about what he is going to make in the shop with all of this wood, so stay tuned for some new pictures of his latest furniture creations.

Chris also has a lot of orders currently, so our turn around time right now is approx 4-6 weeks, however this also will depend on the size of the order and other variables such as the actual project requested.

More pictures will follow but for now enjoy the show! We sure did!!!
