The first handbook on reclaimed wood, combining useful information, rich history, and design ideas



Wood reclaimed from old houses, factories, barns, water tanks, and
boardwalks has become a valuable commodity, treasured for the patina
that gives witness to its history. Our ancestors built well, using
locally sourced lumber that expressed the culture and natural history of
their region: oak and pine in the Northeast; hickory and cypress in the
South; Douglas fir and redwood in the West. Reclaimed Wood: A Field Guide
is the first complete visual handbook to this popular resource,
covering history, culture, salvage, sources, contemporary uses (in
buildings and furniture), and practical advice.
