Thanks for the link. I love the history of reclaimed wood and the whole concept of the reclamation process. As the video says, the more info we have about the wood, the more fun it is. There’s a good size wood reclaiming facility near us called Pioneer Millworks in Farmington NY. I was out there a few years ago, got a tour, and saw some pretty neat stuff….huge timbers from a canal lock, the remnants of Kodak’s “building #2” being slabbed into flooring, and lots of wine vat and wine barrel material from some of the local wineries from the Finger Lakes region. Too cool.

Here’s a look at some of the white oak wine vat lumber that I grabbed from Pioneer Mill Works while I was there:

I love seeing old wood being reborn into something else.
I still have quite a few boards of 100 year old native Iowa red oak.
I guess that’s why I have a hard time throwing any scraps away.

Thanks gfor the video link Jerry!

Not much old wood around here(native), maybe some old Fir beams/planks.

Well they’re only one state away from you, but I could never go there easily, I live in Oregon, but we do have this amazing place for reclaimed lumber.
