We reclaim old-growth timber that might otherwise be destined to landfill.
Reading the rings
For the team at Urban Reclamations our best days are spent standing inside an old barn or building, taking note of the building timbers that are old growth, possibly hundreds of year's old, yet still stand proud. These timbers have unique patina that only Mother Nature could paint and when handled with skill and craftsmanship create one-of-a-kind, conversation pieces for your dining pleasure.
Read the history of the wood we're currently using:
A labor of love
We spend countless hours sanding and shaping the wood to unlock its unique colors, grains and story. Next, we hand-forge steel supports for each piece to make it as beautiful as it is functional. Finally, we finish our furniture with a natural seasoning and protective coating to preserve the poetry of the wood that truly creates a one-of-a-kind table that you can feel excited to put in your home!
Hand forged smoked steel
Our table bases are crafted with 1/8" thick steel for a solid look and sturdy feel. We create a conversation between materials. Allowing for the beauty, history, relevance and conversation begging to be told through the marriage of the steel to the wood. When you have a visual balance such as this, you cannot help but stare. We like that!
Our wood stock comes with weather, wear, and holes that we fill and smooth with hand-crafted steel pieces. The marriage of wood and steel extends from the bases into the table itself, providing a dining experience that you can feel reverberating through your China or stemware.
