Reclaiming Wood from Ontario Pioneer Barns: A “Behind the Scenes” Look! Step inside old Ontario barns

The process of reclaiming wood properly is a time-consuming, tedious effort. Unfortunately many demolitionist in the past have forgone the effort it takes to dismantle a barn properly and opted to burn the wood.. a cultural tragedy, in our opinion. The history in old wood is remarkable. A lot of has to do with simple economics.. if the value of the wood reclaimed exceeds the price a demolitoner can charge for the cost of demolition, he or she will opt to reclaim¬†rather than destroy. The process of reclaiming properly is more than a “crash and burn” approach. It is a good thing reclaimed wood has received the appreciation it deserves in the past few years, as more demolitioners opt for the “save the wood” approach versus the “destroy” approach. The demolitionist we work with, thankfully, reclaim the wood.

Today’s blog post gives you an extensive “behind the scenes” look – through pictures – of the process of demolition and reclamation. The pictures below will allow you to step inside the pioneer barns that dot the Ontario landscape. We have had the pleasure of reclaiming wood for tables, buffets, benches ect ect ect for over 5 years. The market is saying there is value in this very old wood, this historical wood, and we couldn’t be happier! To any demolitioners ¬†out there – call us before burning! You’ll notice there are many different types of wood dimensions – even in the completely raw form. This is why we design all our furniture around what the raw material already are – avoiding milling and lathing – to provide 100% original face distressing in our final product.
