RECLAIMED WOOD: A FIELD GUIDE
by Klaas Armster, Alan Solomon
October 1, 2019 Hardcover
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.
