Why hemlock and cypress wood?
By nature, these two types of wood are structurally stable and hardy enough to withstand the test of time (or 40 weddings a year :)). Each plank is aesthetically unique with an intricate and sculpted face. Its normal course and uneven texture is sanded smooth to the touch without sacrificing the deep grains. The way light + shadow catch and play on the contoured surface is one of our favorite characteristics of this dynamic wood and why we chose to use this species for our farmhouse tables.
Why reclaimed wood vs. new?
Have you heard how difficult it is to work with reclaimed wood vs. new? Do you think we’re crazy? We’re not…there’s definitely a reason we choose reclaimed! We choose to use reclaimed wood vs. store-bought because patience is a virtue, and in the end, nature has a story to tell. On average reclaimed trees live 100-200 years before being harvested (vs. a premature 40 years for new wood). When you give wood more time, there is an irreplaceable sense of character that you just can’t replicate. Have you ever looked at a slice of wood? Have you ever heard that if you count the rings it will tell you how old a tree is? When you mill an old tree you will see the rings are tightly wound and that is something only time can buy.
