While most of our focus is on tables, mantels, and countertops, we get involved in a few other projects where our skills and materials fit. Here’s just a few of the items that we carry or produce.
Wood accent walls have become extremely trendy. There is such a variety of wood that can be used from pallet wood to red barnwood; from brown board to old flooring; and from fence wood to scrap hardwoods. It all depends on your taste. A picture perfect gray is a little difficult to find these days, but it does pop up from time to time. Most of our wall grade wood runs $4.50 to $6.50 per square foot. We are somewhat unique in that our material is all kiln dried, trimmed, and 100% usable – no cracks, rotted ends, irregular, edges, etc. Trimming or special sanding costs extra.
Rusty Corrugated Tin
Rusty tin, really? Yep, this stuff is great. You can almost see the seagulls, smell the fish, and heard the boats bumping against the docks. This rusty tin is a classic for seafood restaurants. While not quite the sea, our rusty tin comes from farm shed roofs in Minnesota. It has seen plenty of rain, sunshine, and wind but not so much sea salt. Tin has great applications as ceiling covering, wainscot, and accent walls. Let your creativity go wild!
Sliding Barn Doors
Sliding barn doors are another great trend. There’s lots of ways to make barn doors as well. We are fortunate to get in a pretty nice selection of original rollers. In addition, we can work with blacksmiths to create some great ironwork. Finding just the right material for these doors is a little tricky. Most salvaged wood has 2 pretty distinct sides, for example a dirty interior and painted exterior. But we keep our eyes open for just the right stuff.
