About Reclaimed Lumber
Whether you are reflooring your home or business or building a coffee table or a cigar box just for fun, reclaimed lumber is a handsome, character-rich, and eco-sensitive material to consider. Certain types of wood are only available in reclaimed form, such as longleaf pine and American chestnut. Yet even wood varietals that remain common today are more attractive when reclaimed because the aging process and exposure to the elements lend them a sense of history as well as a lustrous patina. With natural resources under strain all over the world, you can convey your support for "green" strategies by sourcing recycled building materials such as reclaimed lumber for every project you pursue. The vast inventory of reclaimed lumber on eBay includes pieces big and small from a variety of backgrounds, including reclaimed barn lumber of different colors and thicknesses. Former floorboards, beams, and slabs are waiting to live again in the form of new hardwood floors, staircases, mantels, or whatever else you are building. No matter how modern an object's purpose or design may be, the spirit of generations past and an air of vintage class are baked right into a responsibly harvested piece of reclaimed lumber.
