Reclaimed lumber is processed wood that is retrieved from its original sources for purposes of consecutive use. Most reclaimed lumber comes from timbers and decking that is taken from old barns, warehouses and even some shuttered factories, as wood used to be the primary source of material used to build most structures, because of its abundance and easy availability. Some companies even use wood from less traditional structures such as wine barrels, boxcars and even abandoned coal mines. Reclaimed or antique lumber is used primarily for home building, cabinetry, furniture and flooring. Nothing matches the uniqueness and character of reclaimed wood, and people are going to great lengths to find reclaimed wood furniture that makes a stylistic statement about themselves and their homes. The Oak Furniture Shop has been proficiently handcrafting beautiful selections of the finest reclaimed furniture, and ships those pieces throughout the entire country.

As with any exceptional product that is considered a quality made commodity that features truly unique and original concepts and designs, there are those who will not only try to cheaply and poorly duplicate it, but will also attempt to pass off these counterfeit pieces as an original and genuine product. When you are investing to find signs of age on an older piece, you will probably be able to find indications of age, such as boards separating on the seam separation, and notice how a new piece will look flat and smooth on top. Other indications include black marks that indicate there’s been water on that piece at some time, such as from a plant, nicks and dings on the corners, and even worm holes, but not drill holes.
