Customer Photos

Wood from WRTC has already lived a long and useful first life, and after it is salvaged and cleaned can live a long and useful second life as part of a new structure! Our wood is used in many different applications, from large specialty construction and restoration projects to individual boards. These are a few projects which have incorporated our reclaimed wood.

 

Whitewash Feature Wall

Rustic yet modern feature wall that one of our customers created using reclaimed whitewash barnboard T&G. This adds character and warmth to any space.

Reclaimed Feature Wall

A beautiful feature wall that one of our customers did using reclaimed snakewood barnboard. We gave this barnboard the nickname "snakewood" because it came from the BC interior where there are quite a few rattlesnakes and with the varied colours in the material it looked like a rattlesnakes hide.

Rustic Picture Frame

We participated in the Global Buyers Mission 2014 sponsored by BC Wood in Whistler in September 2014, and we were asked to donate something for the prize draw. Of course we had to find something that incorporated reclaimed, so we asked Shaun Bird (BirdmantheWelder.com) to make something out of our reclaimed wood for us. We sent him some of the painted barnboard material, and we got a fantastic rustic frame as a result!

X Frame Harvest Table

One of our customers built this beautiful trestle table!  Here's what he has to say: “Final dimensions (give or take an inch for finishing and bevelling) 64" long, 48" wide x 34 1/2" high. The thing has to be at least 300+ lbs! I made it so each surface plank can be removed...if needed. The x-frame legs are held together with lags and PL construction adhesive. The foot-rails are lagged but can be removed. I was able to completely construct it in the garage and bring it in the front door using U-haul straps, two people and a felt pad to slide it across the hardwood once inside. So far I have only finished the surface with a rub-on poly. It looks hand rubbed with oil but has polyurethane protection. The saw marks and sanding striations came out beautifully. The only wood on this thing that is not from your mill are the table top supports that top each "X". This was simple framing 2x12 lumber I laminated together, stained, and distressed. I went more of a creosote colour to contrast the fir. (i.e. railway ties, without the mess or stink).

The problem is now, I have people interested in me making them the same table."

The interior finishings are all custom designed to fit the house.
