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.
A modern renovation of a hair salon on Dunsmuir St in Vancouver: The brown wood came from the Glenrose Cannery, and the painted wood came from the Western Forest Products Queensborough mill. Samuel Bligh chose this wood to create a vibrant, welcoming and uplifting atmosphere. You can see more photos of the space here: Proper Hair Lounge
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!
