Customer projects

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.

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 ( 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! 


A great finish on a lovely barnboard fireplace surround!


Such a charming fireplace! Love how this turned out. Made by Concrete Lifestyles.

What our customers are saying:

Wood flooring with Hardwax finish

---Thanks to a good customer of ours for this update on her wood floor with an OSMO hardwax finish, which was installed 10 years ago and has survived floods, puppies, and family life beautifully!

..It has been incredible! I am so glad that we went the route of solid wood & hard wax instead of laminate & plastic coating! ...

My flood was several inches deep all over our kitchen/livingroom. The basement ceiling had to have holes drilled into it in order to release the water that poured down from behind the kitchen cabinets. All my neighbours came over to help move outside all the furniture from both the main floor and the basement so that we could get rid of the water and dry the surfaces out. Everyone expressed condolences, feeling so sorry for me, everyone thinking that I would certainly lose my wood flooring. When the water was washed away and the floor dried with towels, we all stood back expecting to see the floor distort, buckle, split or otherwise come apart...and nothing happened! The entire expanse of wood floor looked completely untouched! It still matches 100% the identical wood flooring at the end of the hall and in the bedrooms where the water hadn't reached (when the water reached the air vents it flowed down them to the basement). You cannot see where the flood stopped and started!! There were those who warned that it might take a few weeks for the floor to start to buckle or rise - but a full year later, you still can't see any evidence of a flood, you would never know that there had been a flood in the house!
