Link of the week

Gleman & Sons Fine Woodworking

Sure, when you visit this week’s link of the week, it appears to be taking you to a custom furniture shop. But, that’s only seeing the tip of the iceberg. You see, this central Florida operation deals extensively in reclaimed lumber… and, boy, do some of those boards have a story to tell!

Whether harvested from the bottom of lakes and rivers where it sank many years ago, or culled from barns and other old outbuildings located throughout the south, these old growth or second cut boards exhibit tight growth rings and characteristics difficult to find in today’s lumber. Besides, if you ever wanted to try a special project made of difficult to find American chestnut, reclaimed is the only way to go.

One thought on “Link of the week”

  1. I’ve always been enamored with the idea of reclaimed lumber and have recently been scouring Craiglist and local yards for something for a large built-in desk’s top. There’s just something about a really old piece of timber with a story to tell and maybe that’s what it is. I just want to tell everyone a story; something beyond I got the lumber at so-and-so lumber yard or worse yet, big-box-o-rama.
