Woodstock Vintage Lumber Brings New Life to Reclaimed Lumber
The once prevalent hard wood forests of the US were heavily logged without replanting in the 18th and 19th centuries. Those hard woods that were once the bones of ships, barns, Victorian homes, manufacturing facilities and other buildings are now scarce, many of the remaining forests protected from logging. We are fortunate to have companies like Woodstock Vintage Lumber to thank for salvaging those woods and offering them a second life in furniture, beams, flooring, mantels & more.
With custom design services, Woodstock Vintage Lumber works with clients to create works of art built from pieces of American history that fit exact specifications to meet their home and business decor needs.
More than just furniture, Woodstock Vintage Lumber allows you add history to your vintage home decor with counter tops, floors, mantles and reclaimed wood plank walls.
Need beams? At Woodstock Vintage Lumber, antique beams are reclaimed using a socially responsible process. They restore the lumber to the highest standards of quality while retaining the unique look created by nail holes, weather checks, saw kerfs, and knots — all natural traits that allow the wood to tell its story in your home or business.

I had the honor of working on the last Launch Director of the Space Shuttle, Mike Lienbauch(s), house. He was replacing all his “board & baton” cedar with “hardi-board” of the same style. I recovered as much of the cedar as I could. I made many frames that I stretched canvas over to do my oil paintings on. I tell the people that obtain my paintings the history of it all, but of course, there is no “proof”. I don’t care! It’s historical to me and a great honor to use his wood & to repurpose it! Also, to make something of my own totally from scratch is an art form that’s dying away. (I’m hoping I’m wrong!) anyway, I just wanted to share my story! Thank you for reading

would you have or know where i could buy a handmade antique wooden shovel?
I want to buy the San Haggerty’s hand carvered drift wood table. Please.v
Looking for some ideas on things to make with tongue & groove cedar planks, from the 1890s-very early 1900s. I am not exactly sure what they were originally used for, though I suspect it was replacement pieces or extras from a very large estate built in 1891. Wainscotting, maybe? Anyway, the planks are not finished or painted in any way. Most internet searches seem to pull up all the same ideas & pics. Or if anyone knows a contact in northern Calif, near SF Bay Area, that might be looking for “historical wood”, please post an email or business name I can contact. Any websites with unique ideas for keeping these beautiful hardwood planks from rotting in a pile, would be great! Thanks so much!
If the wood could talk what stories we would hear? I love finding old things the history behind it all!
I would like to know if you still have prints and pictures for sale I remember seeing them about a year ago an old Indian Motorcycle was one of them
Sure do! Check out artofthepick.com
Bravo for repurposing salvage lumber. I live in mid-Michigan and growing up in a modest house in the city, but the lot had magnificent huge trees! 7 of them must have been at least 70 years old. Now when I go buy they are all gone. We never had air-conditioning, but in those days we could not have afforded it, but the house was always shaded also. The city was peppered with chestnut, black walnut and elm trees. disease destroyed the elms, neglect killed the others. I often wonder what wood the future woodworkers are going to use when all the trees are gone, or off limits. If I had a billion dollars, I would plant a forest and take care of it for the rest of my life, hoping someone would carry on that tradition.
