Historically, Douglas Fir has been the primary wood used in construction in Southern California; hence, we maintain a large, consistent inventory of reclaimed Douglas Fir at all times. Each building that comes down provides vintage wood with its own unique characteristics. Material ranges in sizes from 1x, 2x, 4x, 6x, 8x all the way up to 24″ x 24″.
Reclaimed Wood Products LLC also sources reclaimed wood throughout the US and Europe. In addition to Douglas Fir, we carry many other species, including Oak, Maple, Pine, Walnut, Redwood, and Cherry. This material varies from hand-hewn beams, to live edge slabs, to rough-sawn full dimensional lumber, to 4-side-smooth boards, occasionally with original vintage paint. We broker exceptional material by the truckload from all over the country.
Our reclaimed wood is sold on a wholesale basis in truckload quantities, as well as smaller quantities for architects, contractors, furniture makers, and other end users of reclaimed wood. We usually have in stock, or can easily locate, requests for all sizes and quantities of reclaimed wood. Rest assured that, with our experienced eye for quality reclaimed wood, we only accept about 20% of the material that we inspect—allowing us to provide only the highest quality vintage wood to our customers.
Our reclaimed hardwoods generally originate from barns located in the Midwest, erected in the mid 1800’s through the early 1900’s, or from local forests that have fire-killed or fallen dead trees. This beautiful material is a very real part of America’s history. We stock a sizable inventory of vintage hardwood material at our Los Angeles facility, as well as our Midwest facility, to be shipped as needed. Species range from White and Red Oak, to Maple, Beech, Hickory, Ash, and Elm, in the form of large slabs, hand-hewn beams, dimensional lumber, wide plank barn siding, and flooring blanks. The above pictures show hand-hewn Oak beams, circular-sawn Maple beams, antique Oak beams, and California White Oak slabs.
