Used, as in upcycled and recycled wood comes from the demolition and reconstruction of various buildings and mostly it is soft wood – pine, larch, spruce, fir etc.
It’s a pleasure to shave unsightly old planks and watch a wood appear from under the dirt. It has darker shades compared to the new wood, it’s patina (holes from nails and screws, scratches, rot, etc.) is priceless and mainly, each piece tells a story. That said, it has charisma. I know where every piece I work with, comes from and what its history is, this is what I enjoy about my work the most.
I also believe that every recycled piece of furniture I make, will save a tree.
