Reclaimed Wood Dining Table
Wood was once the primary building material in the United States because it was strong, abundant and relatively inexpensive. Today, wood has become scarce and expensive so reclamation of old wood has become a natural alternative. One of the more common reclaimed woods has been Longleaf Pine. It was once used to build factories and warehouses during the Industrial Revolution and became the most functional wood for construction in America. The trees were slow growing taking anywhere from 200 to 400 years to reach full maturity. They grew tall, straight and naturally resisted mold and insects making them perfect for building homes and commercial structures. More important, pine was abundant growing in thick forests that spanned over 140,000 square miles. But today our forests have become scarce and tree farms do not have the patience to wait 200 years. Instead, trees are cut down before their prime making the wood less strong than it’s ancestors and more costly to harvest. So it’s no wonder that reclaimed pine is used today to build furniture, flooring, cabinetry and even siding. And just like the historic Longleaf Pine this reclaimed wood dining table will last for years to come. Got wood?
