Reclaimed Timber Furniture 

Using reclaimed timbers to build your furniture can produce stunning results. The inherent beauty of old wood creates unique pieces of furniture. Old timbers tell a unique story too. The old pine that we used to make the batch of floating shelves shown in the gallery below was sourced from Canterbury Cathedral – the cathedral is currently undergoing renovation works including new joinery and these boards – originally roof joists - were salvaged from the old bell tower.

Old timber is not only very beautiful, it’s often more durable too - centuries old pine was allowed to grow at a much slower rate than the forested production of today permits, which makes for a stronger, more stable material. Finally, the ecological benefits of reusing old timber is obvious.

Reclaimed scaffold board floating shelves

We can turn old scaffolding boards into shelves too - their individual scars and markings recall the history of their use.
