Why Reclaimed Wood?

For me, personally, I love the texture and the character of reclaimed wood.  I like that is has a story, it has a past. 

On an environmentally friendly level, when reclaimed wood is used,  the demand for newly sourced wood is decreased, which helps curb deforestation. If harvested responsibly, reclaimed wood is a renewable resource that reduces landfill waste as well as the use of environmental hazards to manufacture new products.

Using reclaimed wood in a small business like this, adds time and a lot more effort to the making process.  It has to be prepped by being cleaned, dried and sanded, which is a tough and time consuming process to start with.  Then the painting can begin.  So as you can see, it is a labour of love.  The sign you end up with has had a lot of care and attention put into it and you end up with such a unique piece for your home or as the perfect gift.
