Let the past come alive with our custom reclaimed wood products. All reclaimed products made by The Axe and Adze are crafted from 100% reclaimed and individually unique wood. Reclaimed wood displays a character of beauty and rustic charm unmatched by any artificial means. Currently the wood that is used to produce our products is from a reclaimed barn built in 1905 in Huron County, Ontario.
For a very interesting piece of history, an item can be made using wood that has been recovered from the bottom of lakes and rivers or from old harbour wharfs.
From the 1850s and to the early 1900s original old growth forests were harvested and the logs sent down the lakes and rivers to the mills for processing. Approximately 2-3% of the logs were ‘sinkers’ and lost. The cold and relatively oxygen-free waters have perfectly preserved these timbers.
Beautiful wood does not need to come from harvested forests. There are many trees that been designated for removal due to safety risk, damage, disease, or construction. These rescued woods are quite often lone trees with distinctive growth patterns that form internal characteristics that produce exceptional slabs and planks. Let me craft a unique piece into a exclusive piece for the special accent item in your home.
