Reclaimed wood may just be the perfect building material for the next project you will work on. It is adaptable, strong, and eco-friendly. Recycled wood could be give you a nice rustic look, or it could be milled again to get a new finish. And it can also save you a significant amount of money. The following are some tips on how to find, select, and work with recycled timber:
1. Get the reclaimed wood straight from its source. Often, you can get recycled wood at a very low price. Begin by visiting a demolition site. You might be allowed to look around and select pieces of wood you want, and if you get too lucky, you might get them for free! Sometimes, demolition companies have arrangements to sell reclaimed wood in bulk at a very cheap price, so they are usually willing to give the timber to you if you transport it yourself.
