When we saw the opportunity to acquire a collection of reclaimed redwood lumber from Northern California, we couldn’t pass it up! With redwood’s striking color, exclusivity, and historic significance, we knew this lumber would be a perfect addition to our reclaimed wood line.
This wood began its journey hundreds of years ago as seedlings in the coastal forests of present-day California. After many years of growth, it was harvested in 1972 for use in 30,000 gallon red wine tanks in a prestigious Napa Valley winery. 44 years later, it was decommissioned and is now here in Gig Harbor, Washington, ready to be crafted into stunning doors that will grace your home as their final destination.
Redwood was once the premiere choice for storing wine because of its strength and rot-resistant. The tannins in the wood are also thought to add complexity and richness to the flavor of the wine. The lumber we have acquired has a subtle stain from years of wine fermentation, indentations from the rivets of cask hoops, and is even infused with a sweet wine aroma that is easily detectable in the unfinished lumber.
Less than 3% of ancient redwoods remain in California, and because of their endangered status, they are no longer allowed to be felled. This means the worldwide supply of redwood lumber is dwindling. We are fortunate to have acquired such a beautiful lot of this precious, salvaged lumber, and we seek to honor it with our craftsmanship.
