The Amazing Journey of Reclaimed Barnwood:

If you look close at this 14′ harvest table you will see the top is made from two 16″ wide boards book matched from the same cut section of one tree. It was installed in the barn and aged for 120 years or so. After being reclaimed, brought back to our warehouse, washed and dried. The wood was then put back into storage, picked out by one of our clients; not realizing they were from the same section of one single tree. Then finally laid out for install to make this 14′ harvest table. Visually appealing to the eye is the perfectly matching grain, circle saw marks, and knots that tell this wonderful 100 years! Making it a reclaimed barn wood story at a glance.

You can see this and some of our other tables in person at any of the Pizzeria Biga locations.



The material used to panel this wall is designed using reclaimed pine boards from the roof of old barns. Every roof a barn received has distinguishing characteristics in the form of delicate small nails randomly spaced throughout each board. There are sure to be plenty of nail holes in each board, making each board have a very distinctive, original look. Naily roof boards come in random thickness, random widths, lengths and is sold with no alterations.

This table has been hand crafted from an authentic reclaimed interior barn door out of Michigan. Original square cut nails, as well as hinges have left this table top with the character you would expect to see from a 100 year old barn. The reflection of a working barn shows on the rope marks left on the hand picked legs specially chosen for this dining area table.

Designed and built by Detroit native Jason Krol, our M1 Table bridges the gap between rugged and modern. Constructed from reclaimed Michigan barn pinewood, it follows the clean lines of the Parsons Table.

With its generous dimensions of 7 x 3 feet, it comfortable seats 8 people or offers plenty of desk space for people who like to spread out.

The wood for the M1 Table comes from a dismantled 150 year old barn on the grounds of Swanbeck Farm in Fenton, MI.

Above is a set of three reclaimed barn wood tables we made for Pizzeria Biga again. Believe they are going to the new Ann Arbor location. You can see some of our other tables at the Royal oak and Southfield locations. Made from distressed hay loft boards or what we call distressed brown board. A clear Zinsser Quick 15 finish was used which tends to give a more natural uneven clear coat and brings out a deep reddish toner with darker accents.

36″ Square coffee table. Custom made from 18″ wide brown board. We left the angle notches on the bottom of the 4″x4″ barn beam brace legs that give a unique almost floating effect. A water born polyurethane was used to not darken the color and have a good match for the room decor. Perfect for a corner sectional and a little high for playing family games.

We built this arbor in our back yard you can come and see as a sample of what you can do with our barn log sleepers. Well that and we wanted a barn log arbor.
We get a lot of these logs hewn on one side, and we sell them very reasonable. See them on our Unique Reclaimed Barnwood page.

Here is a nice island counter one of our clients built using our reclaimed 2×8 maple joists. Maple is great for counters and the reclaimed red maple has much more characters including the darker inner grain, quarter sawn flaking, some curly aspects, distressing and saw marks, and nail and worm holes. They did a great job on this one. So hats off from us at Christopher Construction and Reclaimed Barnwood.
