Vintage Woodworkz handcrafts custom furniture and architectural pieces from reclaimed wood that is salvaged from American Midwestern barns that are no longer in use. The Midwest region’s rich agricultural history is preserved, while providing an up cycled, earth friendly alternative to common woodworking practices. Rustic barnwood and antique lumber proudly display the vintage patina and unforgettable agricultural history of more than a century. The unique characteristics of mortises, tenons, hand hewn ax marks, nail holes and cracks give the wood a beauty in its own right, and tell the story of the land the trees were harvested from, the craftsmen that built the barn and the purpose the barn served to the individual farmer. Working with reclaimed barnwood combines creativity with agricultural history, as no two pieces are alike and every piece has an individual story to tell.
Vintage Woodworkz was established in 2014 by William F. Lee, a thirty year veteran of the residential building industry whose talents have earned him the title Master Craftsman Woodworker. William has merged his experience, passion and talents to create unique pieces that reflect each customer’s individual style and design vision. Great pride is taken in all of our handcrafted, reclaimed wood products and we work closely with owners, architects, and builders to custom tailor each order to its specific application.
