Product Overview

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 geographical 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 redwood barn doors that will grace your home as their final destination.

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.

Redwood was once the premiere choice for storing wine because it is so strong and rot-resistant, and the tannins in the wood are thought to add complexity and richness to the flavor of the wine. The lumber we have acquired has a subtle stain from the years of wine fermentation, indentations from the rivets of cask hoops, and is even infused with the sweet aroma of wine that is easily detectable in the unfinished lumber.

Because this lumber is a limited resource that is becoming scarcer every year, we may not be able to offer this species again. We are proud to be the only company with this special stock of redwood. This reclaimed redwood sliding door is certain to be the focal point of any room, and its rare beauty will delight all who see it.

We cut and sand each plank by hand, and can assemble it for you or send it in pieces for a fun DIY barn door project! Planks are pre-cut and slotted, and the door can easily be assembled, finished, and installed in a weekend.

Finishes + Assembly

If DIY isn't your thing, we'll finish and assemble your door - just choose the style you want and select preassembly in the menu above! Our clear finishes are only available if we assemble the door for you. We highly recommend adding a sealing finish to your door to protect it and make sure that it is eligible to be covered by our warranty - more about that here.

Each species of wood we offer boasts its own unique characteristics. Finishing your door with a clear urethane will not only protect it, but enhance the beauty of the wood by bringing out the striking color and detail of the grain.

Redwood Characteristics

This redwood shows variance in color due to the level of staining from exposure to wine. Some planks were near the bottom of the tank and show deep color, while planks on the outside and the top of the tank are more naturally colored. If you choose standard cut, your door will be a warm amber-red tone, while premium cut uses planks that are deep red with purple undertones from direct wine exposure. We have had requests for doors that have a mix of both, and we are happy to work on a custom design like that for you.

We highly recommend adding a clear finish with UV protection to guard your redwood barn door from damage. Clear urethane enhances detail and color, and will protect the door from fading and warping. Sun exposure will fade the wine stain on doors without a finish applied.

Your reclaimed redwood sliding door may look very similar or very different from example photos. Because wood is a natural material, it can vary widely in color tone, grain pattern, and knots. We can't guarantee that your door will look exactly like the photos shown. Photos are intended to illustrate a similar example of what you may receive. This is especially true of reclaimed wood, as it has been weathered and aged and may have different levels of exposure or staining. In reclaimed redwood, pine, and barn wood, it is not uncommon to see rough surfaces, small holes, minor dirt or debris embedded in the wood, or dark marks from nails.

Please note that all barn doors will ship separately from sliding hardware when purchased together. Doors are pictured with hardware for context. Sliding hardware is sold separately, and not included with the purchase of a door. Doors will not be pre-drilled for hardware. If you order a door and a hardware kit, we are unable to ship hardware installed on doors due to the risk of shipping damage.

We designed these doors with interior applications in mind. We don't recommend exterior use, and can't guarantee against warping or damage if you install your door outside.

If you need more than 10 doors, or if your project requires special consideration, please call 1-800-694-5977. We'd be happy to help!
