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.
