NORTHAMPTION, MA -Wright Architectural Millwork reports it recently completed a reclaimed wood project in Waltham, MA, near Boston, for the Educational Development Center World Headquarters.
"After I seeing the Custom Woodworking Business cover story on reclaimed wood at the coffee house (January 2012 Custom Woodworking Business)," says Christopher Buell, production manager, "I can back up this trend in the millwork business as of late."
Buell says Wright Architectural Millwork Waltham project used reclaimed wood made from beams from the Napa Pipe company, Napa, CA. "It was milled down to a tongue-and-groove flooring type product and applied to walls and a bench application.
The general contractor for the project is Commodore Builders; Buell was project manager for Wright Architectural Millwork; and material was installed by Richwood, Inc.
"We purchased, supplied and installed approximately 2,000 sq. ft. of ¾” thickness x 5” face tongue and groove reclaimed Douglas fir," says Buell. "This has an as-is face, with an unmilled and weathered patina finish." Buell provided a link to the lumber from Terra Mai in Medford, OR
