FARMINGTON, NY - For over 20 years NEWwoodworks has specialized in handcrafted cabinetry, furniture, stairs, doors, and other custom designed interior furnishings. NEWwoodworks commonly crafts with reclaimed wood, often using near extinct species such as Chestnut and Elm. Adding to its inventory of reclaimed woods NEWwoodworks now has FSC certified reclaimed Teak available for all fine woodworking projects.

“We are extremely excited to utilize with this material for exterior and interior applications such as furniture, countertops, signs, doors, stairs, railings, and other custom items,” explained Rob D'Alessandro, manager of NEWwoodworks. “Teak's beauty, durability and exceptional weathering capabilities offer many additional options for the execution of work within our reclaimed niche.”

Teak is best known for its strength, resiliency, color, and clean grain. Reclaimed, old growth Teak has abundant heartwood and natural oils, which protect the wood giving it unmatched durability and beauty as well as a long life as furniture, stairs, cabinetry and more.

Sources of Teak have not always been environmentally friendly and in fact were often the source of conflict and deforestation. Pioneer Millworks is excited to offer NEWwoodworks and their clients an FSC reclaimed Teak option from a source which meets their demands for ethical treatment of employees and the environment. The production facility and reclamation processes adhere to the strictest international standards for processing and manufacturing while being healthy for the planet and for people.

The inherent characteristics of Teak have created a growing demand for woodworking products crafted with the Indonesian hardwood. NEWwoodworks will begin fulfilling Teak project requests from designers, architects, builders, and homeowners alike within the next month.
