Reclaimed lumber In our shop now
We currently have first growth douglas fir and pine beams reclaimed from Baltimore vinegar storage tanks. Originally constructed between 1910 and 1920 as tanks to hold mash for the Melville Distillery, theses tanks held vinegar from the 1950’s until recently when they were taken off line as the company moved to fiberglass and stainless steel. During demolition, we removed the iron bands and the dismantled the tanks one stick at a time. We air-dried the lumber in our shop with sticks between the stacks so that it could slowly stabilize. The tight grain of the douglas fir makes this lumber ideal for exterior projects. The distinctive beauty of the wood makes it a great choice for natural finished counter tops. Our local breweries love the story of the wood and the Baltimore connection. Give us a call if you’d like to discuss using this wood for your next project.
