Reclaimed heart pine, oak and chestnut materials are one of the best investments. The color, character and patina are unique, and the wood has already cured through a century’s worth of seasonal expansion and contraction cycles, so it’s more stable than new wood. New wood is not comparable in quality to old growth wood. The process of reclaiming antique timber is also very labor intensive and the labor and technology needed to rescue and convert the antique wood is profound.
