Urban Hardwoods

The Lab has a great fondness for beautiful woodworking. Even better if it involves reclaimed timber!

Urban Hardwoods, based in Seattle, have contacts in the tree-removal business who tip them off when a nice piece of lumber is going to be removed. Urban Hardwoods carefully remove the wood in as large of pieces as possible, mill it, and dry it as you would any timber. After it’s been cured for as much as a year, they use the reclaimed wood to create custom furniture. In addition to using all reclaimed wood, only natural wax finishes are used, with a torching effect applied sometimes to darken the wood.

Urban Hardwoods finish samples are available in the Library.
