Posted: July 16, 2012 by cwrutherford in Products

Check out these awesome cutting boards!!

These are super-durable end-grain butcher-block cutting boards made from reclaimed wood from Detroit area homes. Each cutting board is stamped with a project number, carrying the history of the wood to its new life. The beauty and color variation in this old growth lumber is just amazing – you can see for yourself in the pictures! Order the size shown in the pictures, 14″ wide x 13″ deep x 2″ thick, or ask for a custom piece in and size you desire. We also sell unfinished slabs and custom orders, just send us a note, and we’ll price it out. End grain cutting boards are the best, most durable, and sought after cutting boards that you can find. Cutting boards are seasoned with several coats of mineral oil. Every board is different and unique, so come visit us at the warehouse to pick one out.

Planter Box at HFCC auction

Posted: May 7, 2012 by cwrutherford in Events, News and Updates, Products

The first planter box off of the Reclaim Detroit assembly line went to HFCC as part of a scholarship auction. Entitled “The Detroit Experience,” the planter box was jam-packed full of Detroit’s finest goodies, activities and much more.

You have to see this planter box in person to appreciate how great it looks. The planter box is huge; it’s a full two feet wide by two feet deep, by two feet tall.  The beauty of the reclaimed wood is something that you just can’t get anywhere else. A pair of these unique gems would really increase your curb appeal or liven up the front of your business.

Don’t forget to sign-up for the workshop to make your own for only $50.00. Not interested in making your own? You can buy a completed planter box, clear-coated and ready for exterior use, for $125.00.

What do you get when you cross a historic preservationist with a camera and reclaimed wood? No, not a crime scene set in an old building, but some innovative furniture expertly photographed and showcased in hand crafted reclaimed wood frames. Genius. Sam Constantine, a graduate student in historic preservation atEasternMichiganUniversity, has a passion for preserving history from the study of saving buildings from our past to photographing what’s left. In August, 2011, Constantine and fellow woodworker, Chris Behm, launched the End Grain Wood Company: www.facebook.com/TheEndGrainWoodworkingCo . He began making picture frames as a way to showcase his photography and quickly grew to crafting lamps, bookshelves, and coat racks, all of reclaimed materials. As the winner of the Detroit ReNailed People’s Choice Award in February, 2012 for his innovative bookshelf, his work is on display at Socratea at 71 Garfield. Check out the pieces at the tea shop or contact info@renailed.org to make a purchase or set up an appointment for custom work.
