JCG Carpentry values the quality and character of reclaimed wood. The quality of new, second growth lumber cannot match the quality of old growth lumber. The distressed look that reclaimed wood possesses is an added value feature used to enhance the look of woodworking projects from mantels to doors and trim and even flooring. Sometimes opportunities present themselves to source materials for future projects. A great deal of labour goes into the deconstruction process as can be seen in these photos of our recent barn demolition in Southern Ontario. JCG Carpentry is proud to offer these hand sourced, reclaimed materials to clients for their projects.
