“Ever wonder why he folds suddenly when he is forty-five, like a tree we find toppled in the yard after a night of strong winds. We go over to have a look and find that its roots hadn’t sunk down deep enough into the earth, or perhaps it was rotten on the inside, weakened by disease or drought. Such are the insides of unfinished Men.” ~ John Eldredge


I grew up working with wood under my father’s supervision. He was a home builder for many years and I learned on the job. Eventually I went off to school and took a job in a different career path. After a 15 year semi desk type job life, I am ready for a change. I created Southern Reclaimed Wood Co. so that I could devote more of my energies to something I have always felt passionate about since I was very young. I’ve been thrilled by the clients and friends who appreciate the approach to simplicity, as well as my commitment to community and the environment.

Local Connections

People who see our products are often surprised that much of our most attractive wood comes – not from faraway places – but right from our own “urban forest.” We also source from family farms and small vendors across the country that share our passion for beautiful wood, and our dedication to sustainability. In addition we use antique reclaimed wood, which not only is a sustainable resource, but has a wonderful character all its’ own.

When it comes to wood working, furniture and/or cabinetry, there is no single standard to assure a product is “green” or is made in a sustainable fashion. In fact, there are many, often conflicting, aspects that may impact whether the production of a product has a negative impact on our environment. At this point we source all our wood within a 100 mile radius. 90% of it comes from no further than my drive to work and back each day. If that is not local then I am not sure what is.

Reclaimed Wood

By re-purposing wood, we reduce the need for new tree harvesting. This also often diverts “waste” from landfills. We are always looking for wood that seems is still useful or nearly at the end of life but may still have some left in it. I receive wood from people whenever I can put it to some good use.
