Reclaimed Beam Bench | Upcycled Furniture


Upcycling is all the rage these times, and with fantastic rationale. Making use of elements that would previously have been regarded as waste goods to create new merchandise is both equally cost-effective and environmentally pleasant. All across the planet, men and women are discovering one of a kind and artistic ways to transform outdated things into new, handy, and usually visually amazing pieces. Whether or not it is glass yogurt cups becoming a tray of seed planters or an outdated coffee tin reworked into a good lighting fixture, this new pattern allows people uncover the natural beauty in items that would or else be clogging landfills.


Back again in 2018 our workforce was reworking a sunroom for a Portland shopper. While not all things of the major wood aesthetic were being reusable, there ended up numerous substantial, sturdy beams salvaged by our carpenters. Stored in storage until finally not long ago, we hauled them out this last summer after getting an authorised layout for a tailor made bench by John Weil at Weil Architecture. Constructed in our woodshop by Carpenter Moses Grubb and completed by Carpenter Matthew Kamenski, the closing piece showcases the eye-catching excellent of the primary fir beams.


“I like performing with this beautiful aged wooden,” claims longtime carpenter Grubb. “It’s thrilling to re-use material to make a thing contemporary that fits again in the space so perfectly.”

And in good shape it does. The flawless execution of the bench’s clear and timeless style and design not only elevates the upcycled beam itself, but wonderfully compliments the redesigned house it after all over again occupies.
