Armster Reclaimed Wood Collections – Historical, Chronological, Inspirational

Wood Collections help us and help customers to organize all (or most) of the wood we stock.

Pre-1850 Homes

This is one of our oldest wood collections with colonial lumber from buildings of two centuries ago, and more.

Footworn flooring is especially sought after because it is quite wide and wonderfully marked with daily use.

1900-1930 River Wood

Trees fell, logs sank and structures were built along American rivers. The effects of time and water minerals tinted the wood in sometimes magical ways. Pier wood, Sinker Pine, Dam Timbers and more are here.
