Creating New Life from Salvaged Old Growth Timbers

Wood Merchant sponsored by STIHL



The Wood Merchant specializes in creating custom one-of-a-kind furnishings from salvaged timbers.  Many of these timbers are considered to be “old-growth”, 150 years and older, with diameters of 5 feet and larger. 

The rapid growth of commercial developments, housing and new roads in the area have led to the demise of many trees that are rich in history.  These trees would not be considered “prime” due to the scars left by a life time of lightening, ice storms, wind, forest fires, floods and droughts, as well as, other perils that have taken the lives of many weaker trees.

Over the past 18 years the Wood Merchant has been saving these historically rich trees and giving them “new life” in the form of custom furnishings including coffee tables, end tables, desks, dining tables, bars, bistro tables, beds, dressers, entertainment centers, armoires, church furnishings, architectural accents and a variety of decorative accents and accessories.

We take what “Mother Nature” gives us and make it into something beautiful and functional for the home or office.  We are at the whim of “Mother Nature” for what we create.  She is mostly responsible for the results.  Many of these old trees can still tell stories.
