Sometimes a beautiful product becomes even more beautiful when one understands the hard work and history behind it. Trestlewood's Reclaimed Greenheart is such a product.
It takes a lot of effort to turn raw reclaimed Greenheart lumber into beautiful finished products. Consider some of the early stages of the process captured by the following photos (go to Photoset #5844 to see larger versions of these and other Greenheart-demetaling photos):
Better yet, watch a Trestlewood YouTube video of the Greenheart demetaling process.
To really ratchet up the Greenheart cool factor, let's throw in some history. Who would have thought that Greenheart has ties to Ernest Shackleton and his ill-fated 1914 voyage to Antarctica; the Panama Canal and the Liverpool docks; and a diary entry of the famous English novelist George Orwell?
All of this and more Greenheart information is included in Trestlewood's recent "Reclaimed Greenheart" email update. If you are not already signed up to receive Trestlewood's free email updates (sent no more than once or twice a month), you can sign up easily here.
