meet the team

Giving new life to old wood takes a lot of tenacity and creative energy. If you think we sell wood flooring and tables, you are only partly right. A big part of our job is to discover new and creative ways to use wood and to tell our story to connect with and inspire others to use reclaimed wood products. We’re a close-knit group who loves what we do, we work hard, and we have a lot of fun while we do it. We’re smart, honest, genuine, a little (ok, A LOT) wacky and wholly committed to growing our company sustainably in every sense of the word.
