old growth douglas fir – gym bleachers
We reclaim and manufacture locally on the West Coast, so we see all sorts of amazing douglas fir while we are in the field. Abandoned warehouses, decrepit docks, even creaky old gymnasiums get our creative juices flowing because they’re full of wooden treasures. We partner with several construction companies to make sure that wood from decommissioned buildings gets a new life in one of our products.
Reclaimed from gymnasiums being renovated, this wonderful wood is literally in a class by itself. Even when these bleachers were installed they were special, as it required the highest grade of exclusively old growth lumber to meet the structural demands and long lengths of bleachers. You simply will not find clear fir with such tight grain fir anywhere else and new lumber cannot begin to compare! This material comes with random bolt holes hinting at its past life…you can leave them as-is or we can fill them with matching wood dowels. It can be milled for a clean look or for something really different use the original face, complete with seat numbers and angst filled-teen graffiti (you have been warned!)
