Old timbers that are reclaimed and then recycled, have a fantastic depth of character that is impossible to reproduce. Obviously the colour varies as well as the amount of distress the timber has been subject to. Supply at times can be hard and is definitely limited, however the rewards of finding a species no longer available and putting them to a new use is wonderful.
