M. Fine Lumber sells reclaimed wood in Brooklyn, NY. Most of their product comes from torn down factories from Philly to New Hampshire. While the majority of customers use the wood for flooring, wainscoting, and poster beams, a number of them are furniture makers. Merritt Fine, the firm’s spokesman, says the interest in reclaimed wood began about six or seven years ago and has grown astronomically since then. He sees the demand increasing even more and thinks that the reclaimed wood industry will make an effort to reduce prices to attract the average consumer.

If you are interested in adding historical value to your projects, M. Fine’s wood may be an option. Some pieces have been procured from factories that made Civil War uniforms and other pieces came from old railroads that lined the northeast.

If you decide to visit the yard and make a purchase, mention this article to Merritt Fine in sales and you’ll get 10% off.
