Weyerhaeuser Co. (www.woodbywy.com), a building material distributor, is now the exclusive distributor of Barnwood Industries (www.barnwoodindustries.com) reclaimed wood in northern California, and anticipates expanding distribution soon to other markets.
Materials include reclaimed beams, timbers, wood flooring, doors, cabinets and millwork from aged barns and other wood structures.
"Builders and architects value reclaimed wood for its distinctive visual character," said Sue Snuggs, product manager for Weyerhaeuser. "It's a way to honor the legacy of the past by reusing materials, while adding the timeless appeal of wood to any home or building. The addition of Barnwood Industries reclaimed wood to Weyerhaeuser's distributed product offerings continues our long tradition of bringing superior building products to market."
Q: We are having a problem with shrinkage. We make furniture, but someone else sells and delivers it. This person claims he did everything correctly, including opening the furniture wrapping (we wrapped the furniture with shrink-wrap and it was fairly well sealed) and letting it acclimate to the house climate. When the customer moved in, they said the furniture looked really wonderful, but within a week, it started to warp, open joints and crack in a few places. We are so careful to keep our plant at 40 percent RH and check the MC of the lumber. This is frustrating! Can you help?
