Real Wood Products


Our unique manufacturing process doesn’t create a painted-on faux finish. Instead, our Better than Barnwood line is designed to mimic both the look and behavior of actual reclaimed wood. If our barnwood gets wet, it darkens. As it dries, it lightens. With enough exposure to weather and natural elements, each board will age gracefully with its own character and charm, all while retaining the structural integrity of newly milled cedar.

Our products are not imitations of the real thing. Every piece of cedar or oak that we handle is treated as a work of art. Instead of simply mimicking the subtleties of aged and rustic wood, we carefully recreate it using non-traditional means. We do not deal in thin veneer planks or faux printed patterns. Instead, we produce solid wood products intended to last a lifetime.

Sustainable & Timeless

We believe the best way to honor the past is to preserve it. The wood we use is a sustainable resource, sourced locally in the Pacific Northwest, and specifically planted with the intent of being harvested via responsible methods. When practiced properly, responsible forestry techniques represent one of the greatest tools in the fight to preserve our old-growth forests on a grand scale.

While some of our competitors source their lumber from overseas markets in search of a cheap solution, we believe that such behavior can contribute to irresponsible deforestation on an immense scale. Imported wood products also carry the potential for dangerous contaminants due to unknown variables in the supply chain. Instead, we’ve chosen to uphold our dedication to supporting our local economies by sourcing our cedar solely from reputable domestic suppliers.
