Reclaimed Doug Fir Ceiling

Old Patina Wire Brushed Douglas Fir Beams and Ceiling Paneling Reclaimed from Port of Oakland

Dear Friends and Customers,

As we leave 2015 behind us, our company would like to thank you for your continued patronage and support!  As you know, we are a small business, and we pride ourselves on doing exceptional work that helps our local economy and contributes positively to the ecologies of the forests of California and the world.

Events in the past couple of years have led to the arrival of two enormous sources of inventory at the Crossroads Recycled Lumber yard.  The first, and most exciting, is the arrival of timbers and decking from the Port of Oakland, the former Oakland Army Depot.

The quality and historic value of this wood cannot be overstated.  This lumber expands our current inventory by half!  It includes several hundred thousand board feet of Douglas Fir 2X6 and 2X8 Tongue & Groove Decking, plus beams at 4X12X22′, 6X6, 6X12, and 10X22 at 31′ and 32′ in length. Negotiations for procuring this wood took several years and a heck of a lot of work from our owner, Marc, who monitored parts of this project since 2007 and worked with the demolition crew during part of the tear down.  Watch’s video about the beginning of the project!
