Learn about the salvage process from start to finish! This is an excellent, informative mini-documentary about the deconstruction process, following the disassembly of the Port of Oakland, CA. Thank you StopWaste.org, for all of the work you do to Stop Waste!
Crossroads Recycled Lumber is featured from 3:25-5:33.
“Our clients are pretty conscientious about where their material comes from. They like the idea of recycled stuff. We as carpenters like to use [reclaimed wood] because you can’t find this tight grain, old growth stuff anymore. It’s already dry, and it’s a lot more fun to work with, a lot more stable.”
-Pete Crandall, Crossroads Recycled Lumber customer
