Crossroads Featured in “The Deconstruction of Building 802” Video

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

  1. […] 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 StopWaste.org’s video about the beginning of the project!
