Every tree tells a story, especially in New York CityComments (0)
Brooklyn, NY isn’t where you’d expect to find a major lumber mill, chock full of giant logs and heavy equipment, including a saw capable of cutting logs nearly eight feet in diameter. But Dan Richfield and Roger Benton –co-owners of RE-CO BKLYN—are having surprising success in harvesting the urban forest that surrounds them.
Magnificent magnolia. These beautiful, live-edge boards came from an old magnolia tree harvested from the urban forest.
There’s more. Today RE-CO BKLYN has become a major source for large, live-edge slabs that they mill and kiln-dry on site. They’ve also begun to offer a limited supply of specialty dimension lumber milled from their trees. If you want to see some inspiring examples of slab furniture, check out their website (www.recobklyn.com) or visit their showroom. Yes, they also design and build furniture from the unique lumber they’re harvesting.
