Reclaimed Pine: The 1.5" thick old-growth pine is salvaged from demolition homes throughout the Midwest. The wood is full of cool characteristics, such as nail holes, plaster lines, and color variations. We cannot guarantee that the bench you receive will look identical to the one in the product shot. Although, all surface imperfections are natural and tell a story that spans over a hundred years, making each piece unique and truly one of a kind. The raw and natural character of the reclaimed Pine is perfect for rustic or modern farmhouse styled homes. We offer two different options for finishing reclaimed pine: Natural and Surfaced Plane.
- Natural Finish: We simply sand and finish. This produces a darker overall color and texture with a slightly uneven surface.
- Surface planed: We take off the top and bottom layer with a surface planer, making a more even surface and lighter color variation.

Completely designed and built in the USA with materials guaranteed to last a lifetime. The bench legs are powder coated and custom fabricated from a 2" wide square tube American steel channel. We proudly use American steel and support American manufacturing. American steel is consistent, stronger, environmentally friendly, and ethically produced, unlike Chinese steel (leading competitor). The solid steel bench legs are hand-welded and bolted to wood bench top, making for an extremely sturdy design that is easy to assemble.
Steel Powder Coat Finishes:
Powder coating is a dry finishing process. The coating is applied electrostatically and then cured under heat to produce long molecular chains. These molecular chains are very resistant to breakdown. Therefore, powder-coated products are more resistant to scratches, chipping, abrasions, corrosion, fading, and other wear issues. This method is more sustainable than conventional paint because it takes place in a sealed environment. The unused powder is collected and reused. Leaving little to no air pollution and waste… It’s tougher, last longer, and is environmentally advantageous.
These steel bench legs are powder coated with black finish.
We finish all our wood with Agualente® PLUS Clear, which is a commercial-grade water borne coating pro-rated for interior wood surfaces. This finish has low VOC and it is GREENGUARD Certified, meaning it is non-toxic and produces no hazardous off-gassing during cure. This finish is resistant to yellowing and stains, making it ideal for household furniture.

AMERICAN STEEL VS. CHINESE: "American steel manufacturers are held to a set of standards created by organizations like The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) that determine the appropriate chemistry mixes for different types of steel. These standards are intended as a safety precaution to ensure the right quality of the metal is being used for the right product. Companies in China are producing steel at a faster rate, flooding the market and dropping prices. It is produced at a rapid rate and it is not held up to the same quality standards as American steel. American steel requires some rigorous testing before it can be sold, but Chinese companies are not required to conduct these tests. These tests help keep buildings standing after a hurricane or earthquake and help prevent the steel from becoming brittle and beginning to crack when it is being welded. In addition to testing, American companies are under more strict guidelines for the environment. Carbon emissions in China are two times greater than they are in America for the same amount of steel. Steelmakers in America spend 80 percent more per ton of steel to reduce the pollution levels to both air and water than a steelmaker in China." -gensteel.com
OLD GROWTH PINE HISTORY:
Made from solid old-growth pine, the foundation beams are salvaged from demolition homes throughout St. Louis and Chicago. These beams are over 100 years old and have tons of character and even more history to them. The term "old growth" refers to the origins of the tree that the beam was produced from. These trees grew naturally for over 200 years, during a time before massive deforestation. Since they grew in a dense forest, they received less light and grew more slowly than newer lumber. This slower growth allowed for a tighter ring pattern and denser wood. An estimated 90% of these forests were cleared in the United States by the early 20th century. Today, "old growth" is strictly available through architectural salvage since remaining trees are protected by the US Forest Service.
RECLAIMED PINE DISCLAIMER: There WILL be imperfections. Rustic and reclaimed furniture embraces the beauty of the natural and celebrates its flaws. This is solid wood furniture that exudes warmth with an organic character that gives off a relaxing vibe as it provides a connection to the past. If smooth, shiny and seamless are what you’re after, then rustic and reclaimed may not be for you.
We cannot guarantee that the beam you receive will look identical to the one in the product shot.
