The first handbook on reclaimed wood, combining useful information, rich history, and design ideas Wood reclaimed from old houses, factories, barns, water tanks, and boardwalks has become a valuable commodity, treasured for the patina that gives witness to its history. Our ancestors built well, using locally sourced lumber that expressed the culture and natural history of their region: oak and pine in the Northeast; hickory and cypress in the South; Douglas fir and redwood in the West. Reclaimed Wood: A Field Guide is the first complete visual handbook to this popular resource, covering history, culture, salvage, sources, contemporary uses (in buildings and furniture), and practical advice.

Klaas Armster and Alan Solomon are partners at Sawkill Lumber Company, a leading Brooklyn-based supplier of reclaimed woods. The son of a mill owner/architect, Armster lives in Guilford, Connecticut. Solomon has spent a life in salvage, starting with a family scrapyard in the Boston area. He was profiled in a New Yorker article in 2008. He lives in Brooklyn. Michel Arnaud's books include Detroit: The Dream Is Now and Design Brooklyn, both from Abrams. He lives in Chatham, New York.
