Reclaimed pine wall unit
Here is an example of reclaimed pine as a contemporary material for fine furniture. This wood was harvested from the structure of an old warehouse in New York. It is old-growth southern yellow pine, which is much harder, richer in color, and has a tighter grain structure than today’s pine. While lots of structural flaws in the material were eliminated or repaired, the wood retains character marks from its previous use, including nail holes, drill holes for electrical wires, and filled cracks. The doors have clean integral handles, invisible Soss hinges, and nearly silent rare-earth magnet catches. Design by Harlan Gruber, with my input on the details.
