Reclaimed wood is just that – reclaimed. Reclaimed also means recycled or to rescue from an undesirable state. In other words, this is used lumber that we have chosen to be worthy of reviving and putting back into use and not occupy precious landfill space. It is important to understand that when dealing with this type of material there will be obvious signs of serving a previous purpose. Most of these timbers served as structural members or other components of old buildings and barns and will have signs of such responsibilities. These signs include nails and nail holes, bolts and bolt holes, worm holes, mortise pockets, tenon spots, plugs, cracks, checks, splits, twisting, warping, bowing, color variations, texture variations, imperfect sizes and dimensions, bugs, dirt and other aspects inherent to recycled lumber products. Atlanta Specialty Woods uses strict discretion when searching for materials capable of reuse. We attempt to minimize the most severe defects to bring you the most charming and sound materials possible. The fumigation process is used to prevent any wood destroying organisms from surviving in our hand hewn timbers.

Thank you for the time you took to show me around…your staff is so nice and has such a warm and welcoming attitude….I was very impressed with your store and warehouse. I will be by tomorrow to pick that pecky cypress up and I have

We found Atlanta Specialty Wood through a friend. If you are in search of unique wood, this is the place. We were helped by Ryan, the shop manager, and Christian, the owner. Both were very helpful. We highly recommend ASW for mantles and specialty woods.

Our search for beautiful beams ended by finding Atlanta Specialty Woods. We selected maple reclaimed beams and also a beautiful heart of pine mantel piece. They compliment each other so well. Christian, the owner, helped with the entire process and Matt explained how the wood would be cleaned, brushed and waxed to our satisfaction to bring out the beauty of the wood. Everything is completed and we couldn’t be happier. They have a wonderful selection of fine wood.

Good variety of wood in all types and shapes. Prices were competitive. They spent a lot of time helping me choose and answered many questions including some I hadn’t thought of!
For the stain, they had a lab area where he would apply a sample to a similar wood for free so you know exactly what you are getting.
My fireplace mantle was completed on time and they were very helpful in arranging everything. Would highly recommend to others.

I was looking for some reclaimed wood for a home project. I called several places before I found Atlanta Specialty Woods. They had exactly what I needed for my project. The owner took me around the entire yard to ensure I found the perfect fit for my needs. He was very professional, knowledgeable and friendly! He asked the right questions to make sure I considered all the possibilities. The staff was very responsive and courteous. I would highly, highly recommend Atlanta Specialty Woods for any unique project that requires any type of specialty wood. I’ll be back!
