As you have now heard I will be working with my brother while living in NAfrica in his reclaimed wood business. His business is based in Lexington, Ky. I have been able to help him part time since we’ve been back. It has been so very cool for us both.
The business used to be called Reclaimed American Hardwood. He has, up to this point, been acquiring wood from this local region… From old barns and thoroughbred horse farm fences.
But as of the last couple of month the business has begun to go global. We have begun getting wood from overseas, and the global market looks bright. This is where my job description is beginning to take shape. Europe has lots of old wood, Southeast Asia and even North Africa. So my brother, Nathan, has recently renamed the company Old World Timber, and he believes I can help him.
There are way too many cool things to go through about this opportunity in one post, so I will stop now with a few pictures. We will come back to this opportunity more than a few times as we go…
Check out the website HERE and a few pics below.
The wood used to tie the gondolas in Venice are now ours.
Old wine presses and barns from Eastern Europe are now ours.
Mantle beams, slabs, barn doors and wood from old barns and fence plank from the beautiful Bluegrass state our also ours.
These few pics are just to wet your whistle 🙂 and to help you more fully understand what we will be helping with as we continue to live in NAfrica. We hope to start gathering olive wood from our country over there, and we hope to export wood from many other places.
We will keep you updated.
