Bar Built From Reclaimed Cedar Decking and Birch Logs

November 03, 2017 1 Comment

bar made from reclaimed wood

Dave Huston, an Old Grain Co. partner, recently built this reclaimed wood bar from old cedar decking and a fresh cut birch tree. The black granite bar top was reclaimed from a kitchen remodeling project. The black granite perfectly accents the red and gray cedar decking and white birch trees. 

Dave cut the birch trees from a friends property. He used a dado blade to cut the channel in each log that allowed him to slide in the cedar boards.

The bar was built as a wedding gift for his cousin and it was used at their reception to host more than 100 people.

What a beautiful bar. I built a similar bar last year with red barn wood but instead of using the birch trees, I used 8 × 8 posts pulled from an old barn on my parents farm. I like the idea of using birch trees, it gives it a local Minnesota feel.

Reclaimed wood is unique, beautiful and fun to work with. Sometimes it can be challenging for our customers to imagine the possibilities when they see the rustic wood that we sell. We have a great team who can provide you with guidance to complete the project yourself or if you like we can build it for you. Mantles, barn doors, wall covering, frames, shelves, stair treads. It's all possible using the reclaimed wood that we sell. 

We would like to share some of the amazing projects that are possible using reclaimed lumber.

We covered an old brick fireplace in the basement bedroom of this Minnetonka home with reclaimed barnwood to give it a more modern and updated look. For this project we took 100+ year old oak 2 x 5's and cut them in half which gave us 1 x 5's.

The grain and colors really pop in this live edge reclaimed wood shelf that was installed last week. The price of this board was less than $150.
