Back in 2018 our team was remodeling a sunroom for a Portland shopper. Whilst not all elements of the weighty wooden aesthetic have been reusable, there ended up various big, sturdy beams salvaged by our carpenters. Held in storage until finally a short while ago, we hauled them out this last summer soon after receiving an accepted style and design for a tailor made bench by John Weil at Weil Architecture. Constructed in our woodshop by Carpenter Moses Grubb and concluded by Carpenter Matthew Kamenski, the last piece showcases the eye-catching excellent of the unique fir beams.


“I like performing with this gorgeous aged wooden,” says longtime carpenter Grubb. “It’s exciting to re-use substance to make some thing new that matches back again in the place so well.”

And in shape it does. The flawless execution of the bench’s cleanse and timeless layout not only elevates the upcycled beam alone, but wonderfully compliments the redesigned area it as soon as all over again occupies.
