 Reclaimed Wood and Timber

We deal directly with several folks who recycle barns and harvest reclaimed lumber, post and beams as well as salvaged trees. This allows us to find just the right slab, species or characteristics for your project. We source slabs to suit your needs upon request but usually have a small inventory at hand directly. Go see our sister website devoted to Reclaimed Wood Furniturefor more information.

Exotic Woods

While a little more challenging to find sometimes, exotic woods of all kinds and species are available upon request. Please be patient when placing an order or requesting availability as it usually takes a couple business days to hear back from our suppliers regarding their current stock. Such amazing colors, grains and character make it worth the wait…:)


Please call us at 705.441.0295 with questions or buying tips and we’ll do our best to help out email us at redridgemillwork@gmail.com .
