In Use since the early 1970’s, Michelin has used American Hardwoods for racking and shipping their tires. This oak and eastern hardwood has developed a look that is coveted in the reclaimed world. The material has been utilized to warehouse and safeguard countless tires over the years, evident by the rich character and worn patina. As wood is an excellent carbon sink, Michelin has decided reclamation of this lumber is the only socially responsible way of handling this lumber.

This decision has created a great opportunity for this wood to be utilized by architects and designers in build-green projects.

Michelin Reclaimed Flooring Specifications


Solid Wood Flooring 5/8 X 5 X (18” to 72”)

Available in White Oak, Red Oak and Mixed Hardwood, this material has rich character and a patina that makes reclaimed wood so attractive. The consistent 5” widths and up to 6’ lengths will create a great look when used as a flooring or wall cladding. A mixture of both soft and dark brown color tones will create a beautiful natural blend.

We will make the flooring & paneling available in un-finished, as well as finished with one of our line finishes formulated to highlight the character of this “Once in a Lifetime Floor or Paneling”


Sustainability / Longevity:

The agreement in place will extend over a 3-year period making available over 3 million sq. ft of material. This will ensure the same material and look can be duplicated on projects well into the future


"Why reclaimed wood is good for the environment"

On average, wood contains about 50 percent elemental carbon by dry weight of wood. If the wood decays or burns, the solid carbon in the wood is released again to the atmosphere as CO2 gas. Provided the carbon is ‘‘locked-up’’ in a product, the carbon is ‘‘sequestered’’ as a solid and does not contribute to climate warming through the atmospheric greenhouse effect. By reclaiming, we can extend the useful life of the wood and “sequester” the CO2 gas producing carbon for an additional 20-50 years. In addition, no new trees were cut to produce the reclaimed product, and the carbon retained in storage in the reclaimed product is also being replaced by regrowth in a sustainably managed forest.

New White Oak Hand-Hewn Timbers & Skins, A great addition to the Reclaimed side.

Hand-Hewn
by David Yingst

The look of reclaimed barn beams with the benefits of being a new timber. We are excited to introduce our new white oak hand-hewn timbers and skins. These are all hewed by hand ensuring the same technique used of past generations.

The white oak beams are naturally aged giving the them a weathered patina like the 100 year old beams everyone has grown to love.

However, these beams have no pockets and are a lot straighter making them an excellent choice for a variety of applications or projects. The strength of these white oak timbers is unmatched as well and you also have the added flexibility of how you position them.

We have a good inventory on our new white oak hand-hewn beams. In stock smaller sizes are 6×8, 8×8, & 8×10 with lengths ranging from 16′ to 24′, and the larger dimensions are 10×10, 10×12, 12×12, & 12×14 with lengths 16′ to 32′ on these larger sizes.

We can take custom orders and sizes which carry a 10 to 12 week lead time and different pricing. The patina can vary from a light brown to a weathered grey depending on their aging life. However, In most cases we have enough of these on hand to ensure your entire order of timbers has a similar patina.

We are excited about the possibilities with this new product line and look forward to working with you!
