About Us

  • In the 1980’s, Jay Sanders’ Reclaimed Wood Furnishing originated the concept of using antique reclaimed wood from time-warn structures to hand craft furniture. All Jay Sanders’ furniture is handmade in the USA by skilled and experienced artisans and craftsmen, using carefully selected wood salvaged from hundred-year-old weatheredbarns and other similar sources.
  • Jay Sanders’ designs are one-of-a kind due to variations in the old wood itself and the hand-made manufacturing. Each carefully crafted piece features old re-purposed wood with all its imperfections and natural aging over decades, or centuries, kept intact. Historical distresses, such as cracks, nail heads, worm holes, warps and cut-outs, are prized for their beauty and uniqueness. At Jay Sanders’ Reclaimed Wood Furnishings, we pride ourselves in letting the patina speak for itself and the history of the reclaimed wood.
  • Jay Sanders’ artisans build and finish our own designs. Or we can custom make your designs, working with you on how you would like the surfaces to be finished. For nearly 40 years, Jay Sanders’ designs have been used in hotels, restaurants, store displays and elegant residences and featured in numerous shelter magazines including Country Living Magazine, Country Home and many fine stores, including Neiman Marcus and ABC Carpet and Home.

Although we specialize in reclaimed, salvaged, “found” wood up to or well over 200 years old including pine, oak, fir, cypress or hemlock, we also manufacture custom-crafted teak, cypress, cedar newly-milled from sustainable resources, for interior or outdoor hotel use. We cut heavy, harvested-logs and turn them into imaginative shapes. Domestic live-edge tabletops and shelves are also available, made from local fallen or removed trees.

We cannot emphasize enough that one of the beauties of this product is how forgiving it is. With simple maintenance, the pieces will only improve with age. Should a piece be damaged, it can usually be easily repaired and refinished. Please consider us for orders of one to two hundred-fifty units.
