Q: I love this reclaimed dining room table from CB2, made from reclaimed unfinished wood from old rail ties, but am worried about the safety of such a product. Would this kind of wood have been processed or subject to heavy chemicals or other hazardous materials in its past usage? In general, any tips on safety and health when dealing with reclaimed wood?
