We really enjoyed seeing Jason's Weekend Project with Pittsburgh's Urban Tree Forge. Turns out, there's a similar group in Ontario giving new life to urban wood salvage. They're called Urban Tree and their online shop offers items crafted from salvage...
Urban Tree Salvage salvages trees that would otherwise go to waste and makes them into beautiful furnishings for the home.
Check out their shop for everything from large furniture pieces like bed frames to smaller pieces like wine racks. We're liking their serving platters. With their rough bark edges, they would bring a little touch of nature into the home.
If you'd rather D.I.Y., Urban Tree Salvage also sells lumber and rough wood planks (like the ones at right) that are ready for your creative touch.
