Timeline: A Modern Alternative to Reclaimed Wood

We love the look of reclaimed wood, but we often don't love the price, the lead paint, or the process of de-nailing or fumigating a piece of old lumber. That's where Timeline comes in: a modern alternative to reclaimed wood.

The Downtown LA-based company creates new and sustainable lumber with the look and feel of vintage planks — peeling paint and all. This "new old wood" comes in 5 plank widths, 2 plank lengths, 3 edge options, 11 hues, and a mix of interesting textures.

Even though it may not sound very green to buy new wood when you can simply head down to your local salvage yard, the benefit of having an unlimited supply of wood for your project (as well as replacement wood down the line) is a major selling point. Not to mention, the materials come from FSC-certified mills and use water-based and low-VOC finishes.
