Old Wood Made New Again
Ed Lanham always had a fascination with old barns, and thought it unfortunate that the wood from these old structures was being burnt or thrown away.
After researching the history of early building techniques, Ed discovered that most barns were made with American chestnut, a very hearty and robust tree that was all but wiped out by a blight near the turn of the century. Lanham decided to take the old wood and make it new again.
The results are beautiful furniture made from rare, beautiful wood that has been given new life. Ed makes everything from bookcases, gun cabinets, fly tying tables, and china cabinets.
