Reclaimed Tropical Hardwoods at South Street Seaport, NYC


Tropical hardwoods spread throughout South Street Seaport were reclaimed by Sawkill Lumber in the first half of 2014. Ipe, Greenheart and Ekki  – species from South American and West Africa are among the collection. The difficulty in sourcing woods sustainably from the world’s Rainforests add to the special quality of these ultra durable reclaimed hardwoods. Pictured above are the salvage process that stretched through the harsh winter and into the spring – and the first installation of the woods, remilled for a vanity and flooring of a Brooklyn bronwnstone.
