The Reclaimer

Best Source for Reclaimed Wood, August 2015

Hidden on a residential street in Tarzana is a mother lode of timber: Stacks of walnut slats, Douglas fir beams, and redwood slabs tower toward the sky on a gargantuan outdoor lot. Each piece for sale at The Reclaimer has a story, whether it’s wood salvaged from historic homes or archaeological gems and pieces pulled from L.A. rail lines. Founder Gary Schwirblat is a conservationist at his core and believes that reusing wood doesn’t just look great, it saves another tree from the chain saw.
