Making the Old New Again - Reused and Reborn

Spacebarn is about re-creation, re-use and resourcefulness.

All of the products sold by this workshop have incorporated used materials from some other life. They come from attics, basements, flea markets, antique stores and the dumpster. Additionally, my work as a contract carpenter allows me to salvage many pieces of wood and hardware in the demolition phase of my projects, These materials have a lot of life left, they have stories to tell. Spacebarn tells those stories. I know where every product that goes into my pieces comes from. Everything from the wood to the nails and screws, the glue and the finishes. It has all been procured from reused sources or local businesses, but never ever big box stores. This is important to my philosophy of creation.

Spacebarn is about creating works in a responsible and sustainable way.

Each creation from Spacebarn is an original and unique piece created solely by the owner. Each piece has been looked and worked over many times. With woodworking pieces, a lot of time has been spent sanding and planning the wood – with hand tools as well as power tools – to gain that original feel of the wood that can’t be achieved with large factory planners, table saws and scroll saws.

Spacebarn does commissions and custom pieces, please contact for details.

About Reclaimed Wood:
The wood used in many of Spacebarn's works has been reclaimed or reused from a previous item/purpose. All wood products by Spacebarn have been heavily cleaned and sanded to prevent the occurrence of splinters, however, you should always use caution while handling this piece on the slight chance I may have missed one or two. Also due to the age of the wood, some of it may have come in contact with lead paint, so please err on the side of reason and do not let your kids eat it!
