Little About Us

For many years the old barn withstood the test of time. Generations had worked and played in its shelter, but all those years of wind and weather had taken their toll. The siding was cracked and weathered, and the roof had sprung more than a few leaks.

Finally, the decision was made to replace it, but what to do with all the old lumber and tin? The old fence definitely needed to be replaced and a few of the outbuildings needed new roofs. Surely all these old boards and roofing needn’t to go the local landfill!

Or how about the material that a company that replaces old privacy fences and decks takes apart; is that all going to end up in the dumpster?

In 1999, a young craftsman was building small furniture and other crafts in his spare time when he asked a neighbor if he could use the lumber from a shed he had just torn down. Using those reclaimed boards, he created the first few styles of what would become a full product line of birdhouses, planters, benches, and more, all made with reclaimed wood.

Today, Summitville Woodworking provides a drop-off site for fence and decking companies, as well as individuals in the community to take their unwanted rustic tin and lumber. Then their crew of workers and sub-workers crafts unique, quality, and handmade items to brighten up your backyard and attract and feed the birds while decorating your front porch or deck.

Since these items are made from reclaimed materials, each individual piece is unique. Expect slight variations!
