Lumber is sold in this manner. Example: 1″x6″x2′ = 1″ thick, 6″ wide and 2´ long = 1 bd. Ft.
All Reclaimed lumber is air dried.
Rough lumber is measured on the 1/4″ system. 4/4=1″ – 5/4=1-1/4″ – 8/4=2″. Most 4/4 is cut 1-1/8″ and will plane to 3/4″ or 13/16.

Most lumber we sell is in the rough. Generally it is better to plane and size wood just before it is put in the project. We will surface two sides for $1.00 bd. ft. on advance notice only. Wide belt sanding with a 120 Grit Belt is also available on two sides for $1.00 bd. ft. Minimum fees are $10.
|STRAIGHT LINE RIP:
Lumber is tallied before ripping planing resawing etc. Loss averages 10% to 15%. Price is $1.00 bd. ft. $10.00 minimum.
|WIDTHS AND LENGTHS:
Our lumber comes in random widths and lengths. (example) It usually ranges 4″ – 12″ wide and 8´ – 12´ long. Reclaimed lumber is not cut exact.
Our lumber is upcycled, repurposed or reclaimed wood. Grade is in the eye of the buyer.
We have no minimum purchase.

Used Pallet Deck Boards to Useful Wooden Boards
Used Pallet Lumber
Now it may wind up as the floor of an exotic bar or in a Man Cave.
Often a damaged pallet goes to a landfill.
Now at Atlas Wood Products of Phila, Pa, 215-843-0313 we make unique décor flooring, wine boxes, wooden display crates and small wine cheese boxes from used pallet wood.
Some said to us “wow ugly wood into beautiful items” such as small wooden gift boxes, wooden bird house, rustic wooden benches and primitive wood tables.
Atlas Wood Products has proved many conservation effort do work to benefit all.
For one all of our left over cut offs now go to mulch manufactures.
Used wooden skids can be recycled, repaired or disassembled to recover lumber that is used to make other wood products.
In order to economically convert used pallet lumber into other wood products we have a pallet dismantler.
We knew that recycling pallets was a costly venture, but so much of these beautiful woods were being buried in landfills.
We found that we could capture good wood from used old wooden crates and convert it other wood products. We just needed a way to make it profitable.
One of the biggest problems had to do with equipment to remanufacture used wood skid lumber, so, we re-designed our own equipment from other woodworking equipment.
We always thought we needed to produce wood product from all the same species.
Doing it this way was expensive, with separating the woods and all.
So, we use all mixed species in our reclaimed wood products.
It is very well received, the requests we get was to go to different spices, weather silvered wood or darker water stains, so now the differences in the woods spices are visible.
Now the holes the nails were perceived as bad, now it giving the wood a rustic look, some people want the nails sanded and left in the wood board.
We just sold wood to a historic firehouse renovation where the guy in charge wanted to use our type of used reclaimed wood because it was more realistic to the period.
He asked to use recycled wood board with the bright nails and holes because it looked more authentic. So we simply varnished the finished over the nails.
We set up a small custom area in our shop, with plans it will run full time, allowing us to ease into reclaimed wood to upscale wood products projects.
There are some not many significant differences between the recycled wood new wood except for nails. For instance, our wood flooring made of recycled pallet has nails and is shorter than traditional lengths.
We’ll have a couple of different widths and lengths, and more as our ideas grow.
We learn to do what the market needs, we’ll develop what kind of sells.
But initially we starting walking in the dark
Recycling wood crates into upcycled wood has many conservation benefits.
We think it’s a worthwhile project because of the recycling aspect.
We’re trying to keep cost as low as we can.
It seems, mixed spices of lumber and the character of the wood will generate a sufficient premium to help justify all the handling.
When people know the background of the wood, know the story, now that’s where their purchasing enthusiasm comes in.
