We love the patina of a well-worn plank; however, sourcing reclaimed wood for large projects can sometimes be a challenge, especially if you're looking for a uniform look and feel. Matt Stroud, who ran a furniture building and restoration shop for many years, and Shelby Keyser spotted this need; they pooled their talents to form TImeline Surface Materials, based in downtown L.A. The duo produces prefinished lumber using sustainable wood that is hand-chiseled and finished with multiple water-based UV coats to give color, depth, and texture. For more information, go to TImeline Surface Materials.
