Our Materials Have a Stories to Tell

Famous brands rolled deep in the track making each piece unique and interesting. Each a Center Piece and Conversation Piece to be admired and shared. Passed down generation to generation.  There is a legacy and history in railroading. We consider passing that legacy on through our Industrial designs a sacred privilege and are proud of the materials we use - and the historic railroaders who made it possible.  Our unique one-of-a-kind designs are perfect for home and office.   Upscale Furniture capturing the excitement and traditions of days gone by in a modern and very special way

Century Old Reclaimed Railroad Steel

Our steel comes from the depths of the earth - iron ore mined in places like Pittsburg, Pennsylvania and in Birmingham, Alabama. Proud hands have rolled the date of manufacture and batch numbers into each rail during what became the dawn of quality control. This metal speaks of such a quality that names like Carnegie, remain forever immortalized in the webbing of the rail.

Our Timbers are Just as Impressive

Recylced Hardwood Timbers - never used or treated with chemicals

Each timber is carved from the heart of the tree – the oldest part where the rings radiate away from the center like a drop of water in a pond. And all hardwoods aspire to becoming a crosstie, be they oak, hickory, beech, maple, cherry, or elm.

But Ours Are Truly Special

Untouched by chemicals, we use culled cross ties – wood that won't pass grade due to an imperfection like a beautifully burled knot or awe-inspiring cross grain. While those features make those ties less than ideal for running 180,000 pound rail cars over them, they add great character to our pieces. So we save them from a lesser fate, and give them new life in the service of our clients.
