Reclaimed Panels from Old Russian Crates

This is a new product by Viridian Reclaimed Wood called Siberian Spruce.  It’s a mixture of pine and spruce from Russian shipping crates that have been milled into paneling, according to the company’s co-founder Joe Mitchoff.  Before Viridian found the wood, it was being discarded or burned, but Viridian came up with a way to re-use the pine and spruce as an input for this beautiful, new material.  The reclaimed wood is FSC-certified and may contribute toward several LEED credits for certified wood, reuse, recycled content, and regional materials.  Siberian Spruce is available in 5/8″ or 3/4″ thicknesses, with a face width of 3″, and in random lengths from 4′ – 8′+.
