From the elevator shafts of the Copper King Mine established in 1881 in Yavapai, AZ, The Lumber Baron is proud to announce the arrival of 6×8 old growth reclaimed Kapur timbers, a bunch of which we milled into our Rustic Reclaimed Kapur Flooring. In search of dense, hardwood to support the weight of the mine shafts, theses early miners trusted their lives to the ancient Kapur trees that came out of the tropical lowland rain forests of Malaysia and Indonesia. The lumber ranges in color from light orange and yellow, to rich red and purplish browns. Old growth Kapur lumber has long been prized for durability, density, and beauty.
The availability of this Kapur lumber is limited, perhaps because the international trend towards sourcing timber from old growth rain forests has rightfully become unpopular in recent years. However, The Lumber Baron is proud to offer you this reclaimed, guilt free source.
Our rustic reclaimed Kapur flooring is loaded with character, yet warm and inviting. Available in a wide 1×7 (6 1/2 exposure) profile, this unique flooring option is simply…stunning. Matching reclaimed Kapur mantle material is also available. Our reclaimed Kapur lumber could be sliced to make beautiful furniture or paneling. Check out the pictures on this page. The reclaimed Kapur makes incredible landscape steps as well.
Our Lumber is Sustainable and Green:
Wood is the only major building material that is renewable. Lumber producers have been replacing harvested trees so diligently over the last few decades that North American forests have actually grown by 20% since 1970.
Wood is resistant, and in the right conditions, last for a very long time. Several wooden structures through out the world have lasted over a thousand years. In fact, a major part of our business is selling incredible lumber from deconstructed buildings. The ultimate in reducing the consumption of materials, our reclaimed lumber is exquisite and rich in history. Check out our other reclaimed lumber options.
