Zakopane in the Sierras.
This is our resource. Old reclaimed beams and structural pieces of TEAK from old warehouses and farmhouses in Indonesia, Malaysia and China. This wood is then kiln dried and "re-mann’d" by surfacing, cutting and gluing up panels for "re-manufacturing" into cabinets, furniture, architectural accoutrements and other use-able consumer products. Great care is taken to avoid hidden nails, etc as that destroys woodworking machinery and blades.
This is the ultimate form of re-use, often confused with what today’s "greenies" refer to as sustainability… TEAK is one of the hardest woods on the Planet, and will last 1000 years.
