What is TREELINE®?
TREELINE® is a fully equipped wood and metal workshop, reclaimed lumber yard and design studio serving the Greater Los Angeles area fabricators, interior designers, architects, homeowners, contractors and hobbyists. We specialize in custom one-off fabrication & large scale production of furnishings and solid hardwood flooring for commercial, hospitality and residential use.
What are your hours?We are available by appointment Monday through Friday, 6.30AM to 2PM. We are closed on weekends and major holidays.
Where is your furniture made?All of our pieces are carefully crafted in our Los Angeles workshop.
Where can I park?You can park in our yard.
Can you sell me just the lumber?
Yes, of course! We are a new and reclaimed lumber yard and have a rotating stock of over half a million board feet of salvaged and recycled woods on hand. We work with our milling partners to have quick turnaround on new cedar, redwood, doug fir, walnut, white oak, etc. Please note that availability of specific sizes and types of reclaimed woods can vary based on our demolition and production projects.
Why use reclaimed wood?
We love the way things used to be and the America that once was. We hate to see perfectly great things thrown away especially when they have survived the test of time, the greatest force of nature. And we do not want to cut down more trees to pursue our craft. Oh, and did we mention it all looks so good? We salvage wood that is close to 70–100 years old from renovation and demolition projects. This ensures we are building things that draw from the quality of the materials that old, turn age into their strength and can carry the legacy of the past into the future
How do you find lumber?We salvage wood from various sources, anywhere from old homes being renovated in the Los Angeles area to larger scale demolition projects all over the country. We are always striving to better our network so we can preserve more of this age old lumber in the States and provide you with quality materials. One of our largest undertakings has been a cold storage building in Stockton, CA that was built in 1912. We find it only appropriate to have stumbled upon it a century later to salvage the old America and turn its legacy into the things we make. We are confident you will approve of it.
Are there bugs in the material?We treat all our woods for termites. Reclaimed woods are known to have some form of fungus but that is responsible, at times, for the natural patina of the wood. Some of our lumber is also kiln dried. Customers are encouraged to do their own research.
What is a board foot?
One board foot (bf) is a measurement of volume that we use to measure our wood. Mathematically, 1 bf is the volume of wood that is: 1 ft long x 1 ft wide x 1 in thick. If a board is 1 ft long, 1 ft wide and 2 in thick, it consists of 2 board feet.
How do I place an order?For custom fabricated pieces, send us an email. We request any and all reference photos, renders, sketches, and any other relevant information on your non-negotiables (material, finishes, style of build, constraints on transportation, installation, etc.) you may have to get started.
For lumber and flooring, please visit our yard to see our selections or give us a call for availability.

Can I change my order?Changes can be easily made until we actually start on your order. Please note that after fabrication has started, there could be additional costs depending on the type of change made to the order. Typically, we do not start on the order for at least 3 days or until confirmation on the specs, whichever is first. Changes made in the case of rush orders may affect promised lead times.
Can I cancel my order?
Please get in touch with us as soon as possible! Typically, we do not start on the order for at least 3 days or until confirmation on the specs, whichever is first.
Can I expedite my order?Yes, based on the order and our current workload we can advise on feasibility and associated charges for rushing your order. Please feel free to discuss these options at the time of placing the order.
Is there a minimum order size?
For lumber, our minimum order amount is $250.
For custom work, we don't have any minimums but volume run does help in saving costs.
We don’t have any minimums or set up charges on our wide belt machine or laser.
Please feel free to get in touch with us and we would be happy to assist you in building you a quote.
How can I order wood samples?To order wood samples please contact us. We can tailor our samples to fit your needs. Please note that with all rustic furniture there are natural blemishes and imperfections which makes each piece unique and one of a kind.
Do you make table legs/bases?We can make a variety of bases. You can see some of our past projects here.
Is everything in stock?We make everything to order, from milling lumber to creating custom pieces. We do maintain a small stock of some items. All raw lumber is available the same or next day. Our typical lead times for fabrication items are 4-6 weeks but that may fluctuate based on our current work load.
Care and maintainance instructions?Care instructions vary from piece to piece. Please consult with us if you have concerns over a specific piece. Please see below for some general care instructions:
Wood cutting boards need to be maintained with any food grade clear minerals oils or waxes.
Our table and counter tops are coated with flat water-based polyurethane (unless otherwise noted) that does not require any special cleaning solutions or other maintenance in an indoor setting.
Exterior wooden pieces require frequent maintenance (sanding and recoating exterior grade clear coat) based on exposure, type of wood, etc. The only maintenance free wood option for exterior use is teak.
Metal patinas may show signs of oxidation if in continued exposure to moisture or if the top coat is worn off or damaged in any way. Top coat can be recoated according to a maintenance schedule set up based on use.
If you can, please limit or discontinue use of harsh chemicals (e.g., bleach, ammonia, alcohol or acetone, etc.) based cleaning products on and near our finishes.
What woods and finishes do you have?
We maintain a good stock in reclaimed oak and reclaimed douglas fir. We also stock some new woods, e.g., walnut, maple and white oak. We can bring in other materials, e.g., melamine, veneers, plywoods, MDF, hardwoods, etc. on a need basis.
As for finishes, we do offer some standard choices for our tabletops and metal work. We mix our own wood stains and can achieve approximately a 90% match to a provided photograph or guarantee a match to a physical sample.
Metal can be patina'd, painted, powder coated or electroplated.
Can I provide my own materials?Sometimes. Please reach out to us if we are able to accommodate your request. We will charge for labor and machine time only, in that case.
