Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has introduced Reclaimed Route 66 Lumber, sourced from the decks of tractor trailer trucks that travelled across the U.S., including travel on Route 66. The Reclaimed Route 66 Lumber planks are a mix of red and white oak and measure six feet in length, 12″ wide and 1-1/4″ thick. The edges are dotted with blackened holes where bolts were torched out; these holts can be let as is for character or trimmed off if desired. The bottom side is less worn and shows rust bands from the tractor trailer’s frame. A project utilizing this lumber is featured in the February 2014 issue of Woodworker’s Journal. The Reclaimed Route 66 Lumber (item 44241) sells for $5.99 per board foot in stores and online in bundles of two planks (15 board feet) for $89.95.
