Wooden Treasures Created From Cedar Lanes

FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) -

A Fresno business specializes in making treasures out of wood destined for the landfill.  Revive Industries latest challenge is creating all kinds of furniture from the wood salvaged from Cedar Lanes 

Tim Schulz is the leader of Revive Industries.  He never likes to see a used piece of wood go to waste.  In his Fresno warehouse you will find a coffee table, picture frames and crates all created from used wood.  "The wood working, the preservation.   Getting into an old building that's dingy, smelly and just seeing the value that's under a not so appealing layer and pulling that our and reworking it."

Schulz says Revive's guiding principle is stewardship.  Revive is always looking for people who like to work with wood including the homeless.  "We want to take these reclaimed materials that people don't place much value on and put it in the hands of people who are in need of a job or in need to fulfill some sort of purpose."

Revive Industries offers a deconstruction service.  That's why Schulz now has 26 of the bowling lanes from Cedar Lanes.  He has two bins of wood that weigh more than 24–tons.  "This is a once in a lifetime opportunity we're happy to just come on and salvage what he could from there."

Schulz says it seems everyone wants a piece of furniture from Cedar Lanes.  His biggest challenge is finding creative help to complete a backlog of orders.
