About Us

Woodstock Vintage Lumber was founded in Nashville, TN in the spring of 1996, when Brent Coursey, a lifelong refurbishment and restoration hobbyist, left the restaurant industry to follow his passion.

Brent began his career purchasing and restoring buildings and homes, which served as an introduction to the unique character of antique first growth lumber: lumber which is often culled from over 700 years of growth. Brent fell in love with reclaiming this lumber and saw opportunities throughout the changing Nashville landscape to restore these materials from dozens of aging and abandoned warehouses. With this vision, Woodstock Vintage Lumber was founded.

Since then, Woodstock Vintage Lumber continues to illustrate a love for reclaiming antique lumber from demolition, including the purchase of 600 beams of historic wood from the demolition-bound Union Train Shed in 2001. This structure, built in 1890, was considered an "engineering masterpiece" as the largest single-span gable roof structure in the US. Woodstock Vintage Lumber restored the wood from this historic landmark, and the lumber has been used as wide plank flooring, decorative beams, and reclaimed furniture for some of the most beautiful homes in the Nashville area.

Woodstock practices a socially responsible restoration process by reclaiming antique lumber, handmade brick and chiseled stone in Tennessee for re-use nationwide.
