Your Groomsmen are one of a kind. Shouldn’t their gifts be too?

Your Groomsmen are one of a kind. Shouldn’t their gifts be too?


Admit it. You have actually thought about giving your Groomsmen monogrammed flasks. Or cigar boxes. Or dare we say personalized Mason jars? But there has to be a better gift idea out there, right?

Yes, and as unique as your Groomsmen are to you, the hand crafted one-of-a-kind collections at Reclaimed and Repurposed will be sure to impress your guys as well as ensure it will be a gift they treasure for years to come! I was intrigued by a beautiful pen I purchased as a Thank you gift for a friend, so I sat down with Nathan Johnson, owner of Reclaim and Repurpose to get a little more information.


What exactly is Reclaim and Repurpose?


Reclaiming materials that are destined for the landfill and repurposing or regenerating for today and tomorrow.
I take salvaged building materials from local salvaged material stores and from building projects of my own and reuse and repurpose for personal use and now for resale. Currently I work out of my garage and also my workshop.
I am in constant search of any material that could be transformed into lighting, furniture, art, gadgets, home decor and more. Barn wood (siding, flooring, beams), metal roofing or siding, wood pallets, copper or steel plumbing materials, automotive or motorcycle parts and accessories, homes or buildings needing to be stripped before remodel or demolition.  I am also in constant search of furniture that needs some TLC.




Writing pen made out of a deer antler and a .308 rifle brass, $30


Tray, $20


Wine Bottle/Glass Rack, $40



If you have or know of anyone who has materials of any condition, please contact me. I would love to salvage items before your remodel or demolition and would remove them so that it is one less thing for you to worry about. I am local to Charleston SC but I am willing to travel a bit for useful materials.


How did it get started?


I’ve always had an interest in wood working. As a kid, I was always by my dad’s side during most repair and construction projects so I grew up doing all of my own. I have been dabbling in wood working for over 15 years. I have also been building furniture for over 10 years. I started wood turning 6 years ago. So how do I combine all of this? I Reclaim and Repurpose.
