Wood is a special material, born of the Earth and nurtured by the rains. Even amidst the turmoil of our modern age, wood evokes a sense of romance and antiquity that transports us to a more elegant time. Every piece of wood has a lifetime of stories to tell; some have even witnessed the very birth of our nation and can provide glimpses of our shared heritage. With a simple touch or a whiff of sawdust, vintage wood can connect us in powerful ways to those who came before us.
At Keystone Vintage Lumber, we use old-world craftsmanship and artistry to celebrate aged wood’s past and prepare it for a dignified future. After we reclaim a piece of wood, we transform it into something amazing and give it a chance to be a part of your personal story. Bring us the lingering wisps of a dream, and we can translate that vision into reality.
We pay special attention to the materials of our craft, embracing a deep commitment to ensuring reclaimed wood finds new purpose while preserving its character and intrinsic beauty. From complete structural restorations to custom furniture, we take great pride in the quality and authenticity that has become the hallmark of Keystone Vintage Lumber.

Thirty five miles from the historic capital of Richmond, Virginia sits a 13,000 square foot warehouse in an established industrial park. Turn off US 360 and you won’t need to venture far before you discover a hand-chiseled wooden sign welcoming you to Keystone Vintage Lumber.
Inside our warehouse, towering stacks of vintage and salvaged wood await your inspection and purchase. As you make your way to our nearby showroom, an exterior of charred chestnut oak greets you. Once inside, you’ll find readily available wares as beautiful and rich in history as the interior itself.
A sprawling shelter originally built and used by the venerable Bethlehem Steel Corp., our Pennsylvania warehouse shields our ample inventory from the ravages of the elements. Modern milling equipment, an on-site kiln, and rows of salvaged wood stand ready to prepare classic, customized materials for your next project.
Just steps away from our warehouse, you’ll discover our showroom, tastefully appointed from floor to ceiling in handcrafted wood, where our own creative expressions might take the form of a rustic dinner table or elegant wine rack.

Eldon founded Keystone Vintage Lumber in 2009 to tap into that passion and help other people craft unique, authentic visions for their homes and businesses. He focuses his energy on growing KVL into the premier resource for reclaimed wood.
From boats to fine furniture, Jeff Hanna can rely on his bachelor’s degree in studio art from the University of Iowa to design the perfect piece and then craft it using his woodworking degree from Thaddeus Stevens. His love of wood is equal only to his passion for antique hand tools. Jeff manages the KVL shop and warehouse and will gladly help you find the right material for your next project. Away from the shop, Jeff can be found rock climbing outdoors.
