Introducing our very first solar kiln. As you may know Architectural Justice acquires fallen trees that would otherwise be headed for landfills or be turned into mulch, and turns them into beautiful pieces of furniture. This is the first of three solar kilns that will be used to dry the wood that our furniture is crafted from.
The kilns are 1,500 sq. ft. and hold roughly 20 slabs of wood. The wood slabs will spend three months in the kiln before they are ready to be crafted into furniture. Before the kiln we air dried our lumber which would take an entire year. Now with the kiln we are able to solar-heat the wood much faster and start creating more one of a kind furniture pieces.
Take a look at some of the furniture we are able to create using our reclaimed wood.
