The original one sold, so this piece is made to order to look very similar to the one in the picture.


This art piece is inspired by a recent trip I took with my wife in Grand Tetons where we spent a week on Jackson Lake. We would go down to the water for a swim every evening to watch the sunset, as the sun would set in back of the Grand Tetons mountain range the Moon would appear, the water would be calm and you would see the reflection of the mountain range in the water. We would also watch the moon set behind the mountain range and stars would come out at full swing, which made for a memorable trip.


This piece was created using multiple different types of reclaimed wood from old barns, homes and horse fencing.

All the colors in this piece are original due to the aging and weathering of the wood, which means there is no stain or paint on the wood. The frame is made of poplar hardwood stained in a Black Ebonized finish. I then apply two coast of low VOC water based sealer to protect the piece while preserving the look and texture of reclaimed wood.

All my art pieces are made using very old wood from barns and homes taken down in my area.

Hi My name is Craig Forget and I am a reclaimed wood artist

I feel that I am part of the large art movement that has been growing in the Detroit and Windsor area, it is great to be part of this movement. It is also great to be able to express myself through art. I am in it for the long haul, I believe in producing the most unique art pieces with the most unique wood that I can find. I always feel that it is the old, reclaimed wood that makes my pieces unique.


I have been influenced by woodworking from a very young age and recently I have found my true passion for building unique artwork and furniture out of reclaimed barn wood. What I love about the materials that I work with is that you never know what types of wood you are going to find in the local barns that range from 80 to 200 years of age. You could say I am like a kid in a candy store.


What makes my artwork and furniture so unique is that I am always on the hunt for unique types of wood that will create an impressive piece. I especially enjoy working with wood that is bursting with character. There are no faux finishes in the world that can duplicate the colors and textures that Mother Nature creates, 95% to 100% of the colors you see on my art pieces have not been stained what you see is the natural color of the wood. When wood is aged for 80 to 100 years, it turns naturally dark in color.
The darker brown natural woods were those aged within a barn, while grey boards have been weathered outside.
When you are buying one of my pieces, you are also buying a piece of Pioneer history, when power tools were almost non-existent.
