Tri-Lox Millworks

An in-depth look at the operations of Tri-Lox, a sustainable millwork and design/build workshop in Brooklyn.

Standing, from left, David Bruce, Tim Knight, Graham Steffen, Gabe Dikel (in forklift), Ellis Isenberg, and Sam Welch -- along with Alexander Bender and Mili (the dog) in foreground -- pose for a portrait at Tri-Lox Millworks.

A view inside Tri-Lox Millworks on Friday afternoon. Tri-Lox, which bills itself as a "design-build practice and sustainable lumber resource" is based in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

Sam Welch, Alexander Bender, Ellis Isenberg, and Tim Knight (from left) share a long-time friendship and a passion for woodworking.

A massive, air and kiln-dried full flitch -- a milled whole tree, in this case a red oak which fell down in Pennsylvania during Hurricane Sandy -- is among the salvaged and reclaimed lumber at Tri-Lox Millworks.

Reclaimed and salvaged wood, including planks of redwood and Alaskan yellow cedar from New York City water towers, in background, are stacked to the rafters.
