Unveiling the Hidden Stories of Barnwood: The Craftsmanship of Dale Wayne Etheridge

In the heart of Hickman County, Tennessee, resides a man whose passion for preserving history knows no bounds. Meet Dale Wayne Etheridge, a skilled craftsman whose journey intertwines with the forgotten narratives of abandoned barns and homes. While many see these structures as mere eyesores, Dale perceives them as vessels of rich history spanning centuries.

A Tale of Restoration and Renewal

Dale's calling lies in salvaging these relics of the past, offering them a second chance at life. Whether it's the desire to see them restored to their former glory or the need for their demolition, Dale approaches each project with unwavering dedication. If destruction is the chosen path, he meticulously deconstructs the buildings, salvaging every piece of wood with care.

His creations, a blend of rustic charm and contemporary aesthetics, breathe new life into spaces, evoking a sense of nostalgia and warmth.

Crafting Stories, One Piece at a Time

Each piece of furniture crafted by Dale carries with it a story—a narrative that transcends time and resonates with its new owners. In his book, "Barnwood Speaks," Dale invites readers on a journey through the history of ten such pieces, from the seedling in a forest to its reincarnation as a cherished item in a household.

Preserving Legacy, Inspiring Future Generations

Through his work, Dale not only preserves the legacy of the past but also inspires a newfound appreciation for craftsmanship and heritage. His creations, scattered across homes nationwide, serve as tangible reminders of the tales whispered by the wood itself.
