The rustic chic style may still be holding strong in the decor industry, but it is interesting to note how expensive distressed and vintage-looking items are becoming; Stikwood by Jerry McCall, a master woodworker based in Sacramento, California, addresses one of these ridiculously priced items. A much more affordable alternative to reclaimed wood, it is a peel-and-stick panelling system that uses less energy and material.

Essentially, Stikwood by Jerry McCall are made out of ultra-thin wood planks with an adhesive backing that sticks to any surface. Such thin pieces of wood may be nothing new, but McCall has revolutionized the production process to make it use less energy without wasting as much material. He essentially looked to the snowboarding industry for inspiration.
