Rock Elm is an unsung hero of the woods available in the reclaimed industry. It is virtually unavailable on the modern, commercial market. As one Canadian paper company’s website says, “Today, the species is much too rare for commercial uses.”
However, Rock Elm is found fairly regularly in Wisconsin and Canada in old barns. It has a fairly light color with a hardness between oak and maple, and has the grain patterns of the Elm family. The old stuff has a nice range of color within a given board.
Rock Elm is a “must see” kind of wood. We love it here!
