Antique Floor – Reclaimed Pine Barn Wood
Out of stock
Barnsiding come is lots of different varieties and colors. There are a couple of ways to make a really nice barnwood floor —
First, you can “skip plane” the top surface so that most of the paint is removed, but some red or white remains in the cracks.
Second, good barnsiding is what we call “rough back.” It has an original sawn surface rather than a planed surface. It sands up beautifully. Leave lots of character and bevel the edges.
To prepare our barnwood flooring, we re-cut, or “straight line rip” the edges so that they are clean and straight. We also go through and “defect,” or remove, all of the rot, cracked, or questionable pieces. We also plane one side down so that the thickness is consistent. Our quality standards for flooring are higher than our quality standards for barnwood paneling (thus the price difference).
Please note that barnsiding is a pretty soft floor. Either expect a lot of wear, or use in low traffic areas such as a sun porch. We also recommend a hardwax oil such as Rubio Monocoat, Osmo PolyX, or Pullman Magic Oil for a finish.
Most barnwood is about 8 to 11 inches once we do our work.
Single Width Prices (depends on current availability) :
Prepared Barnsiding – $4.95/SF
Hand Sanded top with bevels – add $1.00 per square foot

We also do lots of custom work. If we understand what you are seeking, we can find and create that magic piece.

Mantels with Metal
We work with a great local blacksmith to add metal straps and other ornamentation to our mantels. He is the real deal — coal forged and hand hammered. The metalwork has great color and tight fit. Nothing machined. We can start with a finished mantel you find on our site, or we can start with raw stock for more options.
Here are a few examples of the hundreds that we have crafted over the years. We can work together to create something unique. You can also browse our Mantels with Metalwork page.
In most cases, no special and expensive brackets are required — just some lag screws. The different approaches outlined are very strong, simple, and economical. Take a look at our mantel installation tips.
