It all starts with the de-nailing process. All of our reclaimed, antique barn wood is thoroughly inspected and the old nails are removed before any milling or kiln drying takes place. This ensures that our material is ready to be used for any type of application without fear of running into old nails! This truly sets us apart from other reclaimed wood sellers and we take pride in giving each piece of wood the attention it deserves.
All of our reclaimed wood flooring has been renamed! We wanted to reflect the distinct feeling these different types of wood give us while making it easier for our customers to identify their favorites. Check out the gallery below and let us know what you think!
We visited St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center in Madison, New Jersey to deliver some pet supplies and a check that we collected from our big sale and demonstration day back in October. Animals are very close to our hearts and we couldn't think of a better cause to donate to. Thank you to everyone who shopped our sale and donated to these beautiful animals in need! (And no, we didn't take any dogs home ... yet.)
Allyson is our barn wood artist, our biggest cheerleader, and the one who keeps us (and our showroom) organized. She started working with us this past spring and instantly became a part of the Real Antique Wood family. When it comes to helping our customers, Allyson is an expert at guiding them through our process to make their reclaimed wood dreams a reality.
Allyson's appreciation and enthusiasm for reclaimed wood is apparent in the beautiful hand painted works of art she creates with our barn wood cut-offs and scraps. We proudly display her pieces throughout our showroom and encourage our customers to purchase them for their homes and special spaces!
An avid Weird NJ explorer and antique hunter, she can often be found driving into the middle of nowhere to find a cool abandoned structure or quirky shop. Allyson has an eye for all things reclaimed and a heart to make old, forgotten things (and us!) feel loved again.
Mark your calendars because Saturday, October 21st is going to be a big day here at Real Antique Wood.
We will be holding a fireplace mantel sale on Saturday, October 21st from 7am to 3pm with mantels on sale up to 25% off. Along with the sale, our master carpenter and General Manager Anthony Saraceno will give a demonstration on how he makes fireplace mantels from the barn beams we rescue.
Oh, you want even more? You got it! Our good friend Lisa Lofdahl of LL Metalworks will be set up here at the mill with her blacksmith forge to give you a glimpse at how blacksmithing used to be done long ago.
Think that's it? No way! Our owner, Gary Horvath, will also be giving tours around the mill and property, showing you what all of our machines do and most certainly telling stories about the barns we've taken down.
10% of the total sales for the day will be donated to St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center in Madison, NJ to assist dogs including those affected by the recent hurricanes. We'll also be accepting donations, so stay tuned for details!

Our hardwood mix tables bring character and warmth to The Ainsworth's new location in Newark, NJ. It's a long journey from barn to table, but it's all worth it in the end.
