Fireplace Mantel Sale, Demonstrations, & More!

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!

Whew! That was a lot. To sum it all up:

Barn to Table

Barn to Table

It all starts with a barn. Our crew carefully deconstructs 100+ year old barns and brings the antique wood back to our mill. The wood is then de-nailed, kiln dried, and turned into something new. Giving historic American wood new life is what we set out to do from the very beginning and we're lucky to be a part of this beautiful material's story.

Client Spotlight: The Barrow House

The Barrow House in Clifton, NJ transformed an old farmhouse into a historic masterpiece of a restaurant. This project utilized all kinds of reclaimed wood and material from our mill. Huge barn beams were used throughout the restaurant's ceilings, barn siding was used as wall and ceiling material, and our reclaimed corrugated tin was used for the roof. Places like The Barrow House are so great at preserving our American history. The aesthetic of this restaurant is only matched by their delicious food! Check them out if you're ever in the area and tell them your friends at Real Antique Wood sent you.

Kiln Dried

Did you know that we kiln dry all of our reclaimed, antique wood?

We have two large kilns at our mill that are always cooking our freshly salvaged antique wood. We kiln dry our wood to kill off any potential bugs as well as to lower the moisture content. Our kilns truly set us apart from other reclaimed wood operations. Learn more in the video below!

Meet The Team: Megan Curley

Often referred to as "our computer girl" by Gary, our brand and marketing manager Megan Curley has introduced Real Antique Wood into the world of digital technology. After joining the team in March of 2015, Megan made instant waves when on her second day of work she posted the picture of our Floor of the Year 2015 submission to Facebook (see below). The picture went viral and received over 14 million views. It seemed Megan had accidentally set the bar pretty high for herself!

After the excitement of the "viral floor" kicked things off, Megan moved forward with bringing the Real Antique Wood brand up to speed. Refreshing the brand's presence was the first order by creating a new logo and website to represent the company. She revamped our social media outlets (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.) and began giving them daily attention to showcase the beauty and uniqueness of our reclaimed wood projects.

Megan is our in-house photographer, social media manager, and digital advertising strategist. At Real Antique Wood she gets to combine her passion for writing, photography, and old wood all in one. Megan brings customers and attention to us from all over and we owe our growth and popularity to her marketing savvy.
