THE REAL ANTIQUE WOOD PROCESS
From the start, we put the upmost care into our wood and products. While some distributors rely on suppliers to provide their stock, we go all across the country to find and reclaim antique wood rich which quality and history. We then get it ready for its new home – yours!
Whether our antique wood will be used for residential or commercial use, we apply the same care and treatment to every piece.
Recycling Barn Wood
Finding quality antique wood is the most important step in our process.
Our team travels all across the United States to find antique barn wood
to bring back to our mill in New Jersey.
Once the wood is back at our mill, our team of dedicated specialists comb
through thousands of feet of wood and remove every nail by hand to ensure
your wood product gets the proper Real Antique Wood treatment.
Stack and Sticker
Once the nails and metals are removed, we stack and log our wood so
we always know what is in stock at all times.
Our wood is kiln dried to kill off any bugs that may be living inside as well
as to lower the moisture content of the wood. Kiln drying the wood is key
to ensuring longevity.
Surfacing & Ripping
Next we place our reclaimed wood through a Dual Surfacer and Mattison
Straight Line Rip saw to ensure even cuts and thicknesses throughout
One of the final steps in the RAW process is to mould the wood which gets
it primed and ready for installation.
