So once you’ve decided to move forward with reclaimed wood floors, it’s time to pick the type of reclaimed wood to use. This could be a tedious process, but to help you along the way, we’ve asked our very own Lisa Horvath a few questions to help you find the “right” type of wood for you.
Old wood is imperfect. It bears the scars of hundreds of years of weathering and aging. It is infused with the grain and character that only comes with decades of growth in virgin forests. It has cracks, splits, holes, and even after it’s been baked in our kiln it will continue to morph and settle before your eyes. Antique wood has a soul, and it’s best not to contain it. Consider yourself warned.
