Finishes And Options

Please note that while every effort will be made to keep colors, stains and texture consistent with our samples below, please note some variables are often out of our control. This product is an excellent choice for those whose decor will tolerate a range of character and the beauty of natural “imperfections.” This is a standard disclaimer when working with reclaimed wood, as every board is unique. Every effort should be made to order pieces going in the same room at the same time, as they will be processed together.  If you have ordered a color sample it is important that you send it back to us for close color matching.  If you prefer not to do so you your order will be finished in the same color range but may vary in depth from the sample you have received.    Rustic textures will often be darker with the same finish than those with a smoother texture.


Samples available for $3 each, please contact us to request colors.

Great for, tables, kitchen islands, accent tables and even great for the outdoors!









Description of Textures

When ordering any reclaimed wood product all boards will vary in terms of texture , character and evenness of each board.   If you are deciding on a particular texture preference it will be important for you to understand what to expect in the finished product.   Please read this section carefully as this may make a difference in what texture you select.  The texture you select will have a direct impact on how long we leave the boards in the planer and the final outcome of what your table will look like including  how flat or cupped your boards will end up.


Now offering tables made from new maple. This is an excellent choice for smooth, painted and high gloss finishes. Unlike reclaimed wood, new maple will not have nail holes and/or evidence of previous use and sits perfectly flat.   Priced out the same as old oak. Orders for maple must be called in.


Smooth textures do not imply that there will be no nail holes or other areas in the wood that have seen “damage” from previous use.  The boards we use in the construction of our products are reclaimed boards from century old domestic structures.  “Smooth” texture implies that the boards will be sanded down more sufficiently – the end result being flatter boards/less cupping and many of the superficial marks will be sanded off.   Smooth texture is an excellent desk surface or where you want a greater degree of board evenness.


A medium texture preference will be sanded down less than “smooth”  and will have a degree of *cupping  and more evidence of its history left in the boards than does a smooth texture.    Expect to see nail holes, old marks, minor board cupping, and the possible use of pegs that have been used to fill damaged areas.   You may see some saw marks left in the wood however these will  be less noticeable than our “rustic” textured wood.

*Board cupping is a natural occurrence in old wood.  Should you be want a flatter surface it will be important to order a smooth texture.


When orders are placed with a “rustic texture preference” our builders will make certain to keep the boards as close to the original condition that they were found.   While the finished product will be smooth to the touch something ordered “rustic” will have cupped boards, saw marks ( you can opt to have them removed), old dings and dents, nail holes, possible wood pegs and board unevenness.  We do not have control as to where any of these imperfections may be in any given board or where they might fall in a finished product and will not consider any of these characteristics to be grounds for return.  While extremely family friendly tables, rustic textures are not recommended if you prefer a flat, even surface.  Easy to maintain, a rustic texture will most easily blend in any new blemishes that are likely to happen with daily use.




Our quick guide to considering table size / length:

  1. 18″ Extensions leaves can add 2 guests on either side, great for occasional use
  2. Normal space between chairs: 6″ and 2″ for tight occasional use.
  3. 24″ recommended space between chair and the wall
  4. Consider a bench for tight spaces
  5. Round table seating formula: (Diameter [inches] x 3.14 ) / 24″
  6. Choosing a trestle or pedestal base will provide more room than choosing legs.
  7. Unsure of the right size? Try mapping out with painters tape!
  8. Please remember, we can make any custom size (or other request) you need! 

Breadboard ends are a centuries old technique that was originally used to prevent warping and cracking of very wide planks. Today the planks we use are not as wide and, with the construction technique we use, breadboard ends are now optional. Throughout the year, especially in the drier and colder months, you may notice that the breadboard end extends beyond the rest of the tabletop. Rest assured, it is performing its intended function and is not defective. It will recede in the warmer, more humid months. Tables with no breadboard ends will have stretchers mounted on the backside for extra support.

Lumber Thickness

*The national standard for lumber thickness is referred to by the “1/4″ system”. The quarter system calls out the boards rough thickness in ¼” increments. The rough thickness refers to the thickness of the board before it has been planned smooth. For example a board that has a rough thickness of 4/4″ was 1″ thick before it was planed. After the board is planed the thickness should be 13/16″, or close to ¾”. A (1″) or (2″) thick table therefore will not be a true one or two inches by the time it is ready to be made into a table. Similarly, the standard widths run between 36″-38″, custom widths available.

Furniture Maintenance

Our barn wood products are all triple sealed with environmentally friendly water based products. These products protect the wood from environmental damage and will resist watermarks. Surfaces should be cleaned with a damp sponge. Commercial cleaners and polishes should be avoided as solvents in these products can damage the existing finish.
