reclaimed oak boxcar

These boards are salvaged from the deconstruction of French railway carriages dating back to the late 19th century. To achieve a beautiful, all application & easy to install, reclaimed board; we specially select & process the full thickness oak boards. After slicing, we machine the rough old face to leave a beautiful, pronounced patina. Bolt holes are filled using oak pellets, and splits and cracks are left untouched as they are desired features. These boards are machined with tongue and grooves for easy application in flooring or cladding situations.
