New England Softwoods
Our popular antique surface, or “dirty face” as we like to call them, Native New England softwood boards. Taken from 3×8, 3×10, and 3×12 antique spruce, fir, white pine, and hemlock timbers that have aged for over 100 years, this vintage look comes in varying thickness boards and random widths from 3″-12″. The “dirty face” is the original exposed face of the timber.
Mystic Seaport Museum & Charlestown Naval Yard Oak
One hundred and fifty pieces of what we call Constitution Oak were sourced in Charlestown Mass at the former Naval Shipyard. These live oak and white oak beams have a provenance like no other wood (see Dendrochronological evaluation). Harvested in the mid 1800’s, these oak beams were weighted with granite and then submerged in a salt water pond at the Charlestown Naval Yard. They were used when a US Naval vessel needed repair. Some pieces still have visible inventory markings. This wood is filled with New England history!
We have thousands of feet of vintage 2″ thick, reclaimed barn oak in varying widths from 4″-10″ to suit any and all building applications. Unlike many of our competitors, we offer our all of our premium quality wood in the form that suits your needs, from raw reclaimed stock, to re-sawn dimensional kiln-dried lumber, and premium finished surfaces.
