antique flooring - wide plank flooring

Antique Heart Pine Flooring

We mill four different widths for inventory (2 1/2", 3 1/2", 4 1/2" and a 5 1/2"). Wider widths up to 11 ½" are done on a quote basis. Antique timbers chosen for resaw are hand selected, denailed and resawn. The resawn boards are individually graded and ripped to width. At this point, all rot and through splits are cut out. All sapwood is eliminated from the face surface of SELECT and PERFECT. The sized lumber is then put through a multi-headed moulder and run into a tongue and groove flooring match profile. The bottom of all our flooring is stress relieved by cutting channels to prevent cupping and allow the flooring to breathe. Lengths go from 1' to over 12'. The average length is 6' to 8'.

Finally, each piece of flooring is individually graded, culling out the inferior wood and defecting the good planks by removing all loose and large knots, rough shake, bolt holes and through splits. Both ends of each board are trimmed. Through this "hands-on" process we ensure that every inch of floor we produce is "What It's Worth". All material subject to prior sale until a deposit has been received.
