Samples available of all of our woods!

Other hard and soft woods become available from time to time and prices for these vary.

Distressed antique woods come in random widths and lengths. Will have nail holes, knots, deeper than hairline cracks, worm and insect tracks and signs of wear and tear produced with passages of time. A much richer and deeper patina enhances colouring and adds to the charm of rustic, homey installation. Due to the extra preparation required, a small price increase is added.
