Reclaimed French Oak Original Surface

These antique French oak planks have been salvaged from barns, attics, floors and walls of structures in the Provence region. The age of the planks range from 150 to 200 years. The hand-sawn and live-sawn cutting technique and its marks on each board is proof of the authenticity. Uneven saw marks, rifts, nail holes, cracks and knots give this floor a rustic character without touching the surface. The grey and grey/brown coloration is locked in with the use of surface hardening floor oils. This floor is perfect for homes that are built with a rustic theme in mind such as Ski and Hunting lodges. Mudrooms, Laundry and Recreation rooms would also be a perfect match for this vintage French oak as it is extremely forgiving and will continue to age with use. Vintage Elements mills these French planks to 3/4" thickness in either solid or engineered. Widths for the antique oak planks range from 7" to 10". We use the antique oak surface that was heavily exposed to the French farm live and elements. Alternatively we can use the reverse side of the planks for a less rustic look. Lengths range from 4' to 12'. To refine and solidify the surface we brush the French oak, lye the brushed surface and oil it several times to harden the weathered surface and give you a no maintenance floor.

Why French Oak? How about USA oak?
