Every grain tells a story…
French Oak Trading Company stocks a large range of reclaimed antique French Oak available from our Anglesea warehouse.
RECLAIMED ORIGINAL FRENCH OAK BOARDS AND FLOORING
Our range of reclaimed French Oak boards are sawn from beams sourced from old barns and industrial buildings from across Europe. Each piece of timber is carefully selected. We then clean, de-nail, clip the ends and kiln dry each board. The boards are available as, blanks, solid in widths from 130mm to 230mm, thicknesses between 20mm to 30mm and lengths up to 2.5m. These are perfect for flooring and joinery.
RECLAIMED ORIGINAL FRENCH OAK BEAMS
Often massive sized, from the 18th and 19th centuries, hand selected beams, rough-sawn and reclaimed from old and disused manors, barns and estates, can be used as elements in traditional or French designed homes in ceilings, kitchens, lofts and flooring. The beams yield a lighter colour than antique boards and are the most rustic, retaining their original characteristics: cracks, worm holes and nail marks. These reclaimed French oak beams create stunning and authentic elements that are completely unrivalled by any new products. The sizes range from 1.7m to 4m in length and we can source up to 6m for specific orders. Profiles vary from 80mm, 100mm and up to 200m.
RECLAIMED FRENCH OAK CLADDING
Weathered French Oak timber is a unique, reclaimed product that will add character and rustic charm to any architectural facade. The timber has been naturally dried for decades in the intense sun and extreme winters of Europe, creating a perfectly dried, strong and true reclaimed board. The sizes ranges from 800mm to 2.5m in length, with varying thicknesses, generally in the range of 8mm to 12mm.
RECLAIMED RE-MILLED FRENCH OAK PARQUETRY
Our range of reclaimed and re-milled French oak parquetry is milled from beams sourced from old barns and industrial buildings from across Europe. Each piece of timber is carefully selected. We then clean, de- nail, re mill, kiln dry and dress the timber. The French Oak Trading Company offers a traditional block parquetry design or we can work with you on a bespoke solution.
Parquetry Blocks have been used traditional in France for centuries and add a unique character to any project.
ORIGINAL ANTIQUE PARQUETRY BLOCKS
Through our suppliers around the world, we occasionally discover original antique parquetry blocks. These blocks can be re-milled to a clean finish to obtain a polished aesthetic while maintaining the beneficial characteristics of an aged wood. These antique treasures are available in very limited quantities.
