Custom installation of 500 year old reclaimed wood beam wraps

You can really see a close up of the mushroom wood on the walls, this is steel brushed and the opposite wall is waxed to give it a shiny look. This is a technique we use for a very rustic appearance in any home or office. This worked out perfectly to give this showroom a little something special. We specialize in hardwood flooring, wall finishes and molding.

This is a very cool installation of 500 year old reclaimed wood beam wraps that we hollowed out to fit over regular dry wall corners. The floor is antique 300 year old bog oak that was pulled from the Rhine River that runs through the Swiss Alps and Germany.

Experimenting with materials is how we make interesting floors

These two photos are examples of a new floor we're working on called MIRAGE. It consists of end grain cut, reclaimed New York water tower redwood. The most interesting part of this process is that you can see the mineral deposits in the wood from the waterline seepage in the original water tanks. These tanks are typically 40 to 90 years old. You can read more about the water tower redwood below. The curvature of the planks visible in these two samples is due to the natural curve of the water tank. After trial and error, the only way to make a floor using the end grain is to stagger the planks without going in a complete circle. The end result is a very interesting floor pattern that is one of a kind. This floor is still in it's experimental stage, but if you are interested, please feel free to give us a call.
