OUR RECLAIMED HERITAGE

Reclaimed woods are at the heart of what we do; it’s where we started, it’s what we’re passionate about and it’s also where we learnt the skills required to make such elegant new wood floors. These woods are steeped in history, hence the care and dedication we put into reclaiming and restoring each one.

HOW WE RESTORE

RECLAIMED WOOD FLOORING EXPLAINED

Reclaimed wood flooring comes in many many different wood species. As our built heritage in the United Kingdom spans many centuries and during this time woods have been imported from almost every part of the world.

Maple from Canada, Oak, Pitch Pine and Douglas Fir from North America, Jarrah from Australia, Iroko, Sapele and Wenge from Africa to name just a few.

Be it a pier, a Victorian textile mill, a government building or a row of terraced houses. Reclaimed wood can be sourced from a multitude of different places.

Many of the woods found in these old buildings are some of the finest woods ever to be used and not only do we enjoy reclaiming and finding them a new purpose, it is also a responsibility for all of us to make the most of these wonderful old woods.

It is also important to note that not all old wood is good wood and our expertise is in finding and restoring the woods with soul, character and history.

RECLAIMED PINES

Understated treasures

Our various reclaimed Pines have been used for centuries.

It is valued for both its strength and malleable nature, appearing commonly as wooden beams, flooring, cladding and for structural purposes.

The growth rings are tight and offer an insight into the age of this wood, with some being hundreds of years old.

The boards feature a range of interesting grain patterns and historical imperfections throughout, and all have that lovely, distinctive natural pine smell.

THE STORY OF OUR RECLAIMED JARRAH

Jarrah is a slow growing Australian hardwood known for its durability and strength. It’s also one of the rarest woods we hold, with its journey to Woodworks by Ted Todd covering land and sea.

RECLAIMED OAK

Reclaimed wood beyond the floor

Many of our reclaimed Oak surfaces are designed with use as wall cladding in mind.

Our favourites of these are our Vodka Oak and Bourbon Oak.

Sourced from European vodka vats and Nashville whiskey barrels respectively, the spirit has granted this wood a incredibly tight straight grain.

No two pieces of this reclaimed wood are the same as you’ll find interesting manmade markings throughout the Vodka Oak in particular.
