New Planking Wormy Chestnut

RECLAIMED CHESTNUT BARN WOOD

 

Reclaimed Chestnut is the only source of this beautiful species due to a blight that wiped out almost all Chestnut trees in the early 1900’s. Most Chestnut barn wood is sold to be used with a freshly planed surface to reveal the wood’s great brown coloration and worm holes that many find romantic – thus the reason it is often referred to as “Wormy Chestnut”. This provides an antique look without a ultra-rustic cabin feel. Originating from barns dating back to the mid 1700’s on the East Coast, reclaimed Chestnut barnwood planking is available in a range of widths averaging 5”-8” and random lengths typically 4’-7’ or sometimes up to 12’+. Originally reclaimed as 1” and 2” thick boards, we often mill the boards to  ¾” stock or it can be custom milled thinner upon request. The original color is a mix of browns and grays depending on where on the barn was located. The original brown face usually has a circular sawn texture. This is a popular material for residential and commercial applications and can be milled for interior or exterior uses.

AS IS CHESTNUT PLANKING

Originating from barns on the east coast dating back to the 1800’s, wormy chestnut planking is available in an “As Is” condition with the visible hardware removed and end damage trimmed. It is most commonly available in an average 1″ or 2″ thickness and a variety of widths up to 10″ with occasional wider pieces. Originating from the inside of the barn where it was not exposed to the elements, this material is typically some shade of brown on both sides with some gray mixed in. As Is material will typically be dirty and rough and require some cleaning or sanding. This product is wildly popular for furniture, doors, tabletops, and more. We typically inventory over 5,000 board feet of this product in units of 500 BF +. Unit discounts available.

SANDED CHESTNUT PLANKING

Sanded Chestnut Planking is created by passing the individual planks through a special sander which lightly sands the surface. This process removes the dirt and splinters while keeping the texture and patina intact. This is popular for ceiling and wall applications as well as furniture and barn doors.

It produces an even more refined appearance and smoother surface. This process is also referred to as “hit and miss”. It is very popular for furniture, barn doors, and wall applications.

RESAWN CHESTNUT PLANKING

With the horizontal bandsaw, we can produce a fresh sawn face on both sides of the chestnut planking. This will remove the patina but leave the character marks from the nail holes, insect borrows, and seasoning checks. This material can also then be sanded smooth or wire brushed. It is a popular choice for clean bright installations that are looking for a less rustic application but want the performance of reclaimed old growth.
