Once widely used for flooring, moulding and structural timbers, the mighty American Chestnut has been fighting its way back from near extinction.
Remilled from antique beams and planks, the chestnut flooring has a warm patina and the fantastic grain patterns that made this wood so popular in the 1800s and early 1900s.
The dense wood is natrually resistant to rot and insect damage. Resawn flooring is relatively smooth and flat, but does display knots, nail and worm holes characteristic of antique wood.
Flooring is milled to a 3/4" thickness and comes in random lengths of two to 12 feet. Board widths are described as 3 to 5 inches, 6 to 9 inches, and 9 to 12 inches (limited availability). Price depends on width.
Boards are butt-edge for surface nailing (shown), but for an additional cost they can be milled with tongues and grooves.
