From industrial revolution era warehouses, this antique wood has marks of time to prove the antique boards have already played a part in history.

Legacy has somewhat more frequent and slightly larger knots than River-Recovered because the majority of the clear wood on the outside of the log was cut away to make the industrial revolution era beam. Can be ordered as ‘clear’ grade, free of nail holes on face or no bolt holes, each for a premium.

Antique Legacy™ Select Heart Pine features an arching grain bordered with 75 to 85 percent vertical grain. Infrequent nail holes average about 15 per 100 square feet. Slight nail staining adds rustic charm that blends perfectly with the reclaimed antique heart wood.

With the same rich color and durability of our river-recovered® products, this building-reclaimed wood has 98 to 100 percent heart face, with 100 heart available.
