Our authentic reclaimed wood flooring boards are sold in 20 sq. ft. bundles with variable numbers of unique grain variations, knots, and other characteristics. Keep in mind, these are authentic reclaimed pieces of wood here, no two are the same. Much of our reclaimed hardwood flooring comes from resawing larger beams into boards and then milling into flooring. Because of that our reclaimed boards will have many more characteristics and "defects" compared to new flooring. Please keep this in mind when purchasing. Additionally, we HIGHLY recommend you order AT LEAST 10% more flooring than you need so you are not short and do not have to wait for more flooring to be milled specifically for your project requirements.
Images shown are a representation of the pieces received. Due to the nature and origin of these boards, your pieces may differ slightly. We do offer sample pieces to help ensure you get what you want.
Our flooring comes ready to finish. This allows you to stain it yourself, or seal it with the finish of your choice to achieve the exact look you desire. All pieces are kiln-dried and may include defects, such as knots, insect markings, worm holes and saw markings

MTC is not responsible for flooring installation. Because the boards aren’t going to be sanded flat, subfloor prep is extremely important. While we attempt to limit overwood or underwood situations when installing, Modern Timber Craft does not guarantee standardization of reclaimed wood pieces. Installers should prepare to accommodate defects in wood. Check with a professional installer before ordering.
The first settlers in America used materials on hand to construct buildings. Today, individuals love to make use of this reclaimed wood when building or remodeling a residence or office. The history of the piece adds to the ambiance of the area. The wood used in this manner comes from barns, stables, mills, and more, and many pieces are hundreds of years old. What makes this wood truly unique and highly coveted?
Reclaimed hand-hewn lumber pieces are truly one of a kind. The different species underwent decades of weathering and wear to obtain their current appearance. As a result, each piece is unique, and the wood varies by where it was first obtained. The settlers never discriminated when it came to the wood used for the structure, so a person could find many varieties of reclaimed wood all coming from the same region.
Additionally, reclaimed wood typically offers more variations that are no longer seen in wood species. For instance, as trees in the past were allowed to grow to their full height, the rings observed in this timber tend to be wider than seen in newer pieces. These pieces often have more knots and other markings that make the piece unique and give it charm.
If a person is fortunate enough to know where the wood came from, the piece becomes an interesting topic of conversation. When someone asks about the hand-hewn lumber, the owner can not only explain what it is but also provide information on where it came from and what makes it special. That doesn’t happen with pieces that are mass produced today.
