Mushroom Wood

“Mushroom wood” is the name given to a specific type of reclaimed wood, sourced from mushroom processing facilities. And despite the primitive look, it’s age doesn’t stretch back all that far, as the boards were used in short term service for curing mushrooms. In that process, the fungi slowly removed the early wood fibers, leaving a hyper-textured and earthy brown patina. But words do not do credit to the actual article – as striking and graphic a wood surface as you’d find. Hemlock, is favored for the process. Science is still unearthing the exchange between trees and fungi below the forest floor, as wood and mushrooms are inextricably bound. In that sense, a large volume of all the worlds lumber could be seen, in part, as Mushroom Wood.

As the woods are so heavily textured, they are most popular for residential and commercial accent walls and ceilings.
Available in:

  • 8 to 16 ft
  • 5 to 12 inches
  • ½ to 1 inch

 


Specifications

  • Barn Siding paneling is normally milled to 7/16″ thickness.
  • Vintage Lumber is also able to meet customer’s requirements for both thinner and thicker Barn Siding.
  • Most of our solid siding is produced in random widths(RW) from 2” to 10”, on the full inch and half an inch face. Typical RW ranges are 2” to 8”, or any combination needed. Board widths of over 20” are sometimes available in certain species. The wider the widths required, the higher the costs.  For prompt filling of orders, we base our RW counts on available widths in inventory, and we calculate the dimensions of your wall to facilitate installation to avoid all of one width remaining at the end.
