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.

Whiskey Springs Blend Barn Siding

This blend of skip-planed hardwoods is milled out of woods salvaged from Midwestern agricultural buildings. The flooring mimics classic midwestern barn construction – it uses the proverbial ‘trees closest to the jobsite’. In our case, that means we re-saw a mix of reclaimed beech, maple, elm, hickory, poplar, sassafras, buckeye, and other species.

Reclaimed Midwestern Mixed Hardwood flooring is perfect for a rustic or cabin application, as well as for contemporary design scenarios where variety is desired. The dark tones of the skip-planed surface blend with various lighter earthy colors of heartwood, and the grain is plainsawn. This reclaimed flooring has lots of character, including moderate knot content and nail holes. The hardness and stability of the Midwestern Mix ranges from relatively soft to very hard.

Red Barn Siding

The tradition of painting barns red began as farmers sought ways to seal their structures from moss and fungal decay. Without the convenience of ready-made paint, farmers discovered that a blend of linseed oil, skimmed milk, lime, and rust would effectively protect their barns for many years. The color red comes from the key ingredient, rust (ferrous oxide). Signs of weathering, color variances, and cracked paint give these boards timeless character. Available in 2”– 12” widths.

Mixed Color Barn Siding

There were times when a barn was built directly from the trees that grew on its foundation. Different species of trees were cut down, milled, and then used for its siding. When wood from these historic structures is reclaimed, it generally contains a mix of elm, pine, poplar, ash, beech, and maple, which are rich with varying colors and grain patterns.

You choose the percentage of the color mix you would like.

Brown Barn Siding

Varying between hues of rich to light brown, with elegant patina, these boards come from the interior of historic barns. They’re often accented by unique circle saw marks that accent original unweathered surface textures.

 


Specifications

Grey Barn Siding

Channeling the flavor of rural and agrarian American culture, barn board’s rugged background and versatility in application make it one of the most popular salvaged woods. Centuries of weathering in direct sunlight, intense humidity, and bone-chilling winters leaves every barn wood board with a furrowed texture and more general surface character than any other reclaimed wood. Colors of reclaimed barn wood range from faded colored paints to gray, brown, and silver.
