Specification Sheet #6228 - Antique Weathered Oak Lumber
Oak (White Oak and Red Oak mixed)
Barns, corncribs, stables, mills, homes and other buildings and agricultural/industrial/construction structures and materials from different locations in North America
Nails and other fasteners are left in the material or may be removed, leaving occasional nail holes. Staining around nail and fastener holes is common.
Unlimited; some knots are broken, loose or fallen out
Surface checking is allowed; some cracking is allowed as long as board is sound.
Antique Weathered Oak Lumber is air dried over years of having been in an old structure. The resulting lumber is much more stable and less prone to shrinkage than is green lumber.
a) Thickness: approximately 1" or approximately 2"; b) Standard Width: Random, 3" to 6"; most common widths are 5" and 6"; wider boards (7 to 10"+) are available (please request quote); and c) Length: 1' increments up to 16', with most common lengths being in the 8-13' range.
Typically, approximately 4 pounds per board foot
Antique Weathered Oak Lumber will have at least one weathered face.
Some boards are more rustic than others; in general, boards have a nice aged appearance, with checking, knots, nail holes, stain, some water-stain, etc. (all in varying degrees).
Boards can vary in appearance from piece to piece and even within a piece. The characteristics described on this specification sheet generally apply to each board's featured face. The opposite face and edges can differ from the featured face in texture, coloring, and other characteristics unless otherwise noted. Weathered lumber / barnwood will have at least one weathered face. The opposite face and edges can be any combination of weathered and fresh-sawn. If weathered, the weathering will often be different (amount, mix of colors, etc) than on the featured face.
