Wood Type Options

Choosing the right wood type when selecting things like doors, shutters and floors can make the difference between high quality and low quality. Products like flooring need a denser, harder wood type to stand up to the wear and tear of every day life. Outdoor products like shutters, doors and siding need to be rot resistant so that your products last a life time. Use our Quick Reference Wood Guide below and read through our selection of wood choices to find out which one best suits your needs! 

ANTIQUE HEART PINE "The Craftsman's Choice"

• 500 years old • Durable and Long-lasting • Tight grain heart wood
Perfect for: Doors, Moldings, Flooring, Accent Walls, Flooring, Wood Ceilings, Beams, Stairs, and Mantels

Antique heart pine was one of the building blocks of our country’s history. Sourced from the original forests of the US, the majestic Longleaf pine trees once dominated the forests. These towering trees which, when harvested, yielded the best type of long, straight grained lumber in colors of rich gold to amber to the warm browns. 

When the last of these trees were felled in the mid-1920’s, the conditions that allowed them to grow and develop their dense heart centers would never be present again.  Our antique heart pine offers a durability that only time can provide.

ANTIQUE HEART CYPRESS “The Wood Eternal”

•1,000 years old Water resistant  Open grain
Perfect for: Doors, Molding, Accent walls, Wood Ceilings, Shutters, and Mantels

Our Antique Heart Cypress is exclusively from reclaimed lumber recovered from the depths of bayous, lakes and rivers of the South. Cypress logging saw its peak from the late 1800′s until the last “great grandfather” trees fell in the mid 1920’s. You may have heard several names for cypress. Swamp cypress, Tidewater Red, Louisiana Cypress, Southern Cypress, or Bald Cypress.

Cypress was an unusual tree that grew naturally in standing water, sending up “knees”, specialized bark growths that stood above the water line to send oxygen to the underground roots. Antique Heart Cypress, known as the “Wood Eternal” because of its natural rot resistance, has been revered by craftsmen and wood workers for its wonderful workability for over a hundred years.
