Reclaimed oak planks

“Railway sleepers / recut reclaimed oak / rail wagon planks”

Wholesaler in reclaimed oak

We cut reclaimed oak planks in various sizes for various clients in Europe, such as: 8 – 25 – 45 – 65 mm. If necessary, we can also carry out customer-specific orders in any desired thickness. Thanks to a motivated team and an automatic band saw, we can process orders for reclaimed oak accurately to the millimetre.

Recut reclaimed oak

Historisch Hout imports reclaimed timber from old granaries & wine presses from south-east Balkan countries. These often abandoned barns are bought from the local managers, after which the barns are demolished by hand. The beams are sorted by length and quality and packed into transportable packages. These reclaimed oak planks and beams are often over 150 years old! When the beams arrive in the Netherlands, they first receive a heat treatment against any pests. After this, the reclaimed oak is recut into usable fine planks, which can then be planed or brushed.

These recut reclaimed oak planks are extremely durable and have a characteristic, robust and warm look! The planks are naturally dry and very suitable for use in furniture! Recut reclaimed oak planks are a good alternative for wagon planks! In addition to processing into planks, Barnwood is also very popular for use in furniture.

We almost always have a large stock with the following lengths: 150-200 cm 200-300 cm 300-400 cm. We mainly sell recut oak planks in packages. We are the address to turn to for anything from 1 single pack to a whole truck load!

Oak wagon planks

Historic oak planks with an authentic look? Wagon planks are just what you are looking for! Wagon planks have served as floors in old freight wagons from France. After decades of use, the material is reclaimed when the old wagons are demolished. Historisch Hout has close contacts with salvage companies in France; we buy the batches and transport them to the Netherlands!

Processing of wagon planks

Brushed wagon planks retain the weathered look of the wood. The brushing process removes most of the splinters and polishes the surface. The wagon planks are treated with a matt varnish, which also makes them suited for use in tables. When the wagon planks are planed, the deep black stripes remain visible, while a smooth surface is created! We also have other kinds of “reclaimed wood” such as Barnwood and Azobé ship planks.
