All boards are 175mm wide x 28mm thick with a Central Crown Row and Quarter Sawn edges. We sell "as is" for £40.00/m2. Or we can clean detritus off, de-nail, bring to a single width and thickness from the back - before kiln drying. Please ask for costs.
We kiln-dry every board we sell.
However, we specialise in retaining the Original Age, Texture and Patina on the old faces of the boards This is done by Hand DA Sanding each board individually. See our website section on Hand Sanding and Textured surfaces.
Bow Street Magistrates Court was built in 1881. It has held and dealt with the likes of Oscar Wilde, The Pankhurst’s, Dr.Crippen, The Kray Twins and General Pinochet. These are the Original Top Quality Floorboards laid in 1881.
The “London Board” was a very particular specification used only in the best houses in London. The boards were the first cut or yield from a tree. Each board MUST show a Central Crown Row down its centre, with straight Quarter Sawn grain to either side. This grain cut ensured the boards were inherently, naturally stable, so would not twist or warp when installed.
