Reclaimed wide pine boards – brush-sanded
Reclaimed wide pine boards – brush-sanded on their upper surface in our workshops to give a unique softened finish. This is a consignment of “cheese boards” with intriguing provenance, because these old pine shelf boards were used by a cheese-maker for storing and maturing the cheeses in caves underground. When they became surplus to requirements they are rejected after so many years of use, so we have reclaimed them for re-use as thick floor boards, partitions or wall cladding, or for rustic furniture-making. Their upper surfaces are slightly worn by the cheeses sliding over them over time, thereby providing character and patina, and for this consignment we have lightly brush-sanded their upper surface. The photos with the “honey” colour are boards that have been brush-sanded. Truly reclaimed boards from a French Comté cheese-maker in the Jura region of France, the timber is believed to be “Sapin des Vosges”, a slow-growth spruce. We can supply them either straight-edge, or for an extra charge we can mill tongues and grooves. Metric dimensions approx : lengths 230cm x width 32cm x thickness 35mm. Imperial dimensions approx : lengths just over 90 inches (over 7 ft 6 inches) x width 12.5 inches x thickness 1.38 inches. Large stock available.
