This is lumber that has been reclaimed from barns primarily in the southeast region of the United States. It originated from historical barns or structural bases of buildings built during the Industrial Revolution. Antique oak is very hard and very sturdy material. The coloring is what sets this material apart from the pine blends. It instantly adds character to any space. The species of antique oak skins are usually a mixture of red and white oak with color tones of grey and warm brown.
