Our custom cut thin wood was originally the floor of Chicago’s famous Ice Fire building, previously the Harris Marcus Group’s high end furniture business. During the Winter of 2015, a massive warehouse in Chicago’s Bridgeport neighborhood caught fire. It was so cold outside that as water was sprayed onto the building, it froze almost immediately, leaving behind a beautiful ice-encrusted structure. Fortunately, we were able to reclaim the flooring, so now we’re able to offer our customers an exclusive opportunity to have a part of history in their living room.
We provide thin wood for projects small and large alike. Our team of custom woodworkers, led by Atis Trezuns, are nothing short of miracle workers. Check out some of his work below.
The thin wood tiles are made to interlock for a random look when completed. Installation requires that each tile be applied using liquid nails. Tiles can be precisely cut down to size in order to fit specific dimensions. We’re able to cut our wood using a combination of a circular saw, jigsaw, or multi-master tool.
Our wide thin wood comes from a beautiful thoroughbred farm in Louisville, Kentucky.
As the look of reclaimed wood has grown in popularity over the years, many manufacturers have started designing and selling faux reclaimed wood. But when you get close to it or touch it, you’ll instantly know it’s fake. That’s where we differ, because all of our thin wood is 100% authentic. Then, it’s finished and sealed with a matte finish for that perfect, smooth feel.
We understand that not every project requires the same look or feel, so we offer a variety of cuts. So, outside cuts will have a more rustic look, but will still be sanded smooth, sealed and finished. Whereas, middle cuts will have more of a natural oak coloring, which will vary based on the species of lumber.
Wide thin wood comes with three tape strips already attached to the back of the plank. Simply peel off the paper backing, apply to the wall and you are finished!
*For an extra secure hold, you can go over the wall with a heavy pressure roller, but this step is optional*
