Creatively preserving our heritage and recycling God's gift of nature.





The most versatile product we carry is our Reclaimed Oak. We salvage most of this product from family barns built between 1830 and 1900 in the Ohio/Pennsylvania/Virginia region of our country. Reclaimed Oak is an exceptional green building material, as every component of these barns is salvaged, cleaned up and recycled in our line of Reclaimed Oak. The Woodshop of Texas offers reclaimed oak flooring, hand hewn beams, stairs, and vintage trusses. 

To salvage Reclaimed Oak, we begin by taking the siding off the sides of the barn; this product is great when used on ceilings and walls. The unique character that 150 years of weathering will do to wood is impossible to reproduce. We then disassemble the beam frame. Most of our Reclaimed Oak beams were originally hewn (whittled) by hand with a broad ax or an adze.

The barns were put together by hand using mortise and tenon style construction which is evidenced by the mortise pockets and the peg holes in these beams. We also mill these timbers into Reclaimed Oak Flooring which is rich in color and character. The mineral streaking in the oak along with the worm tracks and the mortise and peg holes make this product a distinctly different look that only this Reclaimed Oak can offer.

Oak is already a very hard wood, but curing for 150 years in very cold Pennsylvania winters and hot summers make this product virtually petrified. Reclaimed Oak has the versatility to be used straight out of the barn or milled to a clean finish, and the material can be used anywhere in your project.
