Just in time for Thanksgiving…

For the past couple of months I’ve been working with a residential client on her sun-room addition. We started talking about rustic flooring, then moved on to paneling, trim and mantles for a two sided fireplace. By the time the details were worked out and measurements settled, the time frame for the project had become quite tight.

Thankfully, between our large volume of timber stock and the greatest team of dedicated craftsmen in the industry, we’ve now got the client’s order milled, finished, packed, and ready to go. It will deliver to her home today, just before our shop closes for the long holiday weekend.

These long planks of custom milled bead board (center and left) are waiting for their final coat of Tung Oil to be applied. The American Gothic grade was selected for the walls to complement the texture and character of the Settlers’ Plank flooring (right of image).

I was lucky to grab a few pictures of this gorgeous Settlers’ Plank Oak and custom milled American Gothic Oak bead board while our guys were busy hand-applying the tung oil finish.  The warmth, richness and character is undeniable.

Our Settlers’ Plank Oak is perfectly suited for a natural Tung Oil finish. The depth of color is enhanced by this matte, penetrating finish.

Hopefully when the project is complete, we’ll get some pictures from the client so we can share the final results.

Have a great Thanksgiving!
