Antique Tobacco Oak ExposedGrain™ Flooring
Like the look? See something similar:
This antique oak’s previous life as siding boards for tobacco drying barns provided conditions for a good cure of the tobacco leaf which also provided for nice preservation of the oak siding; an ExposedGrain™ floor will be smooth; we have removed as much of the weathering and color as possible to show off the rich grain of the antique wood along with a few character marks to attest to the floor’s previous life; the minimal character lends this floor to more formal applications.
