The reclaimed planks originate from cheese makers in the Netherlands and are over a hundred years old. They are wonderfully rustic, each with their own individual patina - some with small and some with larger roundels, the markings left from where the waxed cheese wheels sat and ripened on the shelves.
We have lots of lengths and quantities in stock, please get in touch before purchasing online to check current availability.
The boards are priced at £25 per running metre ex vat (£30 inc vat)

These boards originate from The Netherlands. My Dutch friend and antique dealer John, sources antique pine boards from different cheese makers in Holland. Each consignment is therefore different in its markings and colouring.
The boards were used as shelving by small traditional cheese makers to store the waxed cheeses on whilst they matured but the E.U in their wisdom has decreed that cheeses are no longer to be ripened on wood for hygiene reasons. This seems a shame as wood is said to have antibacterial properties but their loss is certainly our gain.
Used in the home, for DIY and interiors projects, wood is a wonderfully versatile material but these boards are particularly attractive due to their pale colour and unique patination. As with any antique pine, there are far fewer knots compared to the modern day fast grown spruce. The boards have nicely rounded edges due to so many years of use and some have beautifully chamfered corners.
We still have some boards remaining from an earlier consignment that have a darker, richer colouring and sometimes more prominent markings.
These boards are available in in two lengths
Approx 290/300mm wide x 20mm thick and are in lengths of:
1.8m @ £40 (£48 inc VAT)
2.6 m @£58.33 (£70 inc VAT)
