The Great House Collection in the Cast Iron Series uses very old oak from 100 to 150 years old. These weathered planks have lots of natural cracks, knots, nail holes and variegated patterns and grain. Hand-cast iron plates are nailed to cover open knots following the 18th Century woodworking technique of "filling knots" as the planks remained installed in place. The color is arrived by an oxidation method that works within the tannin of the oak. This process changes the color and texture of the hardwood without any stains or oils. It is this process, combined with the weathered old growth planks that creates the most authentic looking reclaimed oak floor.
