We work with reclaimed oak (red/white) and chestnut. The wood we get varies in thickness but we've found for the most part it's around 2" allowing us to get a 1-3/8" to 1-1/2" thick countertop thickness commonly but can work with suppliers to locate thicker wood for up to 2" thick countertops. Nail holes, checks and other character come in varying degrees as well so you'll need to have an open mind but if you do you'll love reclaimed woods look.
Things to consider with reclaimed wood.
- Lead times can be 4-6 weeks.
- Color WILL vary.
- Thickness is not certain.
- Amount of character WILL vary.
