Reclaimed Lumber And Live Edge Tops

New to our counter top family are our custom reclaimed wood counter tops and live edge tops. The professionals at Sprague can expertly craft either option and have a variety of sources from which to collect solid wood material for both products. Both our live edge and reclaimed wood kitchen counter tops are limited in both species of wood and what our suppliers have available. If this is a product of interest to you, please call the shop so we can discuss the details!

Below are the descriptions of the two types of reclaimed lumber categories we currently use to craft our custom reclaimed wood counter tops.

Antique Native New England Softwoods

Some of the material we use to produce our reclaimed wood kitchen counter tops is taken from antique spruce, fir, white pine, and hemlock timbers that have aged for over 100 years. This vintage look comes in varying thickness boards and random widths from 3″-12″. The “dirty face” is the original exposed face of the timber. This lumber has most likely been recovered from aging industrial buildings in New England. These 3×8, 3×10, and 3×12 timbers have spent the last 125 years of their life as structural joists: overseeing the rise and fall of America’s industrial era in New England.


*Reclaimed New England softwood tops have a wide variety of colors and character. This is not something we can control as history has left its unique mark on every board. Therefore it is important to understand that the colors and distressing of each reclaimed board in a reclaimed top will vary.

Reclaimed Vintage Barn Oak

Our Reclaimed Barn wood countertops are made with vintage reclaimed barn oak in varying widths from 3″-9″ after milling and sanding they finish between 1 1/2"- 1 3/8" thickness. We automatically fill all nail holes and cracks with black epoxy so that spills don't end up in your silverware drawer. On request we can also leave these unfilled for a more rustic look.

Character Grade White Oak Countertops

Do you love the Rustic & Reclaimed Wood look? Enter Character Grade White Oak!

The character grade white oak countertop is a more rustic looking countertop, complete with knots & cracks that we fill with black epoxy to maintain and highlight these character traits, making each "Rustic" white oak top, unique and exclusive! We select the most visually interesting boards and use them in achieving a "one and only" look, focusing on creating an aesthetically balanced masterpiece! Currently, the only wood species that we stock regularly in the character grade is White Oak, but we are open to making them in any of the species we offer if and when it is available. Just note that lead times may vary depending on availability of adequate lumber. These tops are more economical in price than the reclaimed wood tops, as their origin is from harvested lumber, rather than from dismantled beams in old barns or houses, which can be significantly more expensive.

*While we have more control over this process, Sprague Woodworking is still working with the limitations of what lumber is supplied by our partners. We cannot guarantee any specific features in a given counter, only general appearance of tones, with a blend of character blemishes.
