What are oak wagon boards?

The oak wagon shelf comes from freight wagons located at abandoned stations throughout Europe. Some wagons drove for up to 100 years with different loads. If the oak wagon wood is of good quality, we give it a second life. Our goal is to let the history of the wood shine through in the product.

Machining of the wood

After treatment, oak wagon parts are good to use for, for example, a table, a cabinet or a floor. At Hout met Historie you can choose from four different treatments.

Planed oak wagon planks

The operation you see most often with the oak wagon plank is planing. First, dirt and nails are removed. Then we plan the wood on four sides. The result is that the darker grains are emphasized and the unique pattern is clearly visible.

Brushed oak wagon planks

Brushed wagon shelves have a look all their own. After removing dirt and nails, we brush them thoroughly. In this way, seams and cracks, which develop over the years, become clearly visible. Brushed wood has a rough appearance with lots of relief.

Unprocessed and original

It is possible to buy unprocessed oak wagon planks. The wood is delivered to you immediately after it comes from abroad. Old wood from train cars in original condition, including dirt and nails.

Composite wagon parts

Composite oak wagon planks are extra wide: 25 to 40 centimeters. This is because we glue narrow sections into a wider plank. There is a lot of demand for this for window sills, side tables and stair treads.

This wood is ideally suited to interior design. A old oak floor gives character to a home. Plus, the planks will last for decades.

Oak wagon planks remain a natural product. It works after, fortunately minimally. This is because old wood is already quite dry. That makes it suitable for use in the kitchen or bathroom. Rooms where it can be more humid and the temperature sometimes fluctuates.
