We’ve crafted our Aged European Oak wood floors to purposefully embody all of the characteristics of our favourite antique woods. This is new wood that has been carefully aged over time, granting a traditionally elegant feel to your projects.
All of our Aged floors are slowly seasoned for 24 months before we begin any handcrafting. This important ageing draws out the phenomenal shape, texture, and movement which makes this oak so special. These woods are where we honed our Woodworks ‘house style.’ Our ability in which we bring out the natural undulating texture is unparalleled across the globe.

Modern heritage textures that pay homage to centuries old originals.
Combining an organic and natural aesthetic with contemporary elements, these exclusive Woodworks textures capture the modern yet timeless vibe evoked by vintage woods. Meticulously crafted using advanced engineering techniques, every aged texture faithfully reproduces the characteristics commonly associated with antique flooring. We have three significant Aged Textures, encompassing several time-worn qualities, whilst each possessing distinct characteristics that set them apart from one another.
The overall aesthetic of this texture is wonderfully organic and pleasantly irregular. The initial sawn marks that span the width of the board are intentionally subdued, resulting in a hit-and-miss naturally ageing appearance. This effect, known as “worn hit & miss,” emulates the natural aging of a surface sawn floor.
This material undergoes shrinkage through extended seasoning, giving rise to an undulating, rolling texture. Elevated and irregular knots are gently exposed, while all edges undergo soft rolling.
This seamless technique blends each wooden element smoothly into the next, achieving a cohesive look.
An example of this texture is Velentre, Aged collection.
This particular floor is flat sanded to give a more refined & elegant look. On the wood’s surface, only very faint traces of cross saw marks remain.
Through extended seasoning, the wood’s surface undergoes a contraction, resulting in an evocative undulating and rolling texture. Raised and irregular knots are thoughtfully treated. Edges are meticulously hand-rolled this imparts a much more pronounced look of naturally worn floor. A smooth surface combined with worn edges typifies a more tailored aesthetic.
An example of this texture is Brantwood, Aged collection.
The wood’s surface showcases far more captivating undulations, characterised by an abundance of natural contours and fluidity. Every board boasts its unique shape, seamlessly connecting each element to another.
This distinctive variation in each board harks back to the inherent diversity found in genuine antique floors of the 17th and 18th centuries. Floors that possess this hand worked texture mirrors the intricate movement observed in antique or reclaimed flooring, paying homage to the enduring legacy of centuries-old originals. Embodying the true hallmark of Woodworks craftsmanship.
An example of this texture is Arley, Aged collection
