Reclaimed Wood Kitchen Bar Tops

Reclaimed wood kitchen bar tops are artisan crafted to retain the salvaged wood’s visible knots, cracks and nicks, creating a truly unique design rich in textural details.

Reclaimed Wood Beams for Bar Tops

Reclaimed countertops are crafted from antique barn wood floor boards, beams and siding. Heavily distressed reclaimed wood tops are normally crafted from floor boards and siding. Reclaimed wood beams may have nail holes and insect scarring, but the aged character is less apparent than counters made from barn siding or flooring.

Reclaimed Oak Wood Countertops

Reclaimed Oak Wood Countertops by Grothouse
Reclaimed Oak Wood Countertops by Grothouse

Reclaimed Oak Wood Countertops radiate in rich, rustic charm. The wood exhibits an extremely unique character from hundreds of years of weathering. This look is nearly impossible to reproduce. Reclaimed Oak is also commonly referred to as Antique Oak.

Using Reclaimed Oak for your countertop is an environmental contribution because it is a recycled material. The reclaimed oak wood used by Grothouse to craft wood countertops is from dismantled antique Pennsylvania Barns. Each wood board is inspected and carefully juxtaposed to create a visually pleasing surface.

Designing Reclaimed Oak Wood Countertops

Countertops crafted in Reclaimed Oak make a naturally stunning focal point in any space. While Reclaimed Oak countertops can be custom crafted for any style kitchen, we typically see them in country, rustic, and farmhouse style kitchens.

About the Designer: Monica works with her clients from the earliest conceptual stages of their project design through to the final walk through. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Columbus College of Art & Design and is a Certified Master Kitchen & Bath Designer (NKBA) and a Certified Remodeler (NARI). Monica has over 25 years of experience in the residential construction industry and joined J.S. Brown & Co. in 2002 as a designer and sales consultant.

A Tip from Monica: It’s very tempting to follow trends, instead discuss your needs and budget with your designer and try to make decisions based on your personal tastes, budget, and practical issues like durability and maintenance concerns. Your home should reflect your style, not just what you see on television.

Magnum Brass Countertops

Anvil™ Magnum Brass Countertops
Anvil™ Magnum Countertops

The Anvil™ Magnum finish is made of real metal particles that result in a brass-like countertop appearance. Magnum brass countertops are appearing to be the most popular out of our eight options available since our recent introduction of Anvil™ metal countertops.

Designing Magnum Brass Countertops

Magnum countertops are identical to real brass countertops in look, but embrace the benefits of wood countertops. Some of the many benefits of Magnum countertops is that they are warm to the touch, can be used in curved applications and complex shapes, can feature any Grothouse edge profile, and can include any of our custom options.

Because of their design flexibility, Magnum countertops can be custom crafted for any style space in your home. The Magnum finish is made of real metal particles and as a result the countertops can develop a patina overtime that adds to the character and charm of the surface. If you would like to keep the countertop looking pristine, it can be sealed with our Durata® waterproof and permanent finish.

The Anvil™ Magnum finish can be applied to any wood specie or an exterior substrate for outdoor use. Below is the Magnum finish on a Reclaimed Oak wood counter.

The Magnum metal finish can be applied to the entire countertop, or it can be applied as an accent. Below is a Bubinga wood counter with a Magnum finished edge.

Reclaimed Wood Tables

Reclaimed Wood Tables crafted by Grothouse are made from 100 percent real reclaimed, heirloom quality lumber. The wood used is predominately from eighteenth and nineteenth century Pennsylvania barns. The natural imperfections in reclaimed wood lend history, character, and beauty to any style design, from modern to industrial to traditional to rustic.

Reclaimed Wood Tables | Features

Reclaimed wood tables by Grothouse can be crafted for any desired use, whether you would like a reclaimed wood dining table, table top, coffee table, restaurant table, end table, etc. They can also include a variety of features to add function to the space. The reclaimed wood dining table featured in this blog post was designed by Lobkovich. The Grothouse team worked with the designers, J. Paul Lobkovich and Emily Neifeld, on the design of the table to include a multitude of features.

Reclaimed Wood Tables for dining
Reclaimed Chesnut Wood Table designed by Lobkovich

This reclaimed wood table can double as a dining area and a kitchen island. It has eight drawers, perfect for storage and organization. The table top is 1-3/4 inches thick and crafted of antique reclaimed chestnut in flat grain construction. The table is 50 inches by 98 inches and 37 inches in height.

Reclaimed Wood Table with Electrical Outlet
Reclaimed Wood Electrical Outlet Covers

One important feature was that the table had electrical outlets. Grothouse prepared the table for the outlets on the inside and outside of the drawers. In doing so, a one leg drilled with a hole was used so that wiring could be fed to each electrical unit. On the exterior, Grothouse crafted custom matching outlet covers of the same reclaimed wood to minimize the appearance of the outlets. On the interior, shallow outlets were used that featured USB plug-ins for easy access to charge phones and electrical devices.

Reclaimed Wood Tables with Stainless Steel Table Support
Stainless Steel Table Support

To help with lateral strength required to support a table of this size, a metal “X” was designed to mount to the underside of the table. The “X” was made of stainless steel and unlacquered brass and designed to complement the La Cornue Range and custom hood.

Reclaimed Wood Tables supported by Solid Wood Legs

The table is supported by solidly constructed reclaimed wood legs crafted out of the same chestnut wood as the table top.

Reclaimed Wood Tables with Simple Edge
1/8″ Roundover Edge Profile

The table top is complete with a 1/8 inch Roundover edge profile on the top horizontal edges, bottom horizontal edges, and vertical corners.
