Quality Resawn Timbers Create Exceptional Antique Flooring

Why Not Get Your Wood Floor at a Big-Box Retailer?
If you can find 10-inch, wide-plank, 16-foot-long pieces of wood that are not bowed or cupped at a big-box store, by all means, buy it. That’s what Sarah Londerville, co-owner of Manomin Resawn Timbers, says in this video about Manomin’s quality.

You’re not likely to find such big, long, wide, high-quality boards at the new-wood retailers, and they certainly won’t be the gorgeous, unique reclaimed wood you find at Manomin Resawn Timbers

What You See is What You Get.
Manomin is proud of our attention to detail. The reclaimed wood product you see in our showroom, at the home shows we attend (come see us at the AIA Minnesota Convention for Architects and Designers November 9-10 or the Midwest Home Show Nov 18-20 in Minneapolis!), and the reclaimed antique wood samples you’ll see at our dealers is exactly what gets delivered to your home.

Manomin Resawn Timbers mills its wide-plank flooring from reclaimed, antique lumber and timbers from 19th- and 20th-century structures, old barns, warehouses and factories. This antique wood has a warmth and patina only found in reclaimed wood. Manomin also offers reclaimed wood paneling, timbers, box beams and mantels. Antique lumber inspires a fresh and innovative style for your home, office or business.

Quality Processes. Exceptional Antique Wood Flooring.
Mark Clasen, co-owner of Manomin Resawn Timbers, explains in the video how most of Manomin’s reclaimed wood material is re-sawn on-site into whatever dimension you need. Then it’s put into the kiln to re-stabilize. Even though the timbers have been drying for 100+ years — we still want to make sure our reclaimed antique wood is down to the right moisture content. It’s all part of our quality process. From there we run it through the straight-line ripsaw, plane the backs, run it through our moulder and defect it.

By following this quality process, we ensure that your Manomin Resawn Timbers reclaimed wood product will all be useable when it arrives. No waste. And we guarantee every floor. If you install your Manomin reclaimed antique wood floor the way we direct you to install it, we know there won’t be any issues. We have exceptional success with our reclaimed wood products.

Watch the video for more details and a glimpse at our operation. Then come to our show room at 15152 Freeland Avenue in Hugo, MN to experience our reclaimed wood for yourself. We look forward to meeting you.
