French oak railway wagon boards, partially finished as a great step towards easy re-use. We saw them down to approx 2cm thick, retaining the surface with worn patina. This surface is then mechanically brushed and burnished, with typical marks, knocks and even burns therefore attenuated into characteristic “worn” features. Typical board dimensions approx: length 2.6 metres (8ft 6 inches) x widths 15cm to 17cm (6 to 6.75 inches). Also re-used for partitioning and wall cladding. A shop fitters’ favorite too, as shown on these photos in a major Paris fashion store.
