Wormy Chestnut Reclaimed Wood Wall Plates

reclaimed American chestnut wood wall plates product category photo

We offer premium reclaimed wormy chestnut wood wall plates made in-house from hand selected lumber.

Once a dominant tree in the Appalachian forest, the American Chestnut was decimated by disease in the early twentieth century, and by the 1930’s the species was wiped out. Today, chestnut lumber can only be obtained by reclaiming wood from old buildings. Over the years we have stockpiled a nice supply of this species, and are glad to offer chestnut wood outlet covers and light switch covers in our store. Chestnut lumber has an open, porous grain texture and a beautiful warm color tone. Often worm holes are present chestnut lumber, and in addition to the patina of the reclaimed wood, they add interest and complexity to the wood grain. Not all chestnut plates will contain worm holes.

Our wood wall plates are shipped sanded and unfinished. This will allow you the flexibility to match your existing woodwork or to finish your plates to your desired appearance. Antiqued stainless steel screws are included with your order.
