Manhattan Beach Whitewashed Reclaimed Oak

This is a custom, whitewashed version of our milled reclaimed oak, inspired by the Manhattan Beach lifestyle.  This is a flooring material with a lot of character for anyone looking for a reclaimed material with a custom color.  Grain patterns showcase fine lines and movement, occasionally with knots and wormholes.  This oak is a sustainable product, re-using old posts and milling them down. Finish it roughly or smoothly, and seal it for a matte or gloss look.

Oak has long been one of the most common lumbers used for building, so reclaimed oak is easily found.  It can be one of the most beautiful woods to work with due to its grain pattern and character.  Oak has an open grain with large pores, which leads to its prominent grain pattern, and a coarse texture which can be kept for a more rustic look.  The graining is further accentuated with whitewash.

Wood is a product of nature, and therefore no two pieces are alike.  Please stop by or order a sample to confirm the exact look you want.

Color Range

This solid oak flooring option subtly reveals the colors typically seen in oak, but with a whitewash that feels right at home at the beach.

With reclaimed oak there is not even a need to whitewash — it’s naturally beautiful.

Finish and Texture:

This reclaimed oak has a milled face and is finished with a low VOC water-based polyurethane in either a satin gloss or matte finish.

Milled faced boards are sanded smooth, leaving traces of the original face and saw marks.  This provides a clean and elegant look, with still a rustic finish.


Oak has a straight grain, but the type of cut can greatly affect the appearance because oak has very large pores.  We are using a reclaimed product here, so we cannot always control the cut, resulting in a widely varying grain pattern.

Dimensions and Formats:

This reclaimed oak is available only in solid wood.  The thickness is 3/4″ and the plank width is 4.5″ minimum.  Standard lengths are 1′ – 7′ but can reach 10′.

Installation methods:

Installation methods vary based on wood format and site conditions, but solid wood floors are typically nailed, or nailed and glued, to a plywood subfloor.  When the planks are wide, gluing and nailing is the preferred method.
