Reclaimed Scaffold Board - All sizes - SANDED

49 reviews

The Board

A reclaimed scaffold board is both a functional and beautiful item, displaying all the rugged character of aged wood, but with the strength and hard-wearing qualities that a scaffold board needs to survive the rough and tumble of a building site. As such, they are ideal for a multitude of purposes, whether as flooring, cladding, shelving, furniture and more.

Item Specifications

This listing is for a sanded reclaimed board with two sanding options and three oiling options available (see below). For unsanded or styled reclaimed boards, please click back to our Reclaimed Scaffold Boards product category. For new boards please click here. Brackets not included with this listing - please see brackets here.

Grade: British Standard, kite-marked (highest grade available)
Material: Wood (pine or European whitewood)
Dimensions (approx): 225mm wide, 38mm thick, length as per options above
End Bands: Boards are sent de-banded
Item No: RC02

Sanding options

- Light (hand) sand: We give the board a light sand by hand. This takes out any lumps and bumps and leaves the board smoother than when it is unfinished. All hard edges are also smoothed off.
- Full (machine) sand: The board is drum sanded, which takes out any un-evenness and makes the board more uniform in appearance and thickness. It will still retain many of the characteristic dents and splits which make a reclaimed board what it is, but make it more suitable for furniture making.
- Please be aware that machine sanded boards, when oiled, will often finish a lighter shade than an equivalent hand sanded board. This is due to the the machine sanding process removing more of the dark outer part of the board, and also because it closes the grain more which means less oil is absorbed. If unsure, please do order a sample of each.

Oil options

We use Danish Oil, a traditional oil which is perfect for bringing out the natural grain of the wood whilst leaving a durable, satin finish. This is available in three colour options:
- Natural (light)
- Antique (medium)
- Jacobean Oak (dark)

We generally recommend ordering a sample so that you can make sure your preferred oil option is right for you.

Please note

- Please refer to our Product Notes page (click here) for advice on some things to consider when buying this product. We ask all customers to read this before purchasing.

Cutting service

We do not charge any extra to cut a board to a particular length. To make use of this service please add to your basket the next larger size of board to the size you require, for example if you would like a 55cm length board and an 82cm length board please add one 60cm board and one 90cm board.

We do charge for rip cuts to a particular width, at £1 per foot (30cm). For example, to rip a 300cm (10ft) board from 225mm wide to 180mm width, the cost would be £10 for this service. You can add this to your order by adding the Rip Cut product below - you will initially only be able to add 1 at £1, but when you go to your basket you can adjust the quantity accordingly (in the above example you would change the quantity to 10). Don't worry - if you choose too many or too few then we can always edit the order for you and credit/invoice for the balance.

You can then let us know the custom sizes you require at the basket stage. When you view your basket you should see an option to "Add instructions for seller" - please click on this and specify the required sizes. We'll see this note on your order and cut accordingly.


To purchase any of the above options in a smaller sample size please see our Sample Pieces.

How "reclaimed" is your board?

We all love rustic looking boards, that's why we're here after all! But one person's idea of rustic can be quite different to another. We want you to be completely happy with the board you receive and so we now offer a representation below for those who would like to specify exactly how rustic they would like their board to be. If you don't have a particular preference then please don't worry, we'll pick a board with plenty of character but still in great condition to use, one we would be happy to have ourselves.

Beautiful wood cut exactly to size. Makes fantastic shelving at a fraction of the cost of other options. So solid. Took a little while to dispatch,but I did order several boards, all custom sizes just before the Christmas rush. Arrived well packed and I'm thrilled with my shelves. Thanks#


The Scaff Shop

Hi Eleanor, Thank you for your kind review. Yes we did have a large influx of orders before Christmas, delays with deliveries were unfortunately inevitable at that busy time of year. Pleased to hear that you are happy with your boards, they do make great shelves. Many Thanks, The Scaff Shop

Easy to use website and very helpful customer service when enquiring when the order would arrive (takes up to ten days). The quality of wood is fab. I would definitely use The Scaff Shop again.

Shelves and countertop

I ordered various sizes so I could make up this display section in my shop. Was so good being able to have the lengths and depth exactly as I needed them. Very pleased and will be ordering more.

Good quality, very happy with them

Good choice of lengths and finishes. Taking one star off because they were delivered about 20 days after order was placed. When I emailed and asked when they will be shipped, they did it next day. Don’t mind the little wait but could maybe communicate it better.

Hi Anna. Thank you for this review and I would say it is very accurate. Yes we have had a massive influx of orders from the beginning of August right through to October which is why we decided to put a notice on our homepage of the website explaining that any orders placed will take longer than the average 2-10 days as we have been so busy with all these hand made items. However we are now back to our normal lead times and really appreciate your time to send in this review. Shelves look lovely by the way. Many Thanks The Scaff Shop.
