Reclaimed Scaffold Board - All sizes - SANDED

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.

Brackets not included with this listing - please see brackets here.

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.

Reclaimed scaff board kitchen shelves

We drove from near Minehead to The Scaff Shop in Frome to see first hand the products So glad we did - their showroom is well worth seeing - tastefully set out & demonstrating all sorts of ways to use scaffold boards Both Jack & his staff were polite & welcoming & happy to spend time helping us make our decision We opted for 2 six foot lengths sanded and with a natural finish Although they did not have any ready Jack kindly offered to finish sanding and then treating some boards he was working on while we waited so that we could take them away with us - in the meantime one of his colleagues (Simon I think) made us each a hot drink & gave us the option to take a seat in some comfy chairs Before we had chance to finish our drinks - Jack had sorted out our boards for us! As for the boards themselves they look great in our kitchen They are supported by hanging brackets & allowing for the vagaries of the walls of our 100 year old house they were easy to put up Really pleased that we discovered The Scaff Shop

Fantastic product and service!

I bought reclaimed hand sanded boards with a Jacobean finish for shelving and also a console table. All boards were cut to size I required and sanded along with the great finish. Everything came quick and perfectly cut and finished ready for me to put up. Absolutely superb service and product and I would definitely buy from here again.
