Beautifully Flawed: Rustic Grades in Demand

Posted Jun 27, 2013 by Banks Staff

Years ago as a response to market demands for ‘character’ in hardwood lumber, Banks Hardwoods began producing ‘Rustic’ grades of lumber. From what had initially been sporadic inquiries, we have seen the demand for this type of product grow to become a regular part of our business over the past decade.

The primary species we offer in a Rustic grade include Cherry, Hickory, Hard Maple, Red Oak and White Oak. Although mainly a 4/4 product, we have worked to offer this specialty product in other thicknesses as well.

You’ll find more information and sample images of our Rustic species at Should you have additional questions, please contact your Banks Hardwoods sales or customer service representative for more information.
