Sourced from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, these wood boards were used to line boxes for growing mushrooms, giving them the name “mushroom board.” As mushrooms grow, enzymes from the composting process slowly remove wood fibers from the boards, leaving the wood extremely textured with a dark brown patina.
Softer woods like hemlock are favored for mushroom board. Its rugged appearance, rich color tones, and dark knots lend itself to accent walls, ceiling treatments, cabinetry, door making, and other residential and commercial projects.
Mushroom board lumber varies dependent on what is available in individual barns and wood sources. Inventory is cut to desired specifications upon request.
