Where Quality Meets Craftsmanship


Albany Woodworks is a pioneer in the antique reclaimed lumber industry, and the premier manufacturer of quality, virgin-growth Longleaf pine flooring, rustic beams, plantation shutters, and custom doors. Our innovative process, including the development of the necessary tools derived from a previous era in lumber manufacturing, has made the company what it is today. The floors produced by Albany Woodworks are gorgeous and durable.

Albany Woodworks uses old world craftsmanship and solid materials to make your design a reality. From castle doors to French doors, period or traditional, any style of door for entryways and exterior or interior installations can be achieved in Antique Heart Cypress and Antique Heart Pine, in addition to other fine woods. Plantation shutters, raised paneling, cabinetry, custom windows, porch flooring, custom siding, wall paneling, wainscoting, and architectural moldings can also be created.

Antique Heart Cypress, known as the “wood eternal,” is exclusively from reclaimed virgin growth materials that were lost during the frenzy of logging that lasted from the late 1800s until the last “great grandfather” trees feel in the mid 1920s. There are several names for cypress, including Tidewater Red, Louisiana, Gulf, Southern Cypress, or Bald Cypress. For thousands of years, the forests and basins were undisturbed, allowing these stately giant trees to slowly grow to heights of 80-150 feet with trunks as large as 15 feet in diameter.

Heart Cypress is known for its beautiful coloration and unsurpassed rot resistance and has been revered by craftsmen and wood workers for more than a century. Albany Woodworks utilizes these and other woods, including NuHeart Pine and American Hardwoods (Red Oak, White Oak, Cherry, Hickory, Maple, or Black Walnut), for your projects. The company has been bringing new life to reclaimed antique lumber for homes, businesses, and historic restorations for many years.

Whether your project needs are for new construction or remodeling, you can have the splendid solid wood, wide plank flooring you have always wanted. During your visit, take a tour of the original Albany Woodworks mill and see the origins of your order in the beam yard, a storehouse full of rare, well-seasoned, full-length antique timbers ready for production at your request. You can bring your plans and get advice from CEO Richard Woods and his friendly staff.

If you are remodeling an old home or building a future family heirloom, Albany Woodworks can help you create the unique environment of your dreams.
