QUALITY OF WOOD AND CONSTRUCTION
We take great pride in each and every piece that we make, from a single small pub table top to a large conference table. Each table is stained and sealed by hand in our workshop. We go over every piece to make sure it's ready to ship.

Our reclaimed wood is the real deal, from barns and homes built over 150 plus years ago.
We are very selective in our wood planks, choosing boards with saw marks and unique characteristics.

Each and every table top that leaves our shop has to pass my very high standards of quality control. Edges are sanded and filled to avoid clothing pulls.
We add a sub base of plywood and sand the underneath sides.
The wood is sanded so there are no splinter and we take care to fill holes and cracks for buyers.
TABLE BASES
Pipe bases are sprayed to cover scratches and lettering. We use 1 1/4" pipe for heavy duty sturdy support. We also work with a high quality steel maker who cuts no corners.

PACKING AND SHIPPING
Shipping is expensive and so are high quality packing materials. We take no shortcuts to ensure that your custom made piece that we spent many hours creating , arrives in excellent condition.

If we have not lived up to this promise, then you let me know and I will do whatever it takes to make it right.

Reclaimed wood tables made from salvaged barn wood rich with history of days gone by

So glad you found my shop! I am Audrey Jones, owner and creator of Fresh Restorations.

I was born and raised in the suburbs of NJ and graduated with a business degree from the University of Colorado in Boulder CO in 1982. Got married, worked for a big NYC corporation as an advertising sales executive ,had 4 kids and a very busy fulfilling life. Working, running and driving around from teachers conferences, to sports practices, games and dance recitals. I later started by own decorative painting business after taking many art classes.


A few years ago, while still working as a decorative painter and after raising 4 kids in the NJ suburbs, my husband Jeff and I ,"downsized" and moved to my family's Califon NJ farm. My father and grandfather purchased the 130 acres and century old farmhouse back in the early 1970's. I have fond childhood memories visiting the farm with my parents. Califon is a small rural town nestled in Hunterdon County, NJ. A bit of a transformation in my values and priorities took place while living at "the farm". Not truly a working farm, but lots of open space , cattle and a big old barn filled with bales of hay.

Although just 30 minutes west of the burbs, the change in lifestyle is noticeable. A bit slower, and more relaxed. I took on a new found appreciation for organically grown food, recycling , the great outdoors, hiking, biking ,winding back roads and good old USA country farmhouse style. People would just leave things on the side of the road , like old windows, doors, wood frames . I started searching for these, restoring and re purposing them and ultimately selling them.


Having been a decorative painting artist for over 20 years,it dawned on me that my most perfect canvas was all around me,in the wood of old barns. I'm passionate about reclaimed wood, restoring it and creating custom finishes. It all started by working with my carpenter friend to build a custom kitchen dining island for the farm house where counter space was much needed. We worked together to make the reclaimed wood top and put it on top of a recycled kitchen cabinet base.

Etsy as my sales and marketing platform, I started selling old windows as mirrors, frames as chalkboards and took a few photos of my new old reclaimed wood kitchen islands. I discovered lots of folk in the USA also have an appreciation for taking something old , rich with history and turning it into a useful functioning piece with new life.
Fresh Restorations was born. My new and third career, and I love it ! We have a small team, operating out of rented space from a local lumberyard, including barn wood removers, carpenters and wood finishers.


As a team we have created and sold thousands of reclaimed barn wood tables for restaurants , business owners and homeowners. Each one of us takes great pride in creating a well crafted , beautiful piece of furniture from wood that is over 150 years old that once was part of a vital structure in the old days.

With the help of creative, dedicated people who share my passion ,I have built a business that started as a thought create more counter space in the old farmhouse kitchen !

Our most recent milestone in 2017, was fulfilling and order for 125 tables for the Oakland A's baseball stadium Coliseum's Shibe Park Tavern.

Customer service is a priority and I welcome custom requests.

RECLAIMED WOOD CARE/FAQ/INFORMATION:
Wood from old barns, and houses go into transforming reclaimed wood boards into exceptional home, office and restaurant decor. Our products have a simple natural finish, color wash and sealer to keep the product looking and feeling as natural as possible.

For restaurants we take care to fill large holes so that food does not get trapped there.

Each table top is handmade to order. Due to the nature of reclaimed wood, there is variation in wood planks, color and texture. Any variation is acceptable with reclaimed lumber if the product is structurally stable. Character marks that can appear in reclaimed lumber are mineral staining, color changes, species changes, weathering, discoloration staining, nail holes, loose knots, tool marks, dents,thickness variations, splitting and mixed grain patterns. We urge you to view all that is available on the website to familiarize and understand wood variations.

OLD GROWTH WOOD CARE/FAQ/INFORMATION:
Old growth wood is simply that old growth. Wood planks are cut from fallen trees that are pine, white pine, fir and heart pine.
The planks are kiln dried to the lowest moisture point.

There are simple things you can do to keep your reclaimed wood tops and old growth tops looking great year after year.

*Prevent water stains
Immediately sweep the surface of top equally including dry areas with a wet cloth. Use a dry cloth to finish off to absorb more water. It's a good idea to use a coaster underneath glasses or coffee cups to prevent water rings from forming.

*Avoid placing wood tops in direct sunlight
Strong constant sunshine can sometimes change the color of wood . If you want to prevent this, use curtains or blinds to regulate sun exposure.

*Reclaimed wood tops should be kept a safe distance from direct heat sources such as fireplaces/heaters/radiators as the wood can dry out and cause cracks. A temperate stable environment is best.

*Maintenance
Regular dusting with soft cloth is recommended.
A soft damp cloth can be used to wipe down tops.
Furniture polish is not recommended.
Tops will have some shallow cracks in which some crumbs will fall. Simply using a small paint brush to extract crumbs can easily solve this issue.
*Sealer
We apply 5 coats of clear satin water based polyurethane to our table tops. Over time, you may wish to brush a thin fresh coat to restore finish.

WARRANTY INFORMATION
Wood movement and operation that can be corrected with common installation practices including minor joint cracks, and loose knots are not warranted.
We are not responsible for moisture damage, humidity damage, temperature, moisture and climate swings,minor warping and or sun damage.
