Ordering process

All our reclaimed barnwood furniture is handcrafted in Lancaster County and the surrounding areas by our local Amish craftsmen, using materials local to the area as well. Everything is crafted one piece at a time by hand and no two items are alike. Over time, the reclaimed wood has been exposed to different elements, which gives each piece its own unique characteristics from coloring to worm holes, nail holes, water marks, texture, etc. If you are considering purchasing a reclaimed barnwood table, please read some of the frequently asked questions below, including where to buy reclaimed wood furniture. If you still have questions please feel free to contact us.

2. What is the turnaround time when I place an order?
It can vary from item to item because some reclaimed wood pieces are made more frequently made than others, but it will range from 2 weeks to 12 weeks. Please remember the barnwood items are built by hand and if additional time is need we will be in contact with you.

3. Do you have a showroom?
 We do have a small showroom with  items for viewing , but remember most of the reclaimed barnwood furniture is custom-made per order, so we do not typically have a large selection of pieces for viewing. We do require appointments to visit our location, so please email us for our availability.

At the present time we do not offer a warranty on our products. Please keep in mind when you buy reclaimed barnwood furniture that it is subject to expansion, warping, cracking, shrinkage and hairline fractures from the natural flux in temperature conditions.

6. How do I care for my new furniture?
Most of the furniture is sealed with a water-resistant topcoat. For tabletops, please use a damp cloth to clean, not a heavy saturated cloth as it could leave water on the table and cause issues. Silicone-based products and any cleaning product with an ammonia base are not recommended. Please avoid direct sunlight and high heat areas of the home; these conditions can cause issues with warping and cracking in your furniture.

7. Does Old Barn Star ship the furniture?
