Patient restorers and makers of the finest antique, reclaimed and new wood floors and cladding.
Pushing the boundaries of what a handmade wood floor can be. Beautifully restored pieces of history, rare finds and exceptional new wood floors that outclass the rest. If you are a champion of the unique, the one off, the original then Woodworks is for you.
Not all new wood floors are created equal and we make no apologies for the fact that we regard our handmade floors as a cut above the rest. We’ve taken the skills and expertise we’ve acquired restoring antique floors and applied them to producing exceptional new wood floors – using only the finest quality wood.
It can take up to twelve stages to produce each handmade floor and as well as a choice of tone, texture, grain and detail and finish, we spend time on the smallest details because we know these are what set our floors apart. These are the heirloom floors of the future, for all project requirements.

Our antique and reclaimed wood floors are beautifully restored pieces of history, brought back to life by our craftsmen in Cheshire. These floors have been around for hundreds of years and carry with them all of the characterful marks that nature intended. If you buy a Woodworks antique floor you acquire something that’s a bit different, something that stands out from the crowd.
We have an international reputation for our skills in reclaiming and restoring antique wood. The antique woods we restore can be many hundreds of years old and we take this responsibility very seriously. What really sets our antique floors apart is the time we take to restore the original worn face of the wood, a 20 stage process that results in a luxurious soft patina, elegantly original and utterly remarkable. We celebrate imperfection such as rusty nail holes and weather cracks and work hard enhancing our Woodworks by Ted Todd Antique floors to ensure they look truly authentic.
These antique and reclaimed surfaces are very special materials, adding soul and beauty to any space. The woods we use in this collection all have a strong identity and are packed full of personality and patina. Expect to find vibrant secrets and hidden surprises within each plank; capturing a lifetime of adventure, history, and heritage. We’ve travelled halfway across the globe to salvage Teak from Javanese fishing boats and hunted down the finest Victorian floorboards, rare, unique and truly exceptional treasures. The characterful markings that point to former uses have been accentuated during the restoration process of these reclaimed pieces to capture the essence of their origins. Our team of craftspeople at our Cheshire workshops work to bring these personalities to life. They use a myriad of techniques to create what can be seen as works of art. Don’t be limited by how you can use these wonderful materials, walls and ceilings are just the start. Brand new editions to the Woodworks by Ted Todd Bold Surfaces portfolio include; Coburn, Tempest, Brodie and Fable.
Through our Carbonised portfolio we were the first company in the UK to introduce Shou Sugi Ban floors with commercial finishes. Since then we’ve expanded the collection to include more exquisite, subtle and elegant tones, all using reclaimed Swiss Pine and antique Elm. All handmade from start to finish in our Cheshire workshops. Shou Sugi Ban is a painstakingly intricate process of charring wood to produce deep and silvery tones. SHOU SUGI BAN: RE-IMAGINING TRADITION Woodworks’ Carbonised portfolio pays tribute to the ancient Japanese process of Shou Sugi Ban, the intricate process of charring wood to produce deep, silvery tones. Our craftsmen have been hard at work and have created five new additions to our Carbonised portfolio that are a step forward from the dramatically dark traditional options. The latest additions to Woodworks’ Carbonised portfolio are crafted in our workshops in Cheshire from the finest Swiss Pine. We heavily brush the wood planks after charring, leaving behind a beautiful pattern and texture. This process reveals the original tone of the wood, highlighting a distinctive silvery grey grain. Five subtle tones are available, aptly named Oyster, Moth, Lead, Granite and Quartz, all showcasing the interesting grain patterns that have married traditional Shou Sugi Ban and modern techniques. Available in boards up to 4m in length, these 20mm thick planks can be used as wood flooring, wood wall cladding or wood cladding panels. Our naked skin lacquer seals the floor with an invisible finish, to ensure that while the boards are hardwearing they have a very natural ‘unfinished’ look.

As the world becomes increasingly more urbanised, we all yearn to be closer to nature. An antique reclaimed wood floor provides a connection to the outdoors and the wonders of the natural world. The wood in our Rare Finds portfolio has already been around for hundreds of years, often originating hundreds of miles from British shores. We’ve traced and acquired wood from the Old War Office, reclaimed genuine Teak floorboards from former Dutch East Indies homes. The next chapter in its story is up to you. We would love you to see our Woodworks by Ted Todd Rare Finds. Book an appointment in one of our Design Centres via the Woodworks by Ted Todd website or call us today.
We’ve taken the skills we’ve acquired restoring antique wood floors and applied them to producing the finest handmade new wood floors. Each of our handmade wood floors is given a ‘personality’; a unique combination of pattern, colour, texture, width and finish. These floors have been handmade in the UK, using the very best European Oak, Douglas Fir, Larch, Pine and American Black Walnut.
Emulating wood floors that have been walked on for centuries, we’ve crafted our Aged wood floors to embody all the characteristics of our favourite antique wood floors. Floors in the Woodworks by Ted Todd Aged portfolio undergo a 24-month ageing process, drawing out the beautiful shape, texture and movement that make this French Oak so special. Both finish options are slow cured for a natural feel that is very durable. Choose from plank, chevron, herringbone and Parquet de Versailles formats, all with a 2-ply engineered construction.
At first glance these floors may look like the norm, but in fact they are anything but. They have all been lovingly designed and handmade at our Cheshire workshops and are not limited to the restrictions of factory-finished floors. Each and every application is air-dried over a number of days. This is a slow cured approach. The look develops slowly as each individual application is completed. The result is a unique floor that feels very natural and is also incredibly durable. Finally, uniquely these Woodworks by Ted Todd floors can be overcoated onsite, either as a handover program or part of a long term maintenance programme.
The skills in parquetry lie in the balance in the patterns you create. How the proportions work, how the patterns unfold across a space and finally how the finish complements all of this. The Woodworks by Ted Todd Parquetry portfolio brings together exquisite designs and strong architectural statements. Choose from the beauty of end grain, exceptionally proportioned Parquet de Versailles, classic chevron or our very own specially designed circular patterns.
The Woodworks by Ted Todd Superfine portfolio represents the perfect marriage between contemporary design, the finest materials and an extraordinary choice of delicate tones. Superprime Oak is subtle, clean and contains minimal knots, sap and colour variation. All finish options are slow cured for a natural feel that is very durable. Superfine is also available in a nature grade for a more lively appearance or an extra-long length superprime for the ultimate contemporary wood floor.
Statement floors with true modernity, these Superwide planks and oversize herringbone blocks add an architectural emphasis to any interior. All finish options are slow cured for a natural feel that is very durable. Woodworks by Ted Todd Superwide floors are engineered from nature grade European Oak and available in widths of up to 400mm - perfect for making a big impact in large spaces.
A remarkable invisible finish makes these skip sawn chevron, herringbone blocks and planks extremely durable. While the floor may have a worn look, the finish applied to the wood and a 6mm wear layer, ensures it is extremely durable. Choose from four natural tones, a unique copper finish or in-plank chevron and criss-cross designs. Floors in the Woodworks by Ted Todd Urban portfolio use European Oak used which is responsibly sourced and has all the FSC® certifications that you’d expect.
