Woodworks by Ted Todd

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.

Antique & reclaimed

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 wood 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 and care we put into every board. These are floors that have history locked into every burr and grain, and our craftspeople at our Cheshire workshop take extra care to respect marks created by centuries of use. The 20-stage process leaves our antique oak and elm with an elegant patina and a remarkable original look that celebrates the imperfections of time.

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.

Rare Finds

Never to be repeated wood. 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. NEW TO WOODWORKS RARE FINDS We travelled almost 5,000 miles to reclaim a history-packed Burmese Teak from South East Asia.
