"With the term «plunks», in construction can be indicated as much flat wooden surfaces or curves on which decorations were made that reproduce inscriptions, emblems and ornaments, as well as the typical format in which the wooden boards intended for the realization of floors and walls are divided.
The ancient plunks, therefore, are boards that are recovered from floors, beams or other wooden artifacts and are destined to form the first or second patina (lower plunks) of building material. Depending on the destination of the material, the antique plunks are then glued on counterbalanced wooden bistrate supports or worked with procedures and techniques derived from craftsmanship.
To form boards for parquet or other wooden floors , the recovered material, cut into boards of about 7 mm, is then combined with other woods. The "lived" part of the plunks (upper plunks) is then used for the realization of beautiful floors in first patina, that is not repainted and therefore particularly precious, as the authenticity of their beauty is guaranteed by integrity.
Made of oak, chestnut, elm, larch or fir, strong woods and remarkable qualities, ancient plunks can be of various sizes and, despite the passage of time, maintain unchanged the typical characteristics of warmth and uniqueness of ancient wood. Not to mention the unique sensations that only properly treated antique wood can convey, with its smoothness, its smell and its unique veins."
