I have put long leaf pine flooring from Mike Draper’s This Old Wood and Old Texas Floors in 4 of my houses so far. Each has been beautiful and added a tremendous amount of character and value to my homes. I have used vertical grain wood to barn wood and I LOVE it ALL. Mike is great to work with. His knowledge of the old woods is super helpful. You can’t go wrong with This Old Wood and Old Texas Floors beautiful antique wood flooring.

This Old Wood/Old Texas Floors has been nothing but a great source of beautiful old woods locally sourced in Texas. From weathered and worn wood, to high quality long leaf pine its always a trusted source for Kartwheel. I’m not usually one to share my source of material, but Mike being such an honest person and having such a good selection of material. I’ve sent many of folks his way. Thanks This Old Wood to continue to keep reclaimed material available.

Sincerely, David Clark, Owner/Maker, Kartwheel Co.


What a hidden treasure we found with Mike Draper and This Old Wood/Old Texas Floors. While making selections for our home remodel, we decided on wood flooring. After looking at everything from engineered wood, new solid hardwoods and reclaimed wood vendors we found exactly what we wanted at This Old Wood. We were lucky enough to visit the day they brought in a shipment of 7 inch wide long leaf flooring from a home in Waco. Mike and his crew did a beautiful job cleaning and getting the wood ready for our project. This week the floors were installed and they have exceeded our expectations….just beautiful. The pricing at This Old Wood is fair and competitive. The service is personal, friendly and top notch. We also purchased some wonderful trim pieces and had Mike fabricate a custom top for our entertainment center using reclaimed wood from an old Austin business. We highly recommend This Old Wood/Old Texas Floors and will use them for all future needs.

Sincerely, Susan & Paul Bushart, home owner


Old Texas floors recently helped us with our purchase of 550 2×4’s for our new high- end fitness facility and coffee bar. Mike was extremely helpful during the whole process and delivered exactly what he promised. Best of all, the wood looks beautiful.

I can’t say a bad thing about This Old Wood other than why arn’t they a little closer to me? My husband and I called Mike up about two years ago looking for some rustic looking wood to put in our new home. We wanted the old dancehall floor look and I was amazed that he had what we were looking for. Mike allowed us to come out to his barn one late evening when they were closed, who takes the time to do that for their clients anymore? Not only was he sweet on the phone but a great guy in person, very kind and understanding. I was unsure of a good installer and he recommended the best I was so pleased with the finished job! We are so glad we found Mike and his crew because we recently wanted to have a mantel made and we knew right where to go, This Old Wood. I don’t think there is a better place in Austin to go or a more caring person to get your wood from than This Old Wood and Mike. We will be going back for sure!
