The bold yet elegant look of antique wood beams complement both traditional and rustic styles and can turn any application into a majestic work of art. Truly one-of-a-kind, each beam was once an individual tree, felled and squared on the spot with a broadaxe and adz. Every beam has a variety of accents, character marks, and a rich patina and texture created from a century or more of use and natural weathering.
Reclaimed Beams come in three main styles:
Logs: one or two side hewn
Hand-Hewn Beams are the most popular and are typically used for ceiling beams, columns, trusses, furniture legs, pergolas, door frames, and mantles. The beams feature axe marks, checks, mortise holes and notches, hardware and rafter plate marks, nail and worm holes, etc.
Rough Sawn Beams are used for a cleaner, yet old-world appearance for ceiling beams, columns, trusses, furniture, headers, door frames, and trim and also cut into flooring, cabinet wood, and finish trim.
Logs with one or two-sided hewn were used originally for walls or as floor joists and can now be built into ceiling beams, walls, mantels, or milled for flooring, counter slabs, and furniture. They still posses the rounded sides of the original tree.
Barn wood siding has many uses in remodel or new construction including "as is" or skimmed to create a rustic or authentic appearance in exterior and interior siding or sanded for beautiful cabinets, flooring, ceiling boards and furniture. Each board is a work-of-art and showcases a century of more of weathering and character with a texture and grain pattern not found in new lumber.
