RECLAIMED BEAMS from reSAWN TIMBER co.
rough sawn and hand-hewn reclaimed oak and pine beams serve not only as unique feature pieces, but also come with a rich and varied history. this aged wood is ideal for the creation of rustic mantles, shelving, structural posts, and trusses.
reSAWN provides beautiful, reclaimed barn beams in the raw – including original hand-hewn pieces. hand-hewing is the process of transforming a tree trunk into a squared up beam. traditionally the broad-axe was used for scoring and for hewing larger pieces of lumber.
Reclaimed beams go thru the typical reclaimation process of denailed and power washing. no finish is needed for this wood since it has been naturally oxidized over the years to produce a tough, weather resistant “skin”. common character marks include circle sawn kerf, mineral staining, color changes, weathering, checking, nail holes, knots, notched out pockets and heavy patina. thicknesses tend to vary slightly.
