Reclaimed Antique Rough Sawn Wood Beams Description:
With refined rustic appeal, antique rough sawn beams hold teeth marks left behind from the saw blade as the wood was first milled. Our customers love the warmth and aesthetics produced by antique rough sawn beams wherever they are in a space. Previous to the invention and mass production of steam With the introduction of the railroad and steam power in the mid 1800’s, local, regional and national sawmills sprung up all over the country, producing square cut lumber and beams that saved immense amounts of time and money. Most antique rough sawn old barn beams were cut with a large circular blade that left an interestingly textured surface that, upon aging, creates a great patina surface that looks smooth from afar, yet has plenty of character. When settlers came upon the great hardwood forests of the Mississippi, Missouri, Tennessee and Ohio River Valleys, the local mills would saw any and all trees being felled from land clearings into usable beams and lumber. Many of the original old barns and buildings built from these old barn beams were made from whatever the mill or lumber yard had to offer at that time, be it southern yellow pine shipped up the rivers by steamboat, a large variety of mixed hardwoods from local clearings or one or two species from a local grove that was recently felled. Incidentally, the structures that were built from these old barn beams hold quite a variety of woods and dimensions, indicative of the times. Antique Rough Sawn Beams reclaimed from old barns and old structures detail the history of this country from the Civil War to World War I, imbuing the story of a country that, although established, was still trying to find an identity and place in the world. Any project using reclaimed antique rough sawn beams carries a part of that story and reflects it into the space created.

Acclimating wood productsProper acclimation of wood products prior to installation is essential to a succesful finished product. Always allow plenty of time after recieving any wood product for the material to properly and completly acclimate to its new envirenment. This is typically accomplished in a week or two by placing the material as close to its final installation area as possible. HVAC systems should have been running prior to material arrival and set at normal living conditions for a proper acclimation of the wood products.CalculateArea size: square feetPlease use numbers only
