AS IS SANDED DOUGLAS FIR
AS IS SANDED DOUGLAS FIR
AS IS SANDED DOUGLAS FIR - The As Is Sanded mantel starts with a rough sawn brown or gray timber which is then cut to length and lightly sanded reducing the splinters but retaining the original golden brown patina characteristic of aged Douglas fir. The surface may have some degree of character marks which result from the nails and bolts we remove and checking resulting from air drying.

SAWN DOUGLAS FIR
SAWN DOUGLAS FIR
SAWN DOUGLAS FIR - A fresh sawn appearance is created by putting the timber on our horizontal band saw and removing the original face on all four sides. We can take an extremely bowed or twisted timber and create a perfectly straight piece although somewhat smaller than the original. The appearance of the final product will be similar to that of re-sawn green timber although it will usually retain some degree of character marks and checking in the surface. Material slated to be hand hewn or sanded can be saw sized straight first to facilitate installation. Bolt holes can be plugged prior to sawing to minimize the character marks. The sawn appearance works well with contemporary architecture.

ROUGH SANDED DOUGLAS FIR
ROUGH SANDED DOUGLAS FIR
ROUGH SANDED DOUGLAS FIR - An undulating, weathered appearance can be created using a special sander with a variety of sanding discs. We grind and sand the surface removing most of the original patina/paint and round the edges unevenly. This can then be sandblasted after installation to enhance the character. The sanding can be done on the timber as is, or the timber can be saw sized four sides prior to the sanding to straighten and provide uniform sizing.

HAND HEWN DOUGLAS FIR
HAND HEWN DOUGLAS FIR
HAND HEWN DOUGLAS FIR - Using broad axes, adz axes, draw knives, and special sanders we can create an authentic hand hewn appearance as if it was recovered right off the farm. The material may retain its original character with twisting and checking, or can be sawn first to create a perfectly straight piece prior to adzing. Applying our proprietary finish really enhances the antique character of this product.

SURFACED DOUGLAS FIR
SURFACED DOUGLAS FIR
SURFACED DOUGLAS FIR - A surfaced appearance similar to that on new lumber can be provided. Surfacing dry reclaimed timber tends to blow out loose knots when passing through the planer. This may require some doctoring on your part prior to the installation, filling the resulting holes. Alternatively, most beams can be surface sanded to achieve the same effect without damaging the knots.

HAND HEWN BARN BEAMS
HAND HEWN BARN BEAMS
HAND HEWN BARN BEAMS - We inventory a huge selection of authentic hand hewn barn beams which are salvaged from antique structures such as barns and cabins dating back to the 1800’s. The material is a mix of hardwoods, (primarily white oak), which the original builder would have harvested from the original forest adjacent to the building site. The beams are usually square, hand hewn on four sides and contain the original mortise and tenon holes and pegs. The beams will have an existing gray patina which can be lightly sanded to reveal a rich brown patina just below the surface.

SAWN BARN BEAMS - Barn beams were also created using a circular saw mill. Although the vintage might not be as old, like the hand hewn beams above these beams usually have a gray surface which can be lightly sanded to result in a mellow brown patina. The surface will retain the circular saw marks.

LIVE EDGE BARN BEAMS
LIVE EDGE BARN BEAMS
LIVE EDGE BARN BEAMS - Live edge barn beams were created by hand hewing two opposing sides of the tree, leaving the round exterior on the two edges, usually with the bark still attached. These were typically used as floor joist in the barns and cabins. Once the bark has been removed, the cambium layer is exposed and contrasts beautifully with the hand hewn sides. These mantels are typically created by cutting one edge off to facilitate installation leaving two hand hewn surfaces and one rounded edge. The availability of rectangular mantels is usually not a problem with this product.
