Hand-Hewn Barn Wood beams reclaimed by hand from 19th century barns of Central Indiana. Early American craftsmen would drag large timber from nearby trees to the barn site where they would carefully score, and hew the round logs into square beams suitable for supporting the barn. These historic beams still have the original hand-hewn marks of the axe or adze. Later the craftsmen used saws. The rough cut saw marks make a great look as well.
These historic beams beautiful patina is enhanced after we carefully hand sand the beams to remove loose material. These beams look great without any finish or a light clear coat can be added to increase durability and reduce splintering.
Available in many sizes, every piece is cut to your length.
