Antique Rough Sawn Beams originate from timbers that were cut with water wheel and steam-powered circular sawmills of the 18th and 19th centuries in the United States. We harvest these remarkable beams from antique barns throughout North America. Once the beams are removed from the barn, we pressure wash and kiln-dry them to prepare them for installation. These are gorgeous beams with weathered, aged patina, and circular saw marks are perfect for almost any rustic design.
Most of the antique rough sawn beams that we provide are square but have variation in face dimensions +/- 1”. These beams are offered as unfinished or prefinished. Briwax prefinish colors include Tudor Brown, Ebony, and Limewax.
Common sizes are:
12"×12" (check availability)
Lengths range from 6’-30’ and longer (check availability).
Antique rough sawn barn beams contain a wide range of variance in the amount of notches, mortise holes, peg holes, nail holes, color variation, etc.
