Our 100% authentic and antique reclaimed beam skins are made from authentic hand hewn or rough sawn beams harvested from centuries-old agricultural structures and historic factories from America’s heartland. The original unique marks in each piece show the time and effort that went into creating them so long ago.
AUTHENTIC WOOD FROM OUR NATION’S PAST.
Olde Wood’s antique reclaimed beam skins are made by hand and the timbers used to make them are meticulously selected to create the focal point of any project. Every piece will be custom cut, surface de-nailed, heat-treated, pressure washed, and kiln-dried to ensure stability and longevity of beauty. True beauty earned with age. Each piece is individually inspected and graded to ensure durability, preservation and long life. A variety of color options also assure a tasteful pairing with any residential, commercial, or retail project.
