Our reclaimed antique box beams 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. Olde Wood Limited®’s antique reclaimed box beams 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 and made, surface denailed, 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.

PLEASE NOTE: Box Beams are priced by the linear foot (LF). The species used to create our Box Beams is based on the wood that was used to build the structure. So in layman's terms, we are using what the farmer used to build his barn.
