Our Mixed Hardwood Hand Hewn Beams are a mix of various hardwoods. When these beams were made, they took whatever trees were available in the area and used those to make their beams. This is why many barns are filled with a variety of locally sourced hardwoods. This may include some or all of the following species: Elm, Hickory, Maple, Ash, Oak, Beech and others.
Hand Hewn Beams are probably the best representation of history in reclaimed wood. These are beams that were cut by hand not machine. Generally a special tool called an "Adze" was used to hewn a round log into a square beams one small piece at a time. The unique marks are different on every beam depending on the hewning technique of the person making the beams.
Hand Hewn Beams generally come in square sizes: 6x6 - 12x12. Due to the square size we can cut the back face of the beam to make it shorter on the sides i.e. 8x8 can be cut to 6" sides and 8" face, but it cannot be cut to 8" sides and 6" face without cutting off one of the original faces.
