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.
Colors range from light brown sandy tones to dark brown tones. Beams that have been exposed to the elements will turn gray in color. This grey from exposure is quite often inconsistent. We usually wire brush and sand the beams to remove the grey and bring the beams to a natural brown. We can also apply a light finish to the beams
