Project Description

Builders of the past used material that was readily available and around here, redwood and doug fir reigned supreme.  Our collection of select structural doug fir beams, come primarily from old bridges or large dwellings.  Many of the ends are stamped “Dense Structural,” a grade the old mills burned into the ends, signifying to the buyer few to no knots and a dense grain structure.  Grey with patina, often dotted with bolt and nail holes, these beams would make eye catching exposed beams or have them milled into one of a kind bar tops or siding.  These old growth reclaimed beams are impossible to replicate given the size of the trees cut down to make today’s lumber.
