RECLAIMED WOOD BEAMS
Reclaimed woods are a magnificent choice for exposed beams and
adding structural integrity and depth to any room. Reclaimed hand
hewn wood beams are being used in many custom homes for the unique
warmth and sense of history that only old reclaimed wood can bring.
Most of this antique wood
came from old growth forests, and it is often harder and denser than
new growth wood. It is less susceptible to the effects of moisture
and temperature changes. The real reason, however, that so many are
seeking out recycled wood is that it just cannot be matched in
beauty and character.
Especially prized are the hand hewn beams
which are often used as reclaimed wood in new home construction,
remodeled homes, and commercial spaces. These old used wood beams
come in sizes that are unmatched in today's lumber yards. Old
antique lumber is also a dry wood; it is much less likely to twist,
warp or shrink. These aged wood beams feature deep, beautiful
colors, and the rich patinas they display can only be bestowed by
The Woodshop of Texas offers custom finishes
for our recycled antique wood beams, including: distressed, rough,
smooth, chamfered, hand distressing, and European sculpting.
Reclaimed wood is the perfect choice
for both indoor and outdoor exposed trusses, adding historic
character and charm to any aspect of your project.
The Woodshop of Texas also offers complete
truss assembly. In
our milling facility, our experienced craftsmen are able to assemble
your exposed beam trusses to your specifications, whether you prefer
the exposed steel plate hardware truss or a truss where there is no
visible hardware. View gallery of Reclaimed Oak trusses.
Depending on the size of
the truss and the circumstances at your job site, we are usually
able to ship trusses completely intact and ready to lift into
place. In some cases, we will disassemble a few joints to make the
truss easier to ship, but also very easy to reassemble once onsite
and quickly install.
