Most of our products are made from recycled wood that came from either a house or barn. The reclaimed items we make come from buildings we have taken down. Each and every reclaimed piece is at least 100 years old. Most of the barns and houses were built from 1860 - 1920's.
The oldest pieces are typically what is called "hand hewn". This is where they used ax to cut the bark off the timbers and square up the logs. The other type are "saw cut". These pieces were either out of a newer building (1920's) or the owner was rich and had access to a saw mill. These pieces are distinguished by the swirl / saw blade marks on the wood.
On a number of pieces we will cut the top off, sand, stain and varnish them. This gives a nice flat uniform finished piece. Only the cut areas are stained to match the original front and bottom. The color on the hand hewn section is from time and weathering.
We try to leave as much original as we can while keeping it's integrity sound. Each piece is cleaned, sanded, and kiln dried (if req'd) to 160°-170º at the core temperature for 12 hours. We finish with three coats of sprayed commercial grade flat finish polyurethane, except gray.
If you go to our Facebook page HTTPS://WWW.FACEBOOK.COM/JOEL.NIES.9 you will find many photos of different barns and houses we have taken down. If you look at some of them carefully you can see how and why a number of our pieces have funky notches out of them, holes, dowels or protrusions. We try to take pictures of each piece of history coming down. Unfortunately, it won't be long until most of the barns are gone. There are also a lot of photos of customer's finished projects on Facebook.
