ORIGINAL HAND CHOPPED RECLAIMED WOOD BEAMS / RAFTERS

BEFORE 1900, BEFORE THE INVENTION OF SAWMILLS, IT WAS BACKBREAKING WORK FOR CARPENTERS TO HANDMAKE ROUND LOGS INTO A SQUARED BEAM WITH A SPECIAL WIDE AXE.
EACH BEAM BORE THE INDIVIDUAL SIGNATURE OF ITS CARPENTER INSIDE.
EVERY SINGLE BEAM WAS MADE INTO SOMETHING UNIQUE WITH ITS NATURAL PATINAAND SIGNS OF USE OVER BYGONE CENTURIES.

JUST LIKE THE BEAMS OFFERED A ROOF OVER THE HEAD OF THE INHABITANTS OF THE HOUSE BENEATH, THEY ALSO GAVE MANY A WOODWORM A HOME.
THIS GIVES ALMOST EVERY RECLAIMED WOOD BEAM AN UNMISTAKABLE AND UNIQUE APPEARANCE.
