Aged wood that is well suited for rustic flooring, siding and beam applications
The American Beech tree resides in eastern United States. The wood is heavy, hard, tough and strong. The American Beech tree was not harvested on a regular basis until the advent of the chainsaw, therefore leaving large stands of beech groves to grow and flourish. Once the chain saw was in production, a large volume of old growth Beech trees were harvested to build barns and agricultural structures through out the East Coast & Midwest. As a result, a majority of reclaimed beech is sourced from “aged sawn” beams, joists, and boards versus hewn beams.
Primarily sourced from “aged sawn” beams, joists, and boards
Heavy, hard, tough, and strong
Light patina with flowing subtle grain pattern
Unique blend of color contrasting light-toned honey and slight tones of pink with amber brown grain highlights
Our Reclaimed Beech is sourced from East Coast and Midwest vintage structures that produce a distinctive character with a light aged patina and flowing subtle grain pattern. Each piece is milled from a combination of barn boards, beams, and joists, and is hand selected to produce wide plank boards with a delicate balance of sound cracks, checking, wormholes, and knots. This material has aged over time to produce a unique blend of color contrasting light-toned honey and slight tones of pink with amber-brown grain highlights.
