Resawn Oak: Refined to produce a timeless artifact that is rich in patina, texture, and character
Resawn Oak Beams are milled from a combination of Aged Sawn and Hewn beams via a band saw. An antique resawn beam provides a refined appearance that minimizes the rustic characteristics common is both hewn and aged sawn beams such as deep adze marks and distinct kerf marks. Once the beams are de-metaled and cleaned, each beam is carefully milled via a wood-mizer band saw, which produces a fresh cut face that displays a combination of old growth grain and aged color with residual reclaimed character such as oxidized nail holes, bolt holes, mortise pockets, rafter notches, and seasoned checking. Our antique re-sawn beams come from old growth trees, and have aged over time to produce a product rich in patina with a refined texture.

Arc Wood & Timbers works with an intricate team of deconstruction subcontractors and barn busters to procure and refurbish the highest quality of aged sawn beams available throughout our historic rural landscape. Our Aged Sawn beams come from carefully dismantled barns through out the Midwest and New England area. Each beam is carefully culled, surface de-metaled, power washed, and refined to produce a timeless artifact that is rich in patina, texture, and character. Common characteristics include seasoned checking, oxidized nail holes, bolt holes, mortise pockets, rafter notches, and worm holes/tracks.
