Examples of Wire Brushed Timbers in use:
We can brighten the finish on an “old patina” piece in varying degrees leaving as much or little of the old look as you wish – sometimes we sand down to fresh wood. We can also sculpt the timbers making an undulating surface and easing edges for a soft look.
Example of Sanded Timbers in use:
First three photos are of the re-sawing process, top left photo is old patina before re-sawing. Our re-sawn timbers have a fresh band sawn finish. Each piece is checked to see that it is suitable for sawing. Before re-sawing anything it is first scanned with a handheld metal detector and absolutely all metal is extracted. The outside “jacket” of the old beam is sawn off and fresh wood faces are exposed. Care is taken that the final product comes off the mill straight and square.
