    Wire Brushing burnishes and raises wood grain while highlighting the patina. We can use this method on genuine old barn siding, however old barn wood is often inconsistent in dimension, look and quality. For those that prefer a more consistent material we recreate the look of barn siding with remanufactured old patina boards giving a consistency of dimension, natural color and texture for a clean yet rustic barn board look.

    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.

    Our re-sawn timbers have a smooth 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. (See Behind the Scenes.) 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.
