  • Hand-hewn beams provide a distinctive period look. They were the normal before the Industrial Revolution, when circular saws took the place of hand tools.
  • White oak, a very hard wood that does not rot, is a common choice.
  • Brushed original hewing marks provide a unique look full of character.

Both stylish and versatile, reclaimed wood beams can be put to use in a variety of ways to enhance an interior living space.

  • Mantels: Reclaimed wood beams look good in just about any living room setting, often mounted above a fireplace or just below a flat-screen TV. Whether the interior design utilizes traditional, modern, or contemporary décor, a reclaimed wood mantel will add the perfect finishing touch.
  • Shelving: Looking great just about anywhere you place them, reclaimed wood beams make excellent shelves, as their natural wood grain contrasts well with the decorative items you’re likely to place on them. They’re ideal for photos, candles, and other décor and work well in home bars for spirit and wine bottles.
  • Other: Reclaimed wood beams are a dream product for DIYers. They can be cut down to make unique pieces of furniture, serving as table legs, coffee tables, and much more.


Not only do reclaimed wooden beams work well in decorative roles, but they also make excellent architectural pieces. Considerably strong and durable, reclaimed wood beams add a unique aesthetic that can transform a room’s appearance.

  • Ceiling Beams: Hand-hewn wood makes for perfect ceiling beams in both new and refurbished buildings. The rustic appearance and old-world charm found on each hand-hewn beam goes a long way in providing a one-of-a-kind atmosphere.
  • Indoor Posts: Taking the natural wood look a step further, reclaimed wood beams are the perfect design element for people looking to create a modern farmhouse or western aesthetic. Their natural aged wood grain stands out and enhances a building’s look like nothing else.
  • Porch Posts: Reclaimed wood beams can also be used as porch posts, giving your outdoor living space a stunning appearance. These attractive design elements offer both the functionality you need and style you desire.
