America's heritage has stood in the fields and beside farm houses for over a century in the form of barns. Historic barns are becoming more difficult to find, and due to the increase in comercially zoned land are being destroyed. Reclaimed Barns & Beams reclaims the wood from these hand hewed, pinned barns that have stood the tests of time. It is our hope that we can transform this wood into vintage farm tables, chairs, ceiling beams, mantles and more. This will give us a chance to keep the history of these barns alive and with us for years to come.

It can be a crowbar, a hammer, or a chainsaw in my hand. I love the work. There is something exciting to me about being in these old barns. You never know what you will find or what someone else will create from what I find. The work is hard, tiring, and so very dirty, but I just love doing it. 

Reclaimed Barns & Beams provides lumber to those who create using historic wood that has a story.

Live Edge Wood: Chinkapin Oak, a species of white oak


Origins: This was part of a tree that was selected for removal by foresters at Morgan-Monroe Forest in Indiana.
Reversible: Both sides of of this slab have their charms so we have prepared both sides for display. One side shows more live edge, the other side gives more surface area.
Defects: There is a metal cleat that was put in to the slab to stop a crack from growing and it has been left.
Some tool marks from the cant hook that was used by the loggers have been left in the wood. (These appear as tears in a couple of places in the live edge part of the slab.) We all have our scars but the challenge is to make something beautiful out of them.
Treatment: Both sides have been stained with golden oak stain and both sides have also been sealed, including the live edge. Several cracks radiating from the spots where branches emerged from the tree have been filled with epoxy that was dyed with black ink. This helps to give a more flat surface as well as to preserve the wood.
