Joist and Rafters

Old growth timbers come from structures such as barns, homes and factories that have stood for well over a hundred years. These buildings have become no longer usable in their present condition and instead of demolishing them to take to a landfill, we carefully disassemble them and remill the lumber into usable building products such as flooring, wall paneling etc. By using reclaimed wood that was harvested over a hundred years ago, we are lessening the damage to valuable ecosystems and reducing the destructive over harvesting of the new wood plantations and forests. 

Hand Hewn

Hand Hewn Beams were fallen logs, hewn into shape using a broad axe known in its time as an 'adze', which lends to the term of hand hewn sometimes being referred to as 'hand adzed'. Originally, shaping a log into a beam with an axe was the only method.

Resawn

Tindall's offers custom cut resawn lumber to have the exact size you need with no waste. This is a popular service for many of our customers that enjoy building their own custom jobs.

Old Original Resawn

Sawmills were introduced in the mid 1800’s to save time and money by mass producing square beams and lumber. They used large round saw blades that would leave circular saw marks on the logs. These saw marks, along with hundreds of years of “weathering”, give these beams a smoother rustic appearance.
