Natural Patina Circular sawn Barn beams – Beams & Timbers Products
Our Natural Patina Circular Sawn Beams are reclaimed from Barns across America. Theses barns were built in the late 1800’s to early 1900’s. The advent of transportation made it easier to get from the sawmill to the building site. The specie of the wood didn’t matter to the folks building the barn and that is why you find a wide variety of species in Natural Patina Circular Sawn.
We take each beam and carefully remove the old nails, pressure wash to remove the dirt build up over the years and bring out the natural patina that can only occur over time.

Our natural patina circular sawn beams are reclaimed from old barns and industrial/factory buildings all around the US. Their durability and aesthetics make them perfect for most types of construction projects.
Since these timbers were felled in the late 1800s to early 1900s, they still bear the circular saw marks typical of milled woods at that time. Early sawmills use water or steam-powered circular saw blades. These types of saw blades leave behind ring-like blade markings on the wood’s surface. This, in turn, creates a rough texture in the wood’s graining patterns. That’s why they are also called rough sawn beams. Unlike hand-hewn beams, however, circular sawn beams have a much cleaner and more even look.
But one of the most prized characteristics of these types of reclaimed beams is their natural patina. When untreated wood is left exposed to the elements, it develops a naturally weathered surface known as patina.
Since each wood has different levels of exposure to the rain, sun, and wind, each tends to have completely unique patinas. Their colors can range from gray with notes of silver to very deep browns. Add to that the nail holes, and other markings that tell the story of the wood’s rich history, and you get beams and timbers that are one of a kind.
Our natural patina circular sawn barn beams also come in a wide variety of species. The folks who are building barns in those days didn’t really care about the type of wood they use. That’s why you’ll see both softwood and hardwood species thrown into the mix. Our softwood timber mix usually consists of white pine and hemlock. While white oak, red oak, and hickory make up our hardwood mix.
Natural patina beams reclaimed from old factories, on the other hand, usually come from specific species. This includes douglas fir, and heart pine. Since they’re used in industrial buildings, they are often larger in size than the barn timbers.
All of our reclaimed natural patina woods are surface denailed and lightly power washed to remove dirt and expose the natural patina. We also heat treat them to get rid of any potential bugs.
Beams that will be installed against a wall or ceiling will have a clean-cut for easier installation. Posts, however, can be left with 4 sides exposed. We also ship our timbers raw so you can enjoy their natural patina or apply your preferred finish.
