Accent Walls & Paneling
ADD DIMENSION TO YOUR AESTHETIC WITH OUR AUTHENTIC AND CONVENIENT PANELING PRODUCTS
The look of reclaimed lumber is often imitated, but never duplicated. Choose from our wide selection of antique lumber to give a piece of Americana a second life. Corral board, rafter stock, and barn board are the mainstay of our paneling products, with a variety of custom milling options to suit your project. Our Nature’s Patina barnwood in a box combines a decades old natural patina with the convenience of modern milling—all boxed in roughly 20 square foot bundles and ready to ship. For our Core Elements line, we add finish to boards milled from the cores of reclaimed beams for unmatched authenticity. Specialty hardwoods can be custom milled to your specifications for a look that is truly your own.
Sun, wind, rain, snow, and plenty of time collaborate to create the gray tones in our corral board. Of all of our products, none more truly represents the iconic rural Montana landscape, with its miles and miles of fence lines, interrupted by the occasional outbuilding or corral. The available dimensions are defined by what fences are made from: 2” x 6”, 8”, 10”, 12”. From those, we can mill it smaller to fit your project.
Over decades, the joists and rafters of warehouses, schools, homes, and other buildings take on a rich toast-to-tobacco brown patina. What once served as a structural component can now lend a look to your home that only time can create.
This material comes from agricultural structures across North America. True barnwood, it once sided a barn or granary, and therefore exhibits a wide range of brown and gray colors within or among boards. While it is usually about an inch thick, barn siding was generally rough milled with material that was readily available at the time of the barn raising, and so our supply reflects these nuances of species and dimensions.
We stock red and white oak, which have been salvaged from old barns and warehouses that were ubiquitous in the middle and eastern regions of the US. We offer paneling with the original aged patina or old face, skip-planed to reveal some of the bright grain beneath the surface, or freshly milled for a smooth appearance.
To hew a log is to transform the naturally round log into a timber, with either two or four roughly flat surfaces to yield two-sided or four-sided hand-hewn, respectively. Before sawmills and lumberyards were common, craftsmen used hand tools such, as broad axes and adzes, along with hard work and skill to turn logs into timbers. This arduous work left signature adze marks on the beams, which not only add unique character and authenticity to the product, but also a nod to the lost art of hewing by hand. Because this material was crafted by hand from locally available logs, the dimensions and species vary.
Perhaps best loved for the nuance it adds to French wines, we appreciate the warm golden hue of our sustainably harvested old growth French Oak. This hardwood has low porosity, high density, and high tannin content. While not reclaimed, the French have managed their forests such that each felled tree is replaced with a seedling. Our oak is PEFC certified (the worldwide equivalent to FSC certified) to help maintain healthy, old growth forests for generations to come.
In an effort to further reclaim the reclaimed, we add finish to boards band-sawn from the cores of joists, rafters, and beams. These cores exhibit some of the same characteristics as our other reclaimed lumber, like tighter growth rings, nail holes, and stability, but also provide the modern convenience of a finish that is ready to side your home or clad your interior walls in a range of colors. While many try to replicate the look of reclaimed with new wood, our core elements line begins with stable antique lumber for unmatched authenticity.
BARNWOOD IN A BOX
Sun, wind, rain, snow, and plenty of time collaborate to create the gray tones in our corral board. Of all of our products, none more truly represents the iconic rural Montana landscape, with its miles and miles of fence lines, interrupted by the occasional corral or outbuilding, from which this material comes.
Warm toast-to-tobacco browns make up this color palate, thanks to authentic barnwood and rafter stock from agricultural structures, warehouses, and schools from across North America. What once served as a stud, joist, rafter, or siding could now lend a look to your home that only time can create.
If you seek a more eclectic scheme, look no further than our Yellowstone Blend. Here we combine the material from Glacier Gray with that from Bridger Brown for an edgy and expanded color range.
A blend of red and white oak, this material earned its original patina from decades in an agricultural structure or warehouse from the Midwest and Eastern US. Colors will range from light to rich browns with some warm gray tones.
