HalfBeams from spruce/fir/pine
HalfBeams solid oak
Just as solid beams and rafters, our HalfBeams are real, hand-hewn beams with the classic colour scheme of reclaimed wood. The weight reduction due to the sawn backside allows a quick and easy assembly.

When is ‚oldwood‘ considerd to be ‚old wood‘? How old are they really? How relevant is the actual age or does it depend on how wasted the surface is?
Thats excactely right! Sunburnt Boards, for example are sometimes really old (50-150 years), sometimes it only takes 20-40 years until they are weathered/sunburnt enough.
Handhewn wood – on the other hand side – can’t be any younger than approx. 100 years, since it‘s typical surface was done by hand & axe, when machines where not available.
Original hand-chopped wood (beams and hand-chopped boards) come from the time when there were no machine saws (sawmills / frame saws …). The round tree trunks were chopped into lumber by hand and ax into the square shape. That was the case until about 100 years ago, sooner or later depending on the region.
With the special “kiln-dried” version, the waste wood is “dried” for several days in a drying chamber at over 60 ° C, thus preventing insecticide infestation in the delivery condition. It is an environmentally friendly form of pest control.
However, we ask for your understanding that after this point in time, a possible new infestation is beyond our control and therefore cannot be ruled out.We therefore recommend preventive treatment against renewed worm infestation.
Reclaimed wood is called “rough sawn” if the original surface has been sawn off. This is done primarily on one side of the waste wood (e.g. cut bottom / top side of old wood beams). The rough sawn surface can be recognized by the lighter color.
The surface of the old wood is processed with a rotating brush head. As a result, soft wooden parts are released from the surface, the hard components remain and define a structured surface.
Reclaimed wood beams were originally used in commercial and residential buildings. The beams were connected to one another without metal but with bungholes and notches.
Notch-free bars are rarer and must be selected carefully. That is why the option ‚free from notches and bungholes‘ comes with a certain surcharge.
Beams and rafters were made by hand from tree trunks around 100 years ago. At that time this was not done by a machine, but only with diligence and perseverance.
Bars are available in thicknesses from approx. 10x12cm to approx. 24x26cm and in lengths from 0.5 to 13m. In addition, they have a rectangular cross-section and are not square – e.g. 14x16cm.
The indication of the beam dimension therefore always shows a certain fluctuation. See the description in your offer.
