Hand hewn. Using a broadaxe to square logs i s an ancient technique for hewing round
t imber into beams. The hand-hewn sur face shows the marks o f count less
b lows of the axe, g iv ing i t a l ive ly appearance. Modern sawmil l s have wiped
out these t radi t ions o f o ld cra f t smanship.
Due to their unique appearance, original hand-hewn surfaces are either reinstated as load-bearing elements or used for wall coverings, ceilings and
for making furniture. They convey a warm feel and are suitable for antique surroundings as well
as modern elements.
Beautiful exterior facades,
interior panels for wall & ceiling claddings,
as 3-layer panels for doors and furniture construction
These p lanks come f rom the outer
c ladding of o ld farmhouses and hay
Wind, ra in and sun have shaped their
co lor and appearance over decades . When
reprocessed and c leaned, they are an
eye-catcher. Depending on the in f luence
of the weather and the type of wood, the
color pa let te ranges f rom dark brown to
l ight brown to grey tones .
Original floorboards. The charm of o ld f loorboards l ies in
the fact that they have been worn,
c leaned, used and shaped by count less
generat ions .
As d i f ferent as their appearance i s the i r
or ig in: they come f rom warehouses ,
s tab les , publ ic and pr ivate l iv ing spaces
and br ing their unique his tory with them.
Floor boards finished for reuse, either solid or as a 3-layer floor, for walls, ceilings and
as a visible surface for furniture. Original flooring is also a sought-after
surface for wall cladding.
