Using a broadaxe to square logs is an ancient technique for hewing round timber into beams. The hand-hewn surface shows the marks of countless blows of the axe, giving it a lively appearance. Modern sawmills have wiped out these traditions of old craftsmanship.
USE: Their unique appearance makes original hand-hewn surfaces ideal for use as components, for paneling or for the exterior facade of buildings. The reclaimed wood creates a warm ambience that fits well in a rustic atmosphere but also blends in with modern elements.
