Re: Using old or reclaimed lumber

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If strength for depth limit is an issue, try using a Parallam beam,
sand-blasting the surface to imitate weathering or hand-hewing (depending on
the look wanted, and on the intensity of the blast), and staining it a
weathered grey or other color as decided by the architect.
