|Products Involved||Trestlewood's WeatheredBlend Barnwood Lumber is a mix/blend of Trestlewood's Antique Barnwood Lumber (Specification Sheet #7200) and its NatureAged Barnwood Lumber (Specification Sheet #7220.) Blended products are results oriented - they increase Trestlewood's ability to help economically achieve a look desired by a client by freeing up the strengths and inventory of multiple complementary product lines.|
|Species||Mixed Species. May include Pines, Douglas Fir and other Firs, Spruce, Larch, Oak, Elm, Hickory, Ash, Maple, Beech, Poplar, Cedar and others. Antique Barnwood is typically heavy to softwoods, with NatureAged Barnwood generally exclusively softwoods.|
|Source||Antique Barnwood: Barns, corncribs, stables, mills, homes and other buildings and agricultural structures from different locations in North America.|
NatureAged Barnwood: Naturally weathered to achieve a rustic grayish/brown appearance. Lumber that is laid out to weather comes from a variety of sources, including: i) lumber resawn from wood (timbers, lumber, logs) reclaimed from various salvage projects, ii) lumber cut from beetle-killed, fire-killed or dead-standing trees, iii) lumber cut from material which has weathered out of spec, and iv) new lumber.
|Standard Dimensions||a) Thickness: 1" (actual: 5/8" to 4/4") and 2" (actual: 1 1/2" to 8/4"); b) Width: random, 4" to 12"; c) Lengths: 1' increments from 4' to 16'. NatureAged Barnwood tends to be wider and longer on average than Antique Barnwood.|
|Moisture Content/Stability||Air-Dried. NatureAged Barnwood is generally more stable and less prone to shrinkage than is green lumber. Antique Barnwood is generally more stable and less prone to shrinkage than is NatureAged Barnwood.|
|Knots||Unlimited knots; some tight, some fallen out|
|Metal/Holes||Nails and fasteners are removed or occasionally cut flush or broken off. Antique Barnwood is more likely to have metal that needs to be cut flush or broken off than NatureAged Barnwood. WeatheredBlend Barnwood will generally have some nail holes and will occasionally have some bolt holes. Staining around holes is common.|
|Checking/Cracks||Unlimited as long as board is sound; end cracks to extend no more than 12" into board.|
|Surfacing||WeatheredBlend Barnwood includes a wide range of surfacing/textures. Antique Barnwood can be rough-sawn or smooth. NatureAged Barnwood is generally originally rough-sawn (circle-sawn or band-sawn,) but may have weathered rather smooth. Degree of weathering various from source to source. Antique Barnwood is often more deeply weathered than NatureAged Barnwood.|
WeatheredBlend barnwood colors can also vary widely. Common colors include browns, light browns, grays, light grays and combinations of browns and grays. Many boards have a mix of colors. Trestlewood can often sort for a heavy-to-brown or heavy-to-gray color range, but generally does not offer a color sort which does not allow for some latitude in color provided. NatureAged Barnwood generally is more consistent in color and other characteristics than is Antique Barnwood.
WeatheredBlend Barnwood lumber can have 1 fresh-sawn (or less heavily weathered) face and 1 or 2 fresh-sawn edges (i.e., the focus is on producing a product with 1 weathered "primary" face.) Where an application requires that both faces be weathered and/or that one or both lumber edges be weathered, Trestlewood needs to be made aware of this so that it can quote and sort accordingly.
|Weight||Depends on species mix. Typically, 2.5 - 3.0 pounds per board foot.|
|Appearance Variation||Antique Barnwood generally comes from a variety of sources. NatureAged Barnwood is produced from a variety of sources and has been weathered for different lengths of time. As a result, WeatheredBlend Barnwood lumber characteristics can be expected to vary from piece to piece and even within a piece. Trestlewood believes that appearance variations (no two pieces of barnwood exactly alike) are one of the selling points of this product line.|
|Target Mix||Trestlewood targets 50% Antique Barnwood and 50% NatureAged Barnwood in filling WeatheredBlend Barnwood packages involving random widths and lengths and otherwise standard characteristics. Specific width, length and other requirements will often change the targeted mix. For example, packages heavy to wide and/or long lumber or that put a premium on color consistency will generally result in an increase in the percentage of NatureAged Barnwood targeted. Target percentages apply to overall package quantities, not to each individual proposal line item.|
|Other||Both Antique Barnwood and NatureAged Barnwood (but especially Antique Barnwood) can be very brittle and may split easily. Special care, such as pre-drilling holes for nails, is advisable.|
