4x6x4' Oak / Mixed Hardwood Weathered Blocks - Product Info

In July 2010, contruction began on the Ruby Pipeline, a 678 mile natural gas pipeline stretching from Opal, Wyoming to Malin, Oregon. From the time construction began until it was officially placed in service one year later, a significant amount of wood timbers and blocks were used for crane mats and other functions in support of the construction activity.

Trestlewood obtained a large number of 4x6x4' hardwood timbers/blocks that were used for this project. These blocks may be used in either Weathered or Resawn Timber applications, but can also be processed into such products as Oak Weathered Lumber, Oak Millwork Stock, Trailblazer Mixed Hardwood Weathered Lumber and Trailblazer Millwork Stock.

Specification Sheet #6101 - Weathered Oak Timbers
SpeciesOak (May be mixed Red and White or all Red or all White Oak).
SourceBarns, corncribs, stables, mills, homes and other buildings and agricultural/industrial/construction structures and materials from different locations in North America
HC/FOHCWeathered Oak timbers are almost exclusively heart center timbers; usually moderate to very tight growth rings.
MetalNails, bolts and other fasteners are removed or occasionally cut flush or broken off inside the beam. Staining around nail and bolt holes is common.
Mortise Pockets/Notches/HolesMortise pockets and notches from the original joinery are common. Nail, bolt, peg and other fastener holes are allowed. The quantity and size of mortise pockets and holes can vary widely from timber to timber, with some timbers containing very few and others containing frequent mortise pockets, notches, peg holes and nail holes.
Checking/CracksWeathered Oak timbers generally have a check from the heart center to one of the faces of the timber. In addition, timbers can have surface checking and cracks, moderate butt checking and minor end splitting.
Moisture Content/StabilityWeathered Oak timbers are generally very dry and seasoned, and are much more stable and less prone to shrinkage than are green timbers.
SurfacingWeathered (degree of weathering varies); original timber surface was rough-sawn, but may have been worn rather smooth; surface degradation (water damage, surface rot, "punkiness") is common.

Color/AppearanceOak weathered timber colors vary -- common colors include browns (common for interior weathered timbers), grays (common for exterior weathered timbers) and combinations of browns and grays.
Appearance VariationWeathered timbers will generally vary in appearance from piece to piece and even within a piece. The weathering (amount, mix of colors, etc) and other characteristics of one face can be substantially different than the weathering and other characteristics of another face. Some weathered timbers are cut from larger weathered timbers, giving them one or more fresh-sawn faces. Such fresh-sawn faces can often be made to look less bright (and more weathered/aged) to help them blend in with weathered faces.

Note: Please study specification sheets to familiarize yourself with product characteristics and their possible implications for your application.
