Softwood Resawn Mantels - Product Info
NOTE: If you are a Do-It-Yourself type (and would like to save some money!) you may consider purchasing an Unfinished Softwood Resawn Mantel and doing your own finishing. This document contains some Do-It-Yourself Tips from our in-house mantel guru:
|Introduction||When the first settlers moved into new regions of our expanding nation, they cleared small plots of ground for subsistence farming and used the felled trees for logs and timbers to construct homes for themselves and barns for their livestock. Because these resourceful settlers had to use what was available to them, they often did not discriminate among wood species--if the trees they felled were solid and durable they were used in the needed structures. It is in that same spirit of resourcefulness, economy and good stewardship that Trestlewood offers |
Trailblazer Mixed Softwoods Millwork Stock. Rest assured that the material you purchase will be the same mix of hearty North American species as was used by our great, great grandfathers more than a century ago.
|Species||Mixed Softwood. May include Pine, Hemlock, Fir, Spruce, Cedar, Larch, Douglas Fir, others.|
|Source||Barns, corncribs, stables, mills, homes and other buildings and agricultural/industrial structures from different locations in North America|
|Holes||Nails and other fasteners are removed, leaving occasional nail holes. Staining around nail and fastener holes is common.|
|Mortise Pockets/Notches/Holes||Mortise pockets and notches from the original joinery will be cut out by Trestlewood.|
|Knots||Unlimited; occasional loose or fallen out knots|
|Checking/Cracks||Trailblazer Mixed Softwoods Millwork Stock may have unlimited checking and cracking as long as the board is sound. End cracks will extend no more than 6" into the board.|
|Moisture Content/Stability||Kiln-Dried: Trailblazer Mixed Softwoods Millwork Stock is cut from stock which is generally very dry and seasoned and is then kiln-dried. The resulting lumber is much more stable and less prone to shrinkage than is green lumber.|
|Standard Dimensions||a) Thickness (net): 4/4"; b) Width (nominal): from 4" to|
12"; c) Lengths: 1' increments to 16'
|Weight||Depending on species mix. Typically, approximately 3.5 pounds per board foot|
|Appearance Variation||Boards can vary in appearance from piece to piece and even within a piece. The characteristics described on this specification sheet generally apply to each board's featured face. The opposite face and edges can differ from the featured face in texture, coloring, and other characteristics unless otherwise noted.|
