    Barnwood Shiplap Options

    If you want a Barnwood Shiplap product you can generally choose between lumber that was salvaged with the shiplap already on it or barnwood lumber that weathered without a shiplap and was then reclaimed and run into shiplapped product.  There are advantages and disadvantages of each type of barnwood shiplap product.  Advantages of each type include:

    Advantages - Shiplap Run Prior to Weathering

    Advantages - Shiplap Run After Weathering

    Over a year ago, Trestlewood decided to try an experiment with its NatureAged product line.  We had a shiplap profile added to some new lumber and then laid the shiplapped lumber out to weather.  The results were encouraging.  We now have some 5/8" thick x 4.75" face NatureAged Shiplap available for sale.  This approach gives us the ability to create a nice natural shiplap product at a lower price point than when the shiplap milling is done after weathering.
