First custom job! (Pics added)
« on: June 12, 2019, 10:18:28 AM »
Had a custom home builder who Iíve trimmed a few house for before, contact me about milling some old barn beam. They are ornamental only and he needed a flat surface to go tight against the ceiling. He said he had trouble finding someone who could cut over 20í long. Interestingly they came all the way from Canada, so I donít know if theyíre easier to come by up there or if he just has connections up there? All I know is that theyíre a long way from home.
They were roughly a 10x10 and I cut the top down to 9Ē. Was able to get them all planed out for the most part but a couple places I barely skimmed them. Spent an hour denailing and got almost all of them except one beam had a ton of really small ones. He said he was paying for a new blade so I just went through them and it still cut straight. Not sure what kind of wood it was but it didnít seem too hard.

Have any of you guys built box beams out of the caps of something like this? I got some that range from 3/4Ē to 1 1/2Ē thick. They look really cool with the hand hewn look and Iím trying to figure out a way to utilize them!
