Timber Crafting Sneak Peek

Every cut made to an Arrow Timber is done by professional timber artisans. There is no computer-run CNC machinery cutting timbers, these are real traditional joinery techniques done with the finest powered saws and hand tools.

Structural Post & Beam Timbers

Decorative (Non Structural) Timber Features

When considering wood species and textures for your post and beam project, everyone uses different criteria to make a decision.

Some of you crave technical information, such as a cost-benefit analysis. Some of you will be making decisions largely on appearance. Some customers want the contractor to recommend a product. Without knowing anything about your project, I can offer you a catch-all recommendation:

Use Douglas fir in a roughsawn tex ture for the exterior, and a smooth texture for the interior.

Regarding the recommended textures, the logic is quite simple. Exterior timbers with a rough-sawn texture absorb much more stain or protective coating than a smooth timber will. This means less maintenance for you! For your interior, smooth texture will give you and your interior designer the most flexibility.

There are other options: Circle-sawn and band-milled timbers lend themselves to a lodge or Western ranch style of decor. Hand hewn texture will be reminiscent of old colonial buildings or old European structures as timbers were finished with a broad ax in times past. Smooth timbers can fit any decor. Either a rustic or old world atmosphere can be achieved with smooth timbers. It’s just that you will need to work a bit harder with your colors, flooring, lighting, and furnishings.
