Baummer Sawmill reclaims and recycles authentic antique beams. The character in this reclaimed wood has a patina that offers color that has taken over a century to obtain. Each hand hewn beam has its own history that will add warmth and character to your room for years to come.
Tony has perfected the process of creating a custom box beam; replicating the look of antique beams at a dramatically reduced weight. As authentic antique beams become increasingly harder to find, these box beams have passed the test of discerning quality with designers and builders across the country.

The process of reclaiming old, authentic barn beams, logs, and siding into precision-milled and kiln-dried wide plank flooring is all done by hand at Baummer Sawmill. The first step is de-nailing and removing any metal from the raw material. The wood is then sent through the Wood Mizer to be milled to a thickness of one inch, and a width specified by the customer. After milling, the raw flooring is kiln-dried to ensure that all moisture has been removed from the wood. Running the raw flooring through the edger machine provides a straight-edged board in preparation for the tongue and groove edging that is added by the moulder machine. The moulder also finishes the board by adding back relief to the bottom of the flooring in order to stabilize the floor and prevent cupping. Each board is then carefully hand packed for transport to the job site.
