In the heart of our woodworking haven, where passion meets precision, we at Bingham Lumber take pride in presenting our hand-hewn wooden beams, meticulously crafted in our on-site millwork shop. Each piece is a testament to the artistry and dedication of our skilled craftsmen, ensuring that your furniture not only meets but exceeds your expectations. Let’s look into the world of bespoke design and discover the endless possibilities that come with these wooden beams and the furniture they create.

Historical Roots

Hand-hewn beams trace their origins to ancient woodworking traditions, with craftsmen using basic tools like adzes and axes to shape raw timber for construction, leaving a legacy that spans centuries. Much of the lumber we source was originally processed and hewn generations ago with these same methods, and they are evident on each piece of reclaimed wood within our mill. We strive to continue that legacy of craftsmanship with you, whether you wish to have fresh-cut lumber or reclaimed timber, we will provide you with furniture that is unique to your style.

Artisan Craftsmanship

The creation of hand-hewn beams is a meticulous process that involves the skilled hands of our artisans trained with over three generations of knowledge. Every inch of these beams is a tribute to the craftsmanship of those who shape, carve, and sculpt the wood while imbuing it with character and charm.

One of the hallmarks of our process is customization. We understand that every customer has unique tastes and needs, which is why we offer a range of options to tailor beams and furniture to perfection. Whether you prefer a rustic farmhouse style or a sleek modern design, we have the expertise to bring your vision to life.

From selecting the wood species to choosing the perfect finish, every aspect of your hand-hewn beams can be customized to suit your preferences. Our knowledgeable staff is here to guide you through the selection process, offering expert advice to help you create a piece that reflects your personal style.

Structural Resilience

Hand-hewn lumber is not only admired for its aesthetic appeal but also for its robust structural qualities. The deliberate shaping enhances its strength, making it a formidable load-bearing element suitable for the various needs your busy life creates.

Each piece is meticulously handcrafted with attention to detail, ensuring that every joint is tight, every surface is smooth, and every edge is crisp. Our beams are also built to be durable and functional. The result is a piece of furniture or structure that not only looks beautiful but also stands the test of time. It will possess a story that you pass down through your family line for generations to come.

Aesthetic Authenticity

The irregularities, tool marks, and varying textures on hand-hewn beams contribute to their authentic and rustic appearance. These characteristics make each beam a piece of art, showcasing the natural beauty of the wood and the craftsmanship involved.

At Bingham Lumber, we believe that wood and furniture should be more than just functional – it should be a work of art.
