Sawn Timbers

Industrial Softwood Timbers

Sawn timbers, sourced from old industrial buildings across America, add a beautiful decorative or focal-point element to your building. Use as-is with the original saw marks highlighting the antique beauty and history of the piece, or resurface the timber to bring out the luster of the natural wood.


American Antique Lumber carries sawn timbers gathered by our associates in the industrial demolition industry. Timbers can come from textile mills in the Southeast, or warehouses in the Northeast. These structures can produce consistent material due to the high volume of wood used.

We source mostly Southern Yellow Pine and Doug Fir timbers and joist material. This material can be used for decorative beams with natural patina or can be re-milled and surfaced on four sides. Joist stock can be used as is or re-sawn into flooring.​

Choose Your Quality with Our In-House Grading System

Our timbers are graded visually by our own in-house standards. We can usually provide different grades of timbers to help you achieve the look you desire. Visual grades are for looks only, and there may be situations where some visual grades crossover. Structural grades may be achieved with our timbers by using graders from TPI. Please call for more information.

If you have questions about our sawn timbers, or are ready to place an order, contact us.
