What are Beams and trusses?

Throughout Europe we are looking for old beams and trusses. We want to give this 'written off' wood a new life. By importing the boards to the Netherlands and processing them into usable semi-finished products, we ensure that furniture makers have wood with character at their disposal.

Origin of the beams and trusses

In our searches through Europe, we often come across old dilapidated barns, farms or castles. These buildings have not been used for years and the owners often find it too much trouble to demolish them. We examine the used wood and usually find many useful parts. In addition to the wall covering, the beams and trusses are often still in good condition. We then talk to the owners and import the usable wood to the Netherlands. Countries where we remove many beams and trusses are Croatia, Poland and Austria.

Applications of the beams and trusses

Our certified furniture makers use the processed beams and trusses for various pieces of furniture such as;


  • Tables
  • Cabinets
  • Bathroom Furniture

In addition, the beams are often used for canopies, garden sheds or other home accessories.

Processing the beams and trusses

When the beams and trusses come to us, they are often still very dirty. We first clean the beams and then strip them of nails. When the beams are clean, we have two more methods to process them into usable materials. The first is brushing the beams and trusses. This makes the seams that have formed in the wood over the years clearly visible, which gives an attractive look to the wood. Another common technique is planing the beams Then we can saw them to size for you.
