Architectural Arched Barn Brace. Mantel or Shelf
This is a very cool piece! It is one of ten similar that I have available.
It’s a perfect example of salvaged architectural timber. It was reclaimed from the “Bear Lake Farm” barn in northern Wisconsin. This magnificent barn was one of the largest in the entire state. Possibly in the entire world I’m told. Built by German Immigrants in the early 1900’s. This brace helped hold up the bottom floor where the milking cows were kept. I’ve milled it up some, planed off the old milk wash stain and sanded it smooth to bring out it’s wonderful grain.
