    Modern Timber Craft started in 2014 from a love of old barns and historic buildings. Nearly 10 years into this, my wife Raquel, our dog Bear, and I, along with an amazing group of people behind the scenes help us to continue this adventure. We are passionate about creating an experience our customers will enjoy and remember while providing them with a unique and authentic piece of history.

  • Made in the USA

    All of our material is not only certified reclaimed, but also made and repurposed in the USA. Salvaged from historic American structures within the eastern portion of the United States and prepared in PA to be the focal point in your home.


What’s the difference between a skip-planed barn wood mantel and a barn wood mantel?

The skip-planed finish is achieved by running the reclaimed barn wood through a planer set to only remove the high points, “skipping” over the low points. By doing this, it allows the reclaimed barnwood to keep even more of its authentic texture, character, and history.

A normal barn wood mantel finish is achieved by running the reclaimed barnwood through a planer adjusted to a lower setting to remove not only the high points but also the rest of the woods skin in order to achieve a smoother and more uniformed finish. Even with this smoother finish, you will still get variations from natural checking, knots, nail holes, hand hewing, circle saw markings and worm holes.
