This hand hewn Pine wood mining track is from an 1860 - 70's Gold Mine in the Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains. I have converted it into a floating wall shelf or you can display it laying flat on a coffee table. It comes with the original 3" track ties and nails.
This item is ready to ship.

Description: This historical piece of old growth hand hewn lumber was reclaimed from a circa 1860/70's Gold Mining Camp located in the Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains in California. This area is rich in history and the California Gold Rush is one such event. The Gold Miners flocked here to mine gold, silver and other valuable metals in the mid-late 1800s. This particular gold mine and settlement was established in the 1860's. This wood piece was found on site in "as-is" condition and still has the original track ties and axe marks that give it a fabulous rustic patina. It looks fantastic for the 140 years it's been weathering in the mountains. Solid and ready to hang.
Surface: sanded to a semi-smooth finish.
Finish: Minwax Natural & Ebony mixed stains. I can apply a finish sealer (lacquer or polyurethane) if you wish.
Hanging hardware: two heavy duty keyhole hangers
Additional pics upon request.
