Announcement   Heirloomwoodworks makes Chess sets and Mantle clocks from reclaimed 1830's barn beams. These Chess sets and Mantle clocks are full of cool features, old black nail holes, peg holes and pegs beautiful burls and tons of worm holes and tunnels. Most of my peiecs are made from Wormy Chestnut trees. The American Chestnut trees died off at the end of the 1800's and early 1900's due to a blight. I encourge people to "google" Chestnut Blight to see the fasinating history of this rare wood which is really only available from reclaimed sources. Its so cool to own a piece that you know was hand hewn by one of our Pioneer Forefathers 180 years ago These make great gifts for a loved History Buff, Wood worker, or Barn/Farm Lover. Each piece is marked with the type of wood,age and info on the Winston barn in Centerville Ohio, and is signed and numbered. I include a cool framed photo of the Winston Barn in the 1940's and also a pamphlet about the Wormy Chestnut Trees and even a copy of a local 1982 newspaper photo of Farmer Winston out painting the barn, he is quoted as saying its 150 years old at that time. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE read my customer reviews, every one is 5 star and are full of descriptions like Awestruck, Absolutely Stunning, Art Work, Amazing, Love It, Best Gift He Ever Received.

Absolutely love the coasters - exactly what I was looking for. Also received a picture of the barn together with a history. Highly recommend - could not be happier!

A great clock visually and a conversation piece. Shipping was quick and well done. Arrived with the photo as well.

Thanks for checing out my wood Chess sets, I used reclaimed beams from a 1830's Ohio barn to make these Chess sets. Its so cool because no two are alike, these seem to be a "out of the park " gift, especially a great gift for a guy. I have a blast making them and hope to enjoy this hobby for years, its a great feeling to transform a old grey recaimed barn beam into a beautiful Chess set.
