Antique Trestlewood Fir Timbers

The timbers which compose these trusses were salvaged from the waters of the Great Salt Lake as the remnants of a 12-mile-long train trestle. Salt from the lake has changed the character of the wood. As the first use was as pilings, or logs, the timbers were cut after salvage on a large circle-saw mill, so the texture, along with the added color present an old appearance.
