Reclaimed Chestnut Gunstock Posts

We were excited to come across these rare examples of timber frame construction. Gunstock posts were used in the construction of circa 1700s houses and barns. Posts were tapered with the wider part of the beam placed at the top to accommodate more complex joinery with both wall and ceiling elements. All have characteristic mortise pockets and bolt holes.
