  • It arrives at your site sealed against the elements and ready to install.

Barnwood Paneling Gives the Looks of Reclaimed Wood

This weathered gray barnwood paneling simulates old reclaimed barnwood and is another beautiful option for your cabin walls.

Our barnwood paneling is available in 6” and 8’ widths and is created from northern pine wood. It goes through a unique process to simulate old wood with the texture and character made by nature. We recommend using this clean wood rather than old, reclaimed wood that can contain nails, screws, bugs, odors, toxins, and warped pieces.

All of our wood products are hand-inspected to ensure you get defect-free siding, trims, and corner systems.

  • “We wanted to take the time to thank you and your company for the fabulous wood we received from you this past month. We have diligently been putting up our log siding, trying to beat the weather. We will forward some pictures for your website as soon as we get done.”
    Jeff Chamberlain – Lapeer, MI
  • “Remember me? I’m the school teacher from New Jersey that purchased the quarter log 2×6 siding from The Woodworkers Shoppe last summer. The exterior of my lake home has been completed and only the interior needs some finishing touches before we move in. I thought I’d send you a photo of how the siding looks. We love it! Once I finish landscaping and we move in I’ll send you a “finished product” photo. Thanks once again for your help in finding the siding that was perfect for my needs.”
    Doug Castellana – Sussex, NJ
  • “After almost a year, I finally take the time to thank you for delivering this beautiful log siding. I had a lot of pleasure doing business with you, the product came as described and right on time. Price wise, you have no competition, your prices are the best one can find. I installed the siding in the interior of my restaurant in Tahoe and combined it with river rock and your knotty pine T&G for the ceiling. I’m glad I went with your trim & molding for finishing windows and doors, it was perfect! The wood came in very good conditions and the prep. was easy enough. The installation was amazingly fast and I had almost no waist at all (I built a custom salad bar with the left over!). I have attached a couple pictures, feel free to use them at your convenience. I look forward to including your products in my next project. Thanks again”
    Gerald Palomares – Lake Tahoe, CA
  • “Just a quick email to tell you how pleased I am with your product. I had purchased the quarter sawn 2 x 8 some time ago from your company and every piece went together nicely. I did not find one bad piece in the whole two pallets!! Thank you so much!!”
    Loren Coney – Shepherd, MI
  • “I finally finished my basement project. The log siding, doors, mantle, and post covers were perfect. Everyone who sees it loves it. It was a lot of work and I never thought I’d get it done. I am so glad it’s over and it really turned out great. Thanks for a great product and all the help with shipping and ordering etc.”
