Add the Beauty of Rustic Wood to Your Design

Rustic wood has been a part of home design for thousands of years. From a rustic cabin to a Craftsman home to a modern design, natural wood conveys warmth and charm and evokes a homey atmosphere no matter what your style.
A Craftsman Style house in autumn.Van Dyke’s has added a new line of rustic corbels, braces, brackets, outlookers and rafter tails to our already expansive offering of wood items. These handcrafted wood products are made of solid wood including Cherry, Maple, Red Oak, Alder, and Walnut, and are offered in many sizes and styles including Traditional and Craftsman.
Our rustic wood products are rough-sawn to achieve the rustic appeal and are perfect for any kind of wood project. These kiln dried wood pieces contain unique colors, grains, textures, knots, sap, splitting, and cracks that make them unique and stand out from the rest. This new rustic wood collection complements our wide selection of smooth-sawn wood products.
Corbels are one of the most common and versatile wood products and come in many styles, designs, and sizes. The New Restorers Rustic series is Traditional in style with simple lines and curves. They are perfect for all your primitive and country projects.
We also have corbels in the most popular smooth styles including Acanthus Leaf, Scroll, Mission, Arts & Crafts, Fluted, Grape, Shell, Feather, Basket Weave, Lion Face, Nautical, and Modern. Corbels are used for shelving, under mantels, kitchen cabinets, kitchen counters and islands, and  for decorative accents in doorways and entryways.
Outlookers are new to our selection and are most often used in roof construction as part of the roof eave that supports the portion of the roof beyond the gable. Choose from over 20 designs.
Decorative Rafter Tails are a great way to add a design element to your roof line. Rafter tails were originally a part of the framing of the roof and were either exposed or closed with fascia and soffit. Exposed rafter tails are common on roofs of Craftsman-style homes.
Decorative rafter tails are purely used for visual effect. They are installed under the roof deck and attached to the frieze board and appear to be an extension of the rafters. Choose from a dozen notched styles in a number of lengths to suit any application.
A new collection of Wood Carvings called New Restorers Architectural Carvings includes Capitals and Plinths, Corbels, Island Legs, Wood Shelf Brackets, Appliques, and Ceiling Medallions.
