In addition to a variety of styles of nails, Tremont Nail can provide information to help the restorer in determining the authenticity of a project. Cut nails possess great durability. They are hard to pull out because the shape causes the wood fibers to push downward and wedge against the nails, thus greatly stengthening their holding power. Once you have used them, you will prefer them for all sorts of applications. For almost 200 years, Tremont Nail has achieved a reputation for skilled nail cutting that has made its product readily saleable throughout the markets of the world. Through all the changes and the hurried pace of modern industry the same product is still being produced for customers who prefer the superior holding power and durability of this time-tested nail.

(Reclaimed Wood Prod.)
Peculiar, MO 64078
At Elmwood Reclaimed Timber we have a deep respect for the creations of nature, as well as for those passionate craftsmen who, generations ago, carefully wrought classic materials from nature’s offerings. So, our production process is slow and intimate compared to the warp speed and detachment with which many building materials are made today. The wood has waited for us; the least we can do is treat it right. Again. Wood from old-growth forests is more compact, more solid than new lumber. All of our lumber is superior quality, first-growth cutting, and it’s reclaimed from old barns and buildings. We’re way behind the times when it comes to cutting wood. Or corners. Reclaimed building supplies take extra effort to procure and process. We always go the distance when it comes to quality materials and workmanship.

Vallejo, CA 94590
For The Swan Company owner, Carol Hanson, it all began in 1979 with the purchase of an 1876 Italianate row house on Golden Gate Avenue in San Francisco. "It had picture rail molding, but the only place that carried the appropriate hangers (Woolworth's) went out of business before I got there. So I said 'Ok, I can do this myself'. Figuring that I wasn’t the only person that would miss Woolworth, I ran a very tiny ad in Victorian Homes Magazine. That describes the birth of the 'Picture Hanging Paraphernalia'. What came next was the picture rail molding. In 1989, we began construction of a new old house using mostly architectural salvage. That’s when I stumbled on 'Gesso' picture rail molding. By some miracle I found enough at a salvage yard to do our entire house. But I was in love with it and wanted to share it with others. I used scrap pieces on my website to display my picture rail hooks. Big mistake…as people thought I had it for sale, and I ended up disappointing a lot of them. But that’s when my quest began to learn as much as I could about it. It led me on a long (and many times disappointing) road, but I just couldn’t get it out of my mind. So now, a mere 25 years later, I am able to offer the world authentic Gesso Picture Rail Molding. Yes the real thing…plaster on wood and, best of all, it’s made in the USA".
