“Reuse and recycle” is a concept we can all appreciate, and The Olde Mill has taken that eco-friendly mindset to heart when manufacturing their reclaimed architectural beams.
Made out of salvaged longleaf pine, these hollow-box lightweight beams are an attractive way to hide framing, ductwork, wiring, and other mechanical systems.
The production process includes re-milling old beams into 1/4-in.-thick veneers and then laminating them to a plywood substrate, with edges mitered and the surface textured by hand. The hollow beams are all handcrafted in the United States, and are useful for a variety of indoor applications, such as mantels and floating shelves.
That post exemplifies the root of the problem - a historical legacy of centuries of propaganda based on the premise of European racial supremacy. It portrays the white colonial master that is the savior to the ever thankful poor black slave. Thank God, I’m an emancipated African - and I don’t worship at the feet of white gods - the Queen or the Governor, who are simply relics of outmoded colonialism built on the tenets of racist institutions of white supremacy that colonized and enslaved Africans for centuries.
As Bob Marley said, “Emancipate yourself from mental slavery,” because sometimes, “shit is just shit!”
