Thomas Cole National Historic Park
This new building is a replica of the original demolished in the 1970's.
B.H. Davis Company produced the barge board trim
shown below in conjunction with
Architectural Components of Montaque, MA
and Rex Lumber Company of Acton, MA.
Barge boards installed.
The original building is on the left. An artist rendering of the
new building is on the right.
One group ready for delivery.
Close up photo of a stack of
barge board finials.
A small group still being worked on in the shop.
This closeup photo shows how the finial grain
runs vertically while the main section of the barge
board has a lengthwise grain direction. This short
length of wood is tennoned into the main section above.
It is made this way so that the finial will be stronger
and less likely to break off over time.
