Faux Beams

Ohio Valley Reclaimed Wood offers Handmade Faux Beams (also known as decorative rafters, fake beams or box beams). Using Faux Beams is a great way to improve the look of any ceiling, column,  accent wall or structure.  These well crafted Faux Beams add a natural and classy look to any home, office or building. They are great material options for renovations and new builds alike.

Handmade Faux Beams

Faux beams are built with the following characteristics:

Reclaimed wood is milled to ¾” thickness and then we re-hand hew the planks (by hand and not by a machine in our facility) to get great looking ax cut markings.

Professional miter lock Corners and Seams. (Hollow in the center.)

Here with Ohio Valley Reclaimed Wood, you will see NO foam beams! We craft natural looking pieces to give you the authentic design you have been searching for. You will find they have more character than any other faux beam because of the uniqueness (bug scarring, checking, nail-peg holes, and definition of the wood grain.)
