Ohio Valley Reclaimed Wood offers both Original Hand Hewn Ceiling Beams and Handmade Faux Beams (also known as decorative rafters, fake beams or box beams). Using ceiling beams or faux beams is a great way to improve the look of any ceiling. Both of these types of beams add a natural and classy look to any home, office or building. They are great material options for renovations and new builds alike.
Hand Hewn Ceiling Beams
Ceiling beams are solid reclaimed wood beams and are load bearing. They are appealing to the eye as well as functional. They are heavier than faux beams because they are sound whole old growth beams. Since they have been in an old barn for many, many decades they have already dried and cracked, there will be no more twisting, cracking or splitting — what you see is what you get. We clean and inspect all of the wood we remove from the barns after we dismantle them, preserving nothing but the best pieces. All rotten, molded or damaged materials are rejected on the spot.
We have a great stock of Ceiling Beams which we can cut to your project’s specifications.
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.)
