Accessories

Hewn Elements has grown to become the largest manufacturers of wooden box beams in North America. 


As a vertically-integrated workshop, Hewn Elements is able to take the wood from start-to-finish through the milling, color, texture, and beam assembly processes, before shipping directly from our Oregon workshop to your 
job-site or home.
All of our beams are made from real wood, sustainably sourced from North American forests, free of contaminants that often plague real reclaimed wood products. 

Our beams can be created in large quantities with consistent color and texture, while retaining the natural variance and authentic charm and texture of a real-wood product.
Though the end-result can often appear as if the beams are tightly woven into the fabric of the structure, all of our beams are non-structural, and can be installed using simple sleepers attached to studs. This results in a quick and easy installation, allowing for schedule flexibility and greater efficiency on the job-site.

Non-Structural Truss Systems

We can create spans up to 24’, with weight up to 512 lbs. Larger assemblies can be engineered as well. All Truss Systems are pre-assembled in the factory for easy installation, and include mounting hardware. Shop drawings are included as well.

Custom End Caps

We offer custom end caps to match your beam, available for all of our catalog colors, species, and textures, as well as for custom finish options.

Our end caps come in two variations: Standard Grain, and End Grain (extra costs apply). Our Standard Grain is designed to match the same grain patterns and texture as the face of your beam, while our End Grain option is cut from a cross-section of a solid timber, and is crafted to meet up with the grain on the face of your beam in a natural manner. Our End Grain option is currently available for custom orders only.

Corbels and Braces

We offer an assortment of Corbels and Braces to accompany your beam installations. All of our aesthetic support accessories are handcrafted from solid Cedar, and feature the same colors and textures as our Cedar beam offerings. They are designed to be paired with our Cedar beams, and can be customized to your specifications. We also offer handcrafted wood pegs to complete your look. At this time, our Corbels and Braces are not available in White Oak or Northwestern Spruce.

Straps & Joint Options

We offer multiple custom joint options for beams crafted to longer lengths. Beam joints are not grain-matched. They are not designed to be invisible to the eye.

We also offer solid metal beam straps, in both a smooth and hammered texture, to accompany your chosen joint option. Our beam straps are also fully capable of being used with our Cedar, Northwestern Spruce, and White Oak lines. They are made-to-order to your specific dimensions, and are individually shaped for every beam.
