Box Beams – Cedar

Affordable Real Wood Beams

All of our box beams are made from the same real Northwestern Spruce, Cedar, and White Oak that we use in our wood siding products. They provide all of the characteristics of a solid wood beam, at a fraction of the weight. We don’t use thin veneers or cast polyurethane substitutions, and we believe one should never settle for faux wood beam options.

We use proprietary processes to reproduce an authentic aging process. All of our products are textured by hand, guaranteeing that no two pieces of wood will look identical. Every beam we craft is unique, and our inspiration is drawn from the wood itself.

All of our beams are custom-made for each individual client and project. In addition to our standard color and texture options, we also offer custom finishes, unfinished/raw box beams, and paint-grade options. Please contact us for more information.

We also offer solid metal beam straps, in both a smooth and hammered texture, to accompany your chosen joint option. All straps are made-to-order to your specific dimensions, and are individually shaped for every beam.
