Available in a variety of colors and sizes so you can customize these beams to your specifications. Our fireplace mantels are hand sanded to help prevent splinters and make them easier to clean. Beams are air dried, light weight and easy to install. All beams are sound, even though they may have checks. This is normal and has no effect on durability - we're dedicated to building only the highest quality beams.


Hand hewn beams from JH Yoder Timbers are perfect to use as a floating shelf anywhere in your home. Whether purely decorative or fully functional, our beams offer a custom, durable, and beautiful solution for your shelving needs. Choose from a great selection of styles, finishes and more including intricately hand crafted corbels that are made to perfectly compliment your new beam.


Compliment your fireplace mantel or floating shelf with hand hewn corbels from JH Yoder Timbers. Derived from the French word "corbeau", which means “crow" - these beak inspired pieces have been around for ages. As the years have passed and times have changed so have the designs, purposes and applications of corbels. Masterfully crafted, our corbels are as beautiful as the beams they accompany.


Custom tailored to fit your needs and specifications, our hand-hewn ceiling box beams provide a truly spectacular presence in your home that rivals any home decor. Our hollow hand-hewn wood box beams can be used to cover steel "I" beams, or other mechanical obstructions. Lock miter joints provide solid, sturdy construction that looks great and holds strong. Boasting the same breathtaking hand-hewn and rustic treatments as our mantels and shelves, our custom timber truss detail pieces will add that "wow" factor to your home interior that will leave you feeling proud and everyone else feeling awe struck.

Styles & Options

We currently offer 5 color choices: Barnwood, Dark Chocolate, Rustic Walnut, Smoked Oak, and Weathered Siding. The color may vary slightly depending on the beam itself, since no two beams have exactly the same qualities. Also, please note that when viewing any color samples online there can be variations in the appearance of colors depending on the screen type. We try to make the representations as accurate as possible, but slight variation is to be expected.

Mounting Your Beam

The back of your beam should be notched out to fit on a 2x4 or 2x6 (depending on the size of the beam). Your mantel can be ordered this way, if it has not been notched out already. Locate on your wall where you want your mantel to rest and mount a 2x4 (or 2x6) on the wall. The entire weight of the beam will be on the 2x4 (or2x6), so be sure that it is well secured. Place your mantel on the 2x4 (or 2x6) and screw from the top of your mantel down into the 2x4 (or 2x6). We suggest using 3 to 4 screws from the top and 2 screws from the bottom up. For brick or any masonry use mason screws plus construction glue to mount the 2x4 (or 2x6) on the wall.
