Description of Timber Corbels
Timber faux wooden corbels will add visual interest to any home with their rugged, down-to-earth look. Made of sturdy, high-density polyurethane, they can be used both indoors and on exteriors and are staunchly resistant to damage from weather and pest damage.
Made from a mold of real wood and hand-finished, the corbels exhibit the wood’s characteristics down to the smallest textural detail. They can be easily installed anywhere – underneath fireplace mantels, cabinetry, roof overhangs, on ceiling beam ends and more.
Important! Any Timber or Sandblasted Beams, Planks and/or Corbels intended to be used in an exterior application needs to be top coated with a high quality clear coat exterior polyurethane with a UV inhibitor to protect the stain from fading.

The weathered texture is convincing, but be aware that each corbel is exactly alike. The marks of character in the grain are all in the same places, which, on closer inspection, tells you they are faux. If the manufacturer wanted to make this product perfect, it would create variant models to give a more random effect. Mine are installed on a second story soffit and not subject to close scrutiny. I am counting on the manufacturer's claims that this material is durable in southern California. I will be greatly pleased if it is. They should last the life of the house, or be withdrawn from the market.

The corbels are very realistic looking and made of very hardy material. We have them installed about 18' up under a soffit and they look fantastic. Buying more for the rest of the project.
Our fireplace had small (in depth) Heavy solid plaster corbels. It needed a wide corbel to balance the mantel. The faux corbel was perfect. Very easy installation. My husband glued them on the wall using Loctite Power Grab which worked great. When painted, the corbel took the color of the paint and matched the wall perfectly. It now looks like a grand fireplace from the Spanish Colonial era of the old Southwest.

I needed these for a fireplace that I was building for a theatrical production. After installing a wood backing inside the rear of the corbel it was as easy as 1 2 3 to attach them through the faux stone that I had made myself. With the wood blocking in place I merely screwed them in place from the rear. They looked great and I can still use them for future projects.
We always wanted out house to look more like a Spanish hacienda and we're so happy with the results. Adding the corbels was the crowning touch. Everyone on our block loves the final outcome and can't believe they are faux. Our corbels were painted by our painter then installed by a trim carpenter. Installation was time consuming (based on the number you install) but well worth it.
Used the faux timber corbels for an outdoor kitchen under granite counters. Backfilled them with cement and a rod. Worked perfectly and they're weather and bug proof!
The grain, detail, color, and overall appearance of these corbels is excellent. I ordered a dozen of them to use with existing beams. The problem is that all corbels are identical in their wood grain design pattern. It seems a serious mistake that this otherwise excellent product does not have a variety of 3-5 wood grain patterns.
Wanted to install a mantle on my bare brick fireplace, but mantles are expensive! Then I thought I'd just buy two wood corbels, and make my own... but they're expensive, too! Google led me to fauxwoodbeams.com, and I ended up with a gorgeous (in my opinion)fireplace mantle at a very low price! Extremely easy to stain and install, and no one can believe the corbels aren't real wood. Just have to fix my screw holes -- did a bad job puttying.
Overall I am real happy with the way the timber corbels look on the exterior of my new home I am building. They look very real and no one could tell they were faux.
I was not happy with the squareness of the corbels. Since they were 1/4 to 1/2 inch out of square, each corbel had to be shaved in order to get it to sit flush with the wall and soffit. This caused a higher cost for me with the install. They are still not perfect and I was planning on using the walnut caulking to fill in the gaps. After putting on one corbel, I decided to not use the caulking as it did not look good at all. I am planning on useing the timber beams on the interior.
I installed the faux beams but needed something to complete the look. This corbel was perfect. It's purely decorative so I only had to glue it on with liquid nails. No one believes me when I say it's fake!

We purchased these to install under the mantel of our fireplace. They are sooo realistic - people don't know they are not real wood.
Medicine Hat, Canada
Used the corbels under my fireplace mantel. The mantel is real wood and the corbels match perfectly. Looks like it all came from the same tree. Fantastic!
The corbels are so realistic people have to touch them to believe they are not real wood. The corbels were the decorative addition we needed for the timber beams we placed. Outstanding product that looks like real wood and is super easy to install.
San Antonio, Texas
We've installed them inside and out in humid FL.
They're so realistic looking, it's truly amazing.
I needed to put some soul into our ordinary and very modern tract home.
The rustic timber corbels and beams created a renaissance charm to our home. A few screws, a saw, a ladder and some glue and we were soon sitting pretty with our new room makeover.
Orange County, California
Very light and easy to install and very realistic looking. Only issue and somewhat of a major one is the woodpeckers in my area love them, and out of the 10 I installed they drilled baseball size holes in half of them.
