Our customers say... "We liked these so much in our ski house in Lake Tahoe that we ordered more! Now, the downstairs area of our house is homier, cozier, and definitely more beautiful. These look great."
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.
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 love the corbels.(May 14, 2012)
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.
nice looking product(Feb 13, 2011)
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!
Very nice, but...(Oct 23, 2009)
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 good product, but some things to watch for(Jan 16, 2009)
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.

Best Product Out There(Jan 14, 2009)
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!

Excellent product(Dec 27, 2008)
We purchased these to install under the mantel of our fireplace. They are sooo realistic - people don't know they are not real wood.

Looks totally authentic(Dec 21, 2008)
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!

Perfect addition to the timber beams we installed.(Dec 21, 2008)
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.

So far, these faux products are awesome.(Dec 18, 2008)
We've installed them inside and out in humid FL. They're so realistic looking, it's truly amazing.
Creating "Old World" character.(Dec 18, 2008)
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.

very realistic, even the woodpeckers think its real(Dec 13, 2008)
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.
