Ceiling Beams


Painted wooden ceiling beams crafted to fit an octagonal room.
Beaded flat panel construction with artichoke carvings and room crown.



My goodness Steve, you never cease to amaze.


Very nice work. Tough with all the angles then to go and add some more with curves and carvings, fantastic work Steve.

The tougher it is the more fun it is. Framers botched that room. Each beam is a different length and the plumb cheek cuts change in degrees as you go around at the top. Being that everything was painted before hand, I had to sweat that one out. I am pleased with how dramatic it is.


Great work Steve.

It adds such dimension to the room. Outstanding!

The photos don’t capture the 9/12 roof pitch.Really flattens it out. In need of photography lessons.



That really is an extreme pitch! You must have had some incredible scaffolding to manage the installation. You couldn’t be acrophobic and deal with that!

It really turned out beautiful with all the spectacular details.

L/W, I installed it all off ladders. It was burning hot that day.You couldn’t even pick up your framing square. The beams were built and painted in the shop with no extra at the top, so I prayed my math was right.


Wow so awesome
