If you’re thinking – wow, how did he hang this massive chunk of wood on the wall – look again. You may notice there is no end grain in the beam. Yes, this is a faux beam. I originally made it about half the thickness, but it was too narrow for my wife’s liking (and I guess after further ponderance – my own as well). After releasing some of my furry on the narrow wood and busting out some of the glued edges I rebuilt it to it’s current glory with many of the scars left for all to see. It actually worked out well to have so much tear-out during my destructive rampage and after further marring of the surface, it ended up looking quite realistic and worn. 11 feet long, made from cedar planks and finished with mohagany stain and a lighter stain\poly (see my TV stand built-in).
You can’t see it in the picture, but the rest of the shelf is finished in the same wood and finish.
