These are some beams I built on site for a 12000 SQ FT lake house. Wish it was mine but its not. In the foreground of the one picture you can see the curved hand rail. I’ll have to post some pics of the stair case.

Looks great. are those lights on the bottom on the beam? Is it hollow? What kind of wood is it? I would like to see more pictures of your work on this house. Thanks for sharing.

Ya Dave, there are lights in the beams and the are hollow. The wood is poplar. I’ll definitely get more pictures up soon.
Thanks for looking.
