This look very nice! How do you compute the wood needed?

@A1Jim……….only the voice of experience would know that : )

@MasterSargeant………….use your tape measure. Measure the width, the length, count the number of pieces of crown x the length, plus the width…….kinda easy. Add a waste factor (I use 20% ). Behind the beams are plywood “U” channels screwed into ceiling joists, the actual beam was pre-fabed on the floor then placed over the U channel, then screwed to channel, the crown hides the screws

Nice job! How long did it take you?

Just for my edification (not suggesting you did or didn’t here), is running electrical wires in the beams considered kosher?

@live4ever : 3 days from start to finish, caulked………painted by others

I suppose the electrical wires could be attached on the ceiling before the beams are applied but it’s best to check your local electrical building code. Here, you cannot bury/hide a connection box and wire must be buried, otherwise BX could be used
