Real-Wood Box Beams

COVID-19 Update

Our production facility is currently closed to all public visits at this time.

We are still accepting orders, and are producing/shipping material on our normal schedule.

Hewn Elements is monitoring the COVID-19 crisis seriously. We are not currently experiencing any production delays. We do not expect the current situation to impact the output of our Oregon production facility in the upcoming weeks. Gloves and P100 respirators have always been our standard work attire, and our limited number of craftsmen allows us ample physical distancing space in our 40,000 sq ft workshop. All office staff is working from home, to minimize risk and promote healthy social isolation.

  • Hewn Elements follows OSHA’s Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for Covid-19.
  • All employees have been educated on COVID-19 symptoms and how COVID-19 spreads.
  • Employees are educated on how to lower the risk of exposure to COVID-19 at all times. This includes time outside of Hewn production.
  • Our offices and manufacturing facilities are not currently open to the public. Only authorized employees are allowed on the premises.
  • Safety measures used to control risk of exposure include: safe distancing, wearing PPE, hand washing, regular disinfecting of equipment and workspaces.
  • This plan and its policies are implemented all throughout our business. Risk during deliveries, manufacturing, and shipping is minimized for the safety of our customers and employees. All Hewn shipments are disinfected before leaving our facilities.
  • Any employees that can work remotely are set up to do so. These employees will not visit our facilities unless absolutely necessary.
  • If an employee is sick or showing signs of COVID-19, they will be sent home immediately.
  • If an employee has a family member that is sick or showing signs of COVID-19, they will be sent home immediately.

Non-Structural Truss Systems

We can create spans up to 24’, with weight up to 512 lbs. Larger assemblies can be engineered as well. All Truss Systems are pre-assembled in the factory for easy installation, and include mounting hardware. Shop drawings are included as well.

Custom End Caps

We offer custom end caps to match your beam, available for all of our catalog colors, species, and textures, as well as for custom finish options.

Our end caps come in two variations: Standard Grain, and End Grain (extra costs apply). Our Standard Grain is designed to match the same grain patterns and texture as the face of your beam, while our End Grain option is cut from a cross-section of a solid timber, and is crafted to meet up with the grain on the face of your beam in a natural manner. Our End Grain option is currently available for custom orders only.

Corbels and Braces

We offer an assortment of Corbels and Braces to accompany your beam installations. All of our aesthetic support accessories are handcrafted from solid Cedar, and feature the same colors and textures as our Cedar beam offerings. They are designed to be paired with our Cedar beams, and can be customized to your specifications. We also offer handcrafted wood pegs to complete your look. At this time, our Corbels and Braces are not available in White Oak or Northwestern Spruce.

Straps & Joint Options

We offer multiple custom joint options for beams crafted to longer lengths. Beam joints are not grain-matched. They are not designed to be invisible to the eye.

We also offer solid metal beam straps, in both a smooth and hammered texture, to accompany your chosen joint option. Our beam straps are also fully capable of being used with our Cedar, Northwestern Spruce, and White Oak lines. They are made-to-order to your specific dimensions, and are individually shaped for every beam.
