We fabricated 3 of these hollow timber trusses for the inside of a custom home in Northern New Jersey. These were made from new pine, hollowed out, hand hewn and wirebrushed. Finish will be applied on site. They are 10’ tall and 21’ long!!

How do you get them outside, they seem like they go into the roof trusses?

That must be some house. As you mentioned, I’d like to see the finished product also. That truss looks promising and massive. Nice work.
