Lengthening shorter beams would be my choice over creating a beam-like object from planks though the way to do it is not dovetail but one of the many scarf joints, very strong and not so difficult as they may seem.
If you don’t want to work unseasoned beams there is no doubt reclaimed wood in your county.
Much depends on what you are matching this work to of course.
