The Reticulated Corbel stands 18 inches high and has a reticulated pattern so that the background wall will show through when hung. Corbels are available in basswood or American-grown maple, cherry and red oak. For FREE information, visit http://pb.hotims.com/20668-255

The beams are sturdy and lightweight and can install over virtually any surface. For FREE information, visit http://pb.hotims.com/20668-257
