I have a concrete beam I would like to dress in wood how to do (natural oak)?
If you want to dress your beam with solid wood, you have to prepare a U-shaped formwork the full length of your concrete beam, which you will attach overhead with self-drilling screws. These screws can be masked by wooden caps (pieces of trunnions) of the desired size, fixed with wood glue, and giving the illusion that they are real dowels.
If you prefer simplicity, follow the advice of our DIY advice sheet installation of false beams which details the implementation of polyurethane covers that perfectly imitate the wood. Lighter, they are also much easier to install.
