I am installing trim beams or feaux beams soon. I’ve already got my 1×6 & 1×8 select cypress in the house & it should be fully acclimated. As everyone probably understands, I need to cut a 45 (or more) degree miter on the edges so that I can create the look of a 16 foot solid cypress beam on the ceiling. My fear is that a less than perfectly straight piece of cypress will wreak havoc on the corners of the finished beam.
I haven’t done this specific job before – I’m open to all suggestions.
