Typical Corbel Patterns available from Lumber Yards

These are the patterns that are typically available from most lumber yards.  These cuts can be made on the end of larger beams such as a 4×6 or 8×12. Many times, when larger (bigger than 2x)wood is used and left exposed, it can be nice to add a distinctive pattern on the ends.

Typical Knee Brace Patterns available from Lumber Yards

Knee braces are used to brace a vertical post to a horizontal beam.  Much like the corbel patterns, these patterns can be cut at the limber yard and used as exposed lumber on the house.
