Not to sound like a jerk but check them out. I have heard someone mention pvc pipe. I think about 10" diameter or so. There is probably lots of info about it in the archives.
www.taxidermyreference.com and then go to my tanning article and there are two types of beams there. The small one is made of maple and the large one of cedar. If you have any ?'s you can e-mail me directly.
6-8 INCH PVC PIPE WORKS WELL AND CLEANS UP EASY JUST CUT AND SAND OR GRIND EDGES TO DESIRED SHAPE
i went up to my local lumberyard and got a 2"x12"x12' of hem fir. then i measure the beam to what was comfortable for me. added a base and supports. then i took a draw knife and made the top curved like it should be. varnished it and finally put 5 coats of clear coat on top. hope this helps
