Re: original wooden beams

No idea Country boy. I see beams. In between it looks like cane(reeds?) The cane fits exactly between the beams. It looks like thick string binding the cane together. And ghe whole lot is covered in several decades of paint. Apart from that, i'm afraid I can't be any more specific.
