Beveled Half Corbel Adzing
 

A corbel is a structural member that projects from a structure and supports a weight. Another definition of a corbel is an architectural member that is stepped upward and outward from a vertical surface.

Our corbels are generally used on top of posts or pillars to support beams or vigas. They may be used in porches, patios, pergolas, verandas, gazebos, or entry ways.

A corbel may also be used as a decorative bracket and not provide any structural support. Our corbels can also be cut in such a way so that they can serve as a decorative bracket for shelves, doorways, or mantels.

Corbels have been used in many different architectural styles for a very long time. Corbels are common in many different building traditions including: Medieval architecture, Chinese architecture, Scottish baronial style, Italian and French Classical architecture as well as many other architectural styles.

The style of corbel that we offer is the Spanish/New Mexican style. This architectural style is also sometimes referred to as Santa Fe, Pueblo Revival, or Territorial Revival architectural style.

Corbel Types:

Full, Half, Corner

Depending on where you will be using the corbels, you may need different types of corbels. Each type of corbel provides different structural support.

Full corbels are used to support a beam or vigas that runs in the same direction as the corbel. For example, a full corbel would be used in the middle of a porch or pergola to provide support for a beam that is running across the full length of the corbel .

Rio Grande Full Corbel

Half corbels are used to support a beam or viga that goes only in one direction from the corbel. For example on the inside corner of a porch where only one beam ends. Half corbels are often used where one side of the corbel is up against a wall or other flat surface and the other end supports the mantel or shelf.

Rio Grande Half Corbel

Corner corbels are used to support beams or vigas that go in a perpendicular direction from each other. For example on the outside corner of a porch where two beams meet.
