I have only seen one of those timbers.
Sent from the UK
Some of them are fairly rare or at least difficult to come by, but a little research should at least eliminate a few of them as possibilities. Then it’s a matter of narrowing down the possibilities.

I’ve been fortunate to do a good bit of traveling in my career, and I’m a wood hoarder, so I actually have some of each of these timbers in my shop - some collected in my travels, some by trade or purchase & some from my own farm.
