Profilhyvlad (takbjälke) i "lammtungeprofil"
Explanation:
Jag har ingen aning om det existerar en fackmannaterm på svenska, så detta är bara ett lekmannaförslag.
Det handlar i alla fall om en dekorativ typ av profilhyvling, som främst används för synliga takbjälkar.

Förklaring (med bilder) saxad från:
http://www.slaidburn.org.uk/renovation_page_3.htm

On some of the ends of the main beams of the roof trusses, bevels ending in decorative motifs known as "lamb's tongue" stop-chamfer mouldings could be seen. They are called "lamb's tongue" stop-chamfers because of their shape. Various different styles of stop-chamfer mouldings can be found in historic buildings which can sometimes help to date or show the original status of the building. The finding of these mouldings in Brennand's School roof proved that the roof structure had been designed to be seen and was, therefore, originally open to the floor below with no ceiling.

Interestingly, the same stop-chamfer was noticed on beams in the bar of the "Hark to Bounty Inn", Slaidburn. Made by the same man perhaps?
