Beam above a window or door in example
There is no way for plaster to hang on a wooden box beam above a window or door without some structural help. I prefer to use diamond lath (expanded metal lath and plaster lath are two other common names for this material). It provides a great amount of “tooth” for the plaster to hang onto. Be sure to space it off of the wood by either buying self furring lath of by adding a layer of welded wire mesh underneath it. this allows the plaster to extend through the lath and be held by it, rather than simply laying on top of it.
