Green Oak Beams

The term ‘Green Oak’ means that the timber beam has been cut from a recently felled tree. There moisture content of the wood is the same as if were still growing. There are many positives when it comes to green oak. The timber is much easier to work than the significantly harder air dried oak and it can therefore be more easily moulded and cut into more complex shapes. As green oak dries, it changes colour and is characterised by small cracks giving it the familiar style of most oak framed buildings in the UK. As it seasons, green oak shrinks and causes joints to tighten making it incredibly strong. It is therefore very useful for making large or small beams.

Shaped beams

Shaped Beams

Over the years we have supplied some stunning shaped beams in green oak, air dried oak and softwood. A shaped beam is often the centre piece for a building and exudes character. Some shaped beams are accurately cut to specification, and some simply follow the natural course of the wood as it had grown. Whichever way you look at it, a shaped beam is a beautiful structure that has many applications on many scales. We can supply the correct timber and advise on the best way to use a shaped beam for your project.

Air dried beams

Air Dried Beams

We have a large selection of air dried beams. These have been seasoned over 2 to 3 years to allow them to become more stable than green wood. Air dried beams are ideal for construction where very little movement is critical, e.g. large areas of glass in-fill or to match an existing aged construction.

We supply stunning, unique and long lasting, oak fireplace beams, mantel shelves and lintels. These beautiful fireplace features add identity and warmth to any room. You can also augment the look of any heating appliance with our oak, for example woodburners and Agas etc.
It could be a straightforward beam, a beam with corbels, a mantel or a lintel or facia board for a surround, we can accurately craft some oak to suit your needs. Air dried oak is perfectly suited to fireplaces or areas which involve warmth as they are structurally stable and most importantly won’t ooze sap.

Corbels, Chamfers and Architrave

It goes without saying that we wouldn’t be a respected sawmill providing accurately machined and crafted wood without the ability to produce pretty much anything you need. We can design corbels for your fireplace beam, mantel, lintel or shelf or even larger construction. We can carve detailing into any piece of wood as required.
We also provide long lengths of wood with a chamfer for various applications and can provide custom made or relatively standard architrave too. It’s good to surround a door or window with beautifully cut wood.
