Oak Fireplace Beams

We craft air dried oak beams in our workshop specifically to use as fireplace mantels and surrounds. As well as offering a bespoke service, we have also set aside a space where finished oak beams are available to buy off the shelf.

Please bear in mind that the oak we use for fireplace mantels is air dried, not green oak. Customers are urged not to attempt to make fire surrounds from fresh sawn, green oak – the moisture content is too high.

Oak Fireplace Beams

We usually have between 30 and 40 Oak fireplace beams on display in our showroom. All are available to buy of the shelf. Prices vary but start at around £39 + vat for an 8" x 4" x 36" planed all round. Most of the fireplace beams that we have on display are planned, sanded and finished. Some have been shaped to further enhance the character of the beam.

Clearly, the more preparation work involved the greater the cost, but an average price of our oak fireplace beams would be around £125.

Most of our customers prefer to come down to the workshop and choose a beam that they like. Others will have a beam made to their requirements after seeing the different styles and finishes on offer, with many pointing to three different beams, asking for that size, that colour and that shape!

We can craft a beam to any style and size that you require. Our most popular sizes are 8" x 4", 6" x 6" , 8" x 6" , 8" x 8" , 7" x 9" and 10" x 10" , available at any length up to 20ft.

With such an important purchase, the focal point of the main room of the house, it's much better to have a good look at what you are buying. Why not visit our showroom to see what we have on offer?
