Planed Oak Beams
Planed oak beams are the most affordable oak fireplace beams in our range, perfect for the trade or DIY capable. Industrial woodworking machines are used to plane all four sides of the beam resulting in a finish ready for sanding and finishing.
We strongly recommend letting your oak beam adjust to your room temperature for at least 2 weeks before installation. When installed above a wood burning stove we advise that the heat is increased gradually over a period of a few weeks or so. These precautions should keep any movement to a minimum.
We recommend finishing your beam with wax polish or danish oil, both of which are available to order in small tins online. Click here to view our wood finishes.
We can also supply concealed fixing supports which are also available to order online, click here to view. We recommend at least 2 brackets for 4ft beams, 3 for 5ft beams and 4 for 6ft beams.

Important: Please be aware that oak is a natural product: Each beam is different, you will not receive the beam in the photo. Each beam varies with regards to colour, grain, cracks and knots. Beam section size may be up to 3/4″ smaller than the size stated. Although beams are air dried for around 3 years to our North Yorkshire climate it is not unusual for your beam to crack or shrink as it adjusts to your central heated home. This is quite normal and adds to the character of your beam. Some beams may have small areas of pin holing (usually in any sap wood), these areas are treated with anti infestation solution. A small percentage of beams may have up to two waney edges. Please use the images as a guide only. Please be aware that none of the above can be treated as defects.
If for some reason you would like to return your beam, just send it back to us within 14 days of delivery and we’ll refund you in full.
