42 inch Oak Great Beam

We make Fireplaces from 1920s Art Deco fireplaces and classic Edwardian fireplace and mantel designs.

Great Beams are cut from the heart of the oak log and therefore reveal lots of character including knots, splits and shakes.

Great Beams are made from Air-dried Oak ( not available in Prime Oak or Pine )

Every beam is unique and skillful workmanship further enhances the beam with progressive levels of ageing (Rustic, Dressed, Aged and Extremely Aged). They can be up to 3 metres long.

Surface Texture and Ageing

  • Rustic Oak is the least aged. The corner of the beams are lightly distressed but the surfaces have a smooth finish
  • Dressed Oak have deeply contoured edges combined with smooth surfaces
  • Aged Oak has distressing both on the corners and surfaces creating a beam with an authentic aged appearance
  • Extremely Aged beams are made to look even older by sculpting, contouring and distressing the face of the beam to give a time-worn appearance.

Each beam is then beautifully finished with your choice of colour. Nine shades are available:

Light Medium Oak

Medium Oak

Medium Dark Oak

Sawn Oak

Silvered Oak

Ebony Oak

Natural Waxed Oak

Additional Corbels are available

An Easy-fix bracket, designed to simplify the fitting of the heavier beams and shelves is available
