    Solid Oak Timber


    These oak mantel beams are handcrafted from the very best quality solid oak timber. The timber is air-dried and will therefore continue to dry out as it settles into its new environment. You can expect some movement to occur during this time.

    Each oak mantel is cut to size and finished in our workshop. This leaves in lots of natural, rustic timber characteristics and features. Mother Nature's own stamp of approval.

    In this timber you can expect to find splits, cracks, knots, shakes, waney edges, bows and twists along with sticker shadows and machine marks in keeping with the rustic style. These are the qualities that set our shelving apart from the rest. And due to the nature of solid wood every shelf will be different. Truly unique. One of a kind. Rustic timber.

    You can expect to see some movement within the oak as it settles in to its new environment. Please note that placing your item above or near to a heat source can cause this movement to exaggerate the timbers natural features further, particularly splits, cracks and twists.

    But that's not it. The main feature is the stunning wood grain running through the timber. And the growth rings are plain to see on the ends.

    All sizes and weights given are approximate. As we only use natural, solid timber, measurements can change slightly from one piece to another.

    Fine Wax Finishes

    To finish these chunky oak mantels, we use your choice of one of our supreme wax polishes.

    Wax not only makes the timber look good, but it is also very durable. You can easily wipe away spillages. And cleaning is very simple. Just wipe with a clean cloth and warm water then leave to dry. But never use harsh chemical cleaners.

    The finish is professionally applied with the highest attention to detail. And as the wax soaks into the different grains and features it enhances their look and brings them to life. The colours are:

    • English Oak
    • Smoke Oak

    We also have our unwaxed option, ideal if you have your own finish to apply:

    • Natural Oak

    When viewing on screen colours can look different from one screen to another. Because you want the perfect colour for your home these finishes are available to purchase as small samples.


    Excellent, exactly as described. Ideal for what we wanted. Very good quality and price.

    Future Maintenance with Wax Care Packs

    We have wax care packs available to keep your oak mantel looking its best.

    They're also brilliant for fixing damage. A small amount of wax will fix a scratch. Order your wax care pack here.

    Strong Fixings & Easy Installation


    When you receive your oak mantel beam, the packaging will also include fixings. We provide you with fixings that have been designed specifically for the installation of our wooden shelves and mantels. We would recommend fixing it to solid wall types only. With the help of a professional joiner, or a skilled DIY enthusiast they can be fitted to timber frame walls as well. As this item is made from air-dried oak, it is not suitable for insetting into, or sealing onto the wall, doing so may cause the timber to move in an unnatural way.

    We are not able to guarantee the mantel if you do not use the fixings we supply, if they are installed using alternative fitting methods, or if they are installed into alternative wall types.

    To help you with the installation we also have fitting video guides available. You can view them on our YouTube Channel.

    Turnaround & Delivery


    As these oak mantel beams are handmade we do require some time for manufacturing. This will normally take 7 working days. They will then be dispatched and will usually be delivered within 1-2 working days providing that there are no courier delays. It is important to open your delivery as soon as it is received so that this can be checked over, and so that the wood can breathe.

    Orders with multiple items will be dispatched according to the longest lead time. To receive your quicker lead time items without having to wait, just place separate orders.

    If you would like to return the order, please contact us within 14 days of receiving the order.
