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.

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. Please note that we cannot guarantee the mantels if installed using any alternative fitting methods.
