Bespoke Oak beams
With over 20 years experience in the sawmilling industry Carlton wood mill is best placed in assisting are customers with their bespoke projects that require a bespoke Oak beam. All Carlton Wood Mills oak beams are English not European meaning they are suitable for those individuals working on restoration projects. We are able to offer our Oak beams in several finishes including medium oak waxed, clear waxed and if desired unfinished ready for the customer to finish to their own personal preference. Carlton wood mill stock both green oak beams and air dried oak beams. We generally advise that Green oak is only suitable for outdoor projects as the seasoning process of the oak can take place over many years allowing the oak to adjust to the customers ambient air moisture content M/C. However If Green Oak is placed close to a heat source then there is a real risk of the timber warping. Where Oak is to be used in a heated house then air dried Oak is required as the oak has already lost the majority of its Moisture content and thus the opportunity for the Oak to shrink and twist will be limited. Whatever your project or concern our team at carlton wood mill is best placed to advise you accordingly.
