Description

Celtic Timber is the UK’s leading supplier in the sale of oak beams for fireplaces, fire surrounds and mantles. Our beams are handcrafted by our team on-site in order to make the perfect oak fireplace or oak mantelpiece for your home. Ideal for oak beam kitchen lintels as well as fireplace beams.

Our solid oak beam range of fireplaces and mantelpieces have each been handworked and are available air-dried in a variety of sizes and finishes.

  • Note: If you have chosen a ‘Lightly Worked’ or a ‘Heavily Worked’ beam from the above choices, unless specified in the ‘Order Notes’ upon checking out, we will work the largest beam face. Please state in the order notes section if you have a specific requirement or want the beam a different way. if you are not sure of the difference between the finishes, please watch our video at the bottom of the page.
  • If you are looking for a custom size beam, please order the size above what you require and specify your chosen size in the ‘Order Notes’ section of the checkout. We will ensure that it is planed to your specific required dimensions.
  • The cross-section sizes listed are starting sizes and will reduce by up to 20mm on each face after being planed and sanded so you may wish to order the next size up to allow for this.
  • Please refer to imperial sizes (inches and feet) for accurate lengths and cross-sections. Metric dimensions provide an approximate translation.

 

Please take note of the following before purchasing:

Oak is a natural product and therefore each individual piece will be different in appearance and will vary slightly in colour and grain. Our character grade beams may well already contain knots, surface cracks, pinholes and waney edges and cracks would be expected to develop further once they acclimatise to a new environment after purchase. Although our beams are air-dried, it also is not unusual for the oak to develop further shrinkage and movement as it continues to dry and adjust to your property’s temperature. If your beam is going to go above a fire, log burner, fire or intense heat, we recommend that the heat should be gradually increased over a period of a week or more if possible.

All of our oak is PEFC certified, meaning that it is sustainably sourced, and the forest management is environmentally appropriate, economically viable and socially beneficial management for present and future generations.

Please ensure that your beam is taken out of its wrapping immediately after receiving the delivery to allow it to breathe and adjust.

We do not pre-drill beams as customers will need to ensure that fixings are secured to the wall are in the correct place.

Depending on your choice of beam size, we will send you straight brackets, T-Shape Brackets or keyhole brackets. Should you have a preference, please leave a note in the ‘Order Notes’ section of the checkout when purchasing your oak beam.

See our image gallery for a representation of how the different coloured oils will look on your oak beam. Please bear in mind that the grain and colour of each piece of wood is different so this is a rough guide only.

If you are looking for a bespoke size beam, please order the size above what you require and specify your chosen size in the ‘Order Notes’ section of the checkout.

Planed and Sanded for the perfect finish.

    Beautiful solid (and very heavy) oak beam. Looked almost pine colour before applying the wax, but came up looking great. Really pleased and looks fantastic over the new fireplace. Not quite as heavily worked as I expected, but in retrospect, probably just the right amount for its purpose. As for fitting, mine sits on two plinths so didn’t need the fixings, but each side is perfectly level so no issues with uneven surfaces. Looks great!!

    Beautiful piece of timber, lovely colour. Only complaint is one end has been stamped, likely when being graded but it seems indelible, trying to get rid of it proving a problem. Doesn’t detract too much from the beauty of the wood. Picture shows a work in progress. We had the contemporary style, planed.

    I had to call because I thought I had made a mistake with my order and the phone was very quickly answered by someone who knew all the details of my order which was very reassuring. The oak mantel arrived within a week, an amazing service and I love the beam which is ‘lightly worked’ with some nice cracks. It really is a lovely heavy, solid piece of wood.

    The beam came with some water damage but Celtic replaced it at no cost. Unfortunately the second one had the same issue due to the delivery company not Celtic so I was offered 35% off and after some sanding it’s looking good! My only negative to Celtic would be the rawl plugs provided are not great, I had two snap in half when screwing the bracket in and think they could be a bit better quality. Got some myself and had no issues.

    Excellent product. Easy to order, rapid delivery. My only criticisim is that the plugs which the fixings fit into weren’t great – most of them collapsed when screwing in the fixings. Otherwise superb.
