Quick Overview

Our hand planed air dried oak beams are supplied from stock to order. The timber has a natural light colour with plenty of characterful cracks and splits.

There is an additional set-up charge of £30 per order for hand planing which will be automatically added in the shopping cart. This is a one-off fee per order - regardless of the quantity of beams ordered.

The planing process reduces the size of the beam by about 3-5mm on each face, the ends are left sawn. The dimensions listed are nominal sizes (i.e. the beam's size before planing).

IMPORTANT: When ordering please be aware that oak beams are extremely heavy and you will need to be able to unload them. Our delivery vehicles do not have cranes or forklifts and the driver is not insured to unload the truck. You will need to provide your own offloading equipment or have sufficient physically capable persons present at delivery to facilitate the offloading process.

Resized Hand Planed Oak Beams

Our hand planed air dried oak beams can be cut down to your preferred size for an additional charge, however, we do not cut to any dimension to less than 100mm.

Due to stock availability, resized beams may not necessarily be cut down from beams with specific dimensions. Beam selection for resizing will take place by us, on site, at the time that we produce your order. We will not produce two (or more) sections from one single beam ordered and offcuts are not provided.

2m Oak Beam for our mantlepiece
All sides were entirely presentable in their own right. I struggled to decide which should face outwards.
Champhered the edges and with two coats of hard wax oil it is now in-situ. Looks lovely.

Beam has made a fantastic addition to our home.
We're so pleased with the beam supplied to us by British hardwoods. Delivery was on the day we requested by a very friendly driver. The wood was really well finished and now takes pride of place in our living room. Can definitely recommend this company.

Quality timber but cutting / sizing terrible.
Ordered three peices of timber, 3 beans one of them split to make two smaller section sizes. When the timber turned up the timer sizes from the split beam were nothing similar, despite paying for the planning service. I had to find a local timber merchant to run the timbers through a thicknesser many times to make the two beams the same size. Quality of the timber was good, looks lovely oiled up.

Good quality product please note comments on delivery.
These very heavy beams arrived with just one driver with the expectation that I would have strong labour available to unload. I managed to get some local builders to unload but it is unreasonable to assume that strong labour will be available without prior arrangement.
Can I suggest that you check with customer before delivery. The beams are lovely.

Great Quality and Service
Was quoted £180 by a local timber merchant for a 1.5m long 8" x 4" air dried and planed solid oak beam for a fireplace . I am very glad I found British Hardwoods as it came in at £78 and I don't think you could better the quality of the finished product or the customer service, Have told a few friends how good the experience was and will make this my first stop for any future orders

Just what I wanted
Was looking for a 1.5 m long 8" x 4" oak beam for a fireplace and was quoted £180 including VAT from a local timber merchant. Thought this was a tad expensive so went online and was very pleased to come across the British Hardwoods website as they quoted £78 including VAT. It is nice and flat but retains all the splits and character I requested on the upper surface. Very happy with the quality, the price and the experience and will go straight to British Hardwoods for any future orders.

Three oak beams
The beams went from 178mm to 186mm on two sides (opposites) of every beam but were perfect on the other sides, luckily I found a perfect side that looked outwards that was straight, and put the ones that ran out on top (mantle pieces). That's the reason for 3 stars on quality, otherwise would have been 5!
