Colour, Shape and Extras
These 3 characteristics will allow you to change the appearance of your oak beam.
There are 5 coloured waxes and a natural oil to choose from to change the colour of your beam.
In addition to these, you have the option to alter the edges of your beam to create shape and effects.
Finally, we are offering up to 2 free services:
- Brushing to create texture
- Flaming to create an aged effect
Mix & Match
Use the below images to decide how you would like your oak fireplace beam to look.
A clear wax finish that enhances the
natural colour of the oak.
A golden and more mellow colour that
slightly darkens the natural oak.
A middle ground oak colour offering warmth
and depth to the oak beam.
A nutty and darker appearance for those
wanting more a deeper colour.
More blacks and much darker tones are
shown in the Jacobean finish.
An enhanced, golden and matt appearance
is generated using oil.
The shaping of your oak beam is created along the bottom edge.
All other edges, apart from PSE (Planed, Square-Edged) have a softened edge.
The shaping is created by hand and therefore no 2 pieces are the same.
For your reference, the Gallery will show the shape and colour of each beam
A Planed, Square Edge is
created on all visible edges.
This is a slightly rounded edge and
appears on all edges of the beam.
A light undulation is created along
the bottom edge of the beam.
More character and shape is applied
to the bottom edge of the beam.
There are 2 processes we can include free of charge to enhance your oak fireplace beam.
Should you wish to have either or both of these extras, please ensure you tick the relevant box(es) on the order form.
The brushed effect creates a textured finish.
The grain is lifted and will slightly loose the smooth sanded appearance.
The flaming effect creates an aged finish.
This procedure also darkens the oak and therefore also darkens any coloured waxes shown.
