Custom-Milled Oak Beams

Fresh Sawn Prime Grade Beams

Our prime grade fresh sawn beams are chosen from the best logs, selected and purchased from sustainable sources.

These beams have four straight edges with no bark showing. Some knots are acceptable but only live knots. No rot is allowed in prime grade beams and deflection is minimal.

These beams are structurally sound for use in all joinery applications.

Fresh Sawn Character Grade Beams

Character grade fresh sawn beams are selected from sustainably sourced timber that has more knots in it than prime grade.

Knots can be alive or dead and some minimal amounts of rot or stain are acceptable. At least three edges are straight sawn but sapwood and some wane is acceptable. Heart shake is acceptable on two faces and some deflection is also permissible.

Character grade beams are structural grade and are suitable for green oak construction.
