As Oak is a natural product each piece may be different in appearance and slightly in colour. The grain of each beam will vary, some may have a straighter grain than others.
Presented pictures are for illustrative purposes only and serve to demonstrate what we can do for you with regard to colour and edge finishes. Our character beams may already contain surface cracks - caused by the natural drying process, most contain knots, swirls and other imperfections, knots, pin holes, & waney edges. For solid oak (as opposed to engineered one) splits/cracks are very natural and NORMAL, even for oak seasoned for years, and this is because when the board is first cut/mill is then put away and stored for years not touched. Once we process it, internal tensions/pressures will start to play its part and make the wood split. A small percentage of beams have area's of pin holing which are always treated for woodworm.Although properly air dried & seasoned, it is not unusual for the oak to develop further shrinkage, movement, splits and cracks as it acclimatises to your properties temperature, some small splits (especially at the end of shelf/beam might occur in Prime wood as well). Please do not expose your oak to direct sun/log burner heat or a damp/wet conditions as it'll cause further cracking. We recommend that if the beams are going above a log burner, fire or any intense heat, that the heat should be gradually increased over a period of a few weeks or more if possible. Regular oiling/waxing will help keep the wood afresh and moisturized, preventing the wood from excessive dryness & splitting. Any of the above can only add a great deal of character to the beam. Oak wood is quite cheeky when it comes to treating it in a way that two pieces treated with same oil/stain might return different shades. This is due to a number of factors, such as moisture, age, grade and so on. Hence producing or colour matching is very tricky indeed and we would rather use "similar" than "exact" definition when going about this.
Below we'll try and explain our finishes we do, starting from the lightest one, all of them are natural, matt finishes and we only use highest quality products of Fiddes&Sons. It's simple as its sound, well not really, again, each piece of oak will be different in colour, one darker than the other. Sometimes one end of beam/shelf might be light and the other darker. On the good note though, its best way to have it if you are not sure at the point of ordering.Neutral & natural, gives you unlimited possibilities to play with. Gives nice and natural finish, sometimes is a bit "cold", very durable and resistant to wear and tear. Good for floating shelves, and contemporary looking pieces. Warm and deep, highlights all the wood's imperfections such as knots/splits etc. Nicely brownish, deep and warm finish, add elegance and style to any piece of oak. Darkest of them all, deep brown with blackish shades. Will definitely become a focal point in any settings for its dramatic, sometimes eerie look.
