A fresh cut oak that has been clear-cut in the last 3 - 6 months, it is of high moisture content and is prone to shrinkage and movement during the drying process. Also known as falling boards, these oaks are used for all sorts of external and landscaping purposes.
This oak dries relatively more slowly compared with other types. Machine-sawn and straight, it can easily be cut into different precise dimensions. Sometimes displaying surface checking, splits, a little sap and a few historic bore holes, these flaws will doubtless add a little character to the finished project.
These oak beams have a minimum of 3 straight edges with tolerance of a small amount of wane to one edge. They are better utilised in the construction industry and for property renovations.
UK Timber offers both air dried and fresh sawn oak beams.
