At Venables we hold large stocks of fresh sawn (green) and air dried (seasoned) construction grade European oak. We also offer an efficient and quick sawn-to-size cutting service, and can saw beams to your specific cutting list if non-standard section sizes are preferred.
Venables have been producing and sourcing Oak from all over Europe for over five generations and have a complete understanding of the many ways of converting an oak tree, together with the different European mills’ methods of production. This thorough knowledge of the raw material and its production helps to ensure we match the grade of Oak you require to your project.
Please take the opportunity to discuss your requirements with our knowledgeable team who will be only too pleased to help guide you in choosing the grade and specification suitable for your project. Contact:
Director Chuck Venables advised the Building research establishment BREEAM on the development of the British standard for the grading of oak beams and was the first grader in the UK to be certified to grade to BS5756.
