Welcome To AJ Rustic Oak
A J Rustic Oak is a family business run by Adrian and Jen. Our rustic oak fire surrounds and other products are individually and lovingly hand crafted by time served tradesmen from solid oak at our dedicated workshop in Lancashire.
The oak beams are carefully fashioned from selected green oak. Once installed in your home, green oak continues to age , season and develop cracks. This natural process really enhances the visual effect to produce a far superior and characterful look.
The mass produced cheap veneered surrounds that are available today simply cannot compete with the authentic look of the real thing.
All of our surrounds are “one off” originals. We will design and fashion your oak surround to your exact measurements and add rebates if required. We will also do our best to incorporate your bespoke design features into the surround. Simply discuss your required features with us when ordering and we will do our utmost to integrate these individual characteristics into the design.
Many customers have asked us for “pegs” to be added to the surround in order to give a farmhouse look. Others have asked for a curved centre timber, and some have even asked for specific words or dates to be carved into the oak – either on the edge of the mantle or on the centre timber.
The choice of oak finish is entirely up to you. Although we usually finish them with clear wax, both light and dark finishes are also available.
Please feel free to contact us for more information. We are here to help you and we place a great pride in our superb workmanship and loyal customer base.
