Our hand-cut effect Oak Trusses are sculpted along the grain to preserve and accentuate the wood’s natural form.
We provide a design and engineer check to ensure your structure will meet building regulations, we can create spans that test the limits of design possibilities. We identify critical dimensions and identify clients design issues early, well before construction starts.

Curved Tie Truss
This Curved oak trusses pictured was especially designed with a curved tie beam sawn from selected curved logs. It was one of a set of matching 6 king post trusses made for the roof of a Turkish salon. The owners of these had an eye for detail and they knew Altham Oak would deliver.
“Considering our new curved oak truss is effectively a piece of furniture we are going to be looking at for the rest of our lives, it was important to us that we selected the right company to help us…. The truss was delivered on time, on budget and I was kept informed at each stage… There were no excuses, no surprises and no drama’s when it came to fitting… My wife hadn’t really been involved in the process until the day of delivery and says she is never really good at visualising things in advance, she was in fact blown away how nice it looks!”
