These mantels have been accented with specific Craftsman details. They may have smooth surfaces from sanding or planing, or be carved, scored, routed or charred. Species plays a significant role in Craftsman custom fireplace mantels because they focus emphasis on virgin wood grain patterns … the mystery inside old wood.
AVAILABLE EITHER SOLID OR ENGINEERED
A smooth texture is created by planing away the rough surface to expose the grain of the wood. Once removed, the wood shows off the subtleties of the interior grain patterns and its rich natural color, which we call “the mystery within the wood.”
