Buying a fireplace mantel is an important purchase. We could compare it to buying furniture, but it’s likely going to be around a lot longer.
Careful considerations are involved. Choosing reclaimed wood over other wood available might be one of the first and best choices you can make. Less stable wood may have a tendency to dry and twist even after years of initial use.
We create wood mantels from reclaimed beams and timbers that were likely harvested over a hundred years ago and were centuries old at that time. Since then they’ve slowly seasoned over many years and often dried in place without kiln drying. The reclaimed wood we choose for mantels have been carefully culled from our wood assets and additionally kiln dried at high heat to kill any bugs that might have found refuge there. The final products represent special pieces that are ideally suited to become prized accents in your home or business.
Reclaimed wood mantels complement any home style and are a great anchor or focal point in a room. We’ll work closely with you to get specific sizes and all details just right. And we can surface finish them with oil for you~
