Log and timber fireplace mantel design options include determining the final desired length for a mantel. There are a few size choices:

1) Most customers have the mantels made long enough to be held in from each side equally. Generally, if a certain diameter stone, brick or tile is used, (example: 3-6”+/- dia.) Take an average of the material size, and use this as a guideline to hold mantel in equal distance from both sides.

2) Some customers desire their rustic mantel to be as long as the actual width of the fireplace. Visually, the mantel becomes a natural divider.

3) Rustic wood mantels can also be made wider than the fireplace. Average overhang from fireplace structure can be 2-6” each side, or as desired.

Log mantels and the rustic wood style mantels may also have the optional lower corbels added. These can accent the fireplace and mantel-however the corbels are strictly cosmetic. If considering corbels, take the floor to ceiling height of your overall fireplace into account. At times, corbels on a mantel may overwhelm a fireplace design if it is not a tall fireplace unit. Here, one may opt to use a little taller of a mantel for a nicer medium.


Antique timber mantels-these mantels can also be designed in an elegantly rustic style, a medium rustic or extremely rustic mantel style.

Open or filled notches and the wood pegs add authentic details to a timber mantel, and can be placed anywhere desired. Any rustic mantel design can be done. Corbels can also be added if desired. Photos below where mantels made per customer requests. Have some mantels designs / idea of your own? Contact us for further assistance.
