Rustic Fireplace Mantels - Hewn Timber Beam

Along with the Rustic Log Mantle selections, Best of Nature offers the
 Hewn Timber Beam Fireplace mantel shelf.

These antique wood mantel timbers can average 150-200+ years of age! The ages of these
wood timber beams were 100+/- years old when harvested for the construction-coupled with the
fact that most structures the timbers were used for average 125-150 years old or more,
making for a truly genuine, antique fireplace mantel. Old growth, virgin timbers are a very rare find!
Our Woodsmiths craft your timber mantel meticulously by hand, into a
beautiful hewn timber beam mantel.

Options you can add to Timber Mantels

*Open or filled notches, pegs and dowels: Back in the 1800's, master craftsmen used
wooden pegs and dowels to connect the timber joints. Notches were made by hand with
chisels/mallets to join the intersecting timber members. Dowel pegs that project
slightly can simulate a knot-a nice addition! These details can be added to your
mantel, to preserve a true antique mantel design.

Rustic Mantel - Illinois   Testimonial:
Many thanks again for your quick turn around in creating the mantle and getting it to me as well as for all the guidance in answering my questions.  You were fantastic to work with.  It's amazing that you're more than 1000 miles away, yet I felt like you were right next door and that I was working with you in person the whole time.  The mantle came out even better than expected.  I'm glad I found you guys.  Thanks again!           - Todd

Note: Most of the antique wood mantels seen in above photos and other pages (antique fireplace designs or fireplace mantel designs, and the more rustic mantels page) of the website show the 6-6 tall mantles. Many customers like the more massive appearance and accents these mantels feature.

We offer heights of 7-9 1/2 or more if larger mantel is needed.

*Note: We hand hewn sizes from 3-5 tall, to accommodate custom applications.
When comparing products/prices, take every detail into account-including the quality/smoothness of the hewn mantel surfaces, and overall sizes relative to height and depth. One noticeable detail is that our hand hewn timber mantels are handcrafted on the front face AND THE BOTTOM, as a true antique timber mantel should be! All the textured surfaces of your mantel are smoothly hand-sanded. Smooth so you can feel the handcrafted textures and accents!  The tops are sanded smooth and flat for a level, user-friendly surface!

Finishing options:
Some customers like to do the mantel finishing themselves. Our wood mantels are sanded smooth and surfaces cleaned/ prepared for finishing.
Other customers want their mantel finished, so upon arrival, it is ready for installation.
We apply approx. 2 coats of the stain tone desired, followed by 2-3 coats of clear satin topcoats, all hand applied and hand sanded between the final coats for a furniture grade smooth finish. Finish prices vary based on mantel size and options selected.
Prior to the staining, we make a color chip from the mantel, and apply 3-4 stain colors close to the tone you want, and email them to you for your review and approval.
