We fabricate mantelpieces in a few styles:
Our most poplular style for mantelpieces is to make them as hollow boxes, using 1" lumber. This style has a few advantages; it is much lighter than a full beam, it can be made from the wood of your choice, and it can be fabricated to the dimensions that you need.
Full beam mantels are another category. We have some barn beams, and also different timber pieces that can be used for mantelpieces.
Live-edge slabs are another group. With one edge cut straight, the natural edge of the mantelpiece can be quite impressive.

A mantelpiece made as a hollow-box from yellow birch. Yellow birch, beside having nice color and grain, provides best results when you stain it. This piece is fabricated without any varnish, and is ready to take the stain of your choice. Dimensions of this mantelpiece are over 5" thick, 7" deep, and 69" long (wide).
