About Our Mantels
Often the center-point of a living space, the fireplace is where we gather to relax, cuddle up, and be with the ones we love. Our reclaimed wood fireplace mantelsare handcrafted to bring a sense of warmth and history to your cherished space. These solid wood beams are salvaged from century-old barns and grain elevators in ND & MN. We then hand select the most unique pieces and meticulously tend to them until they are ready for their new home. Choose between one-of-a-kind pieces that are in-stock and ready to ship or order a custom piece if you have specific size and color requirements.
Like all of our products, our mantel lumber is kiln-dried. All mantel lengths can be trimmed to size, come pre-drilled to accept our floating bracket hardware, and are ready to install.

How long will it take for my mantel to ship?
In-stock mantels usually ship within 5-7 business days.
How do I install my mantel?
All of our fireplace mantels come pre-drilled to accept our innovative mounting bracket system. The bracket can be purchased separately. You can view our installation video.
What color will my mantel be?
The mantel you view and purchase online is the mantel you will receive so please view images carefully.
How wide should a fireplace mantel be?
This is a matter of preference but we can custom cut the length of your mantel to whatever size you request. The mantel should not be shorter than the length of the actual fireplace. It is recommended that the mantel extend at least 4 inches beyond the firebox opening and if the fireplace has a surround it typically will extend at least 3-6 inches beyond that.
