Hand Hewn Fireplace Mantel 8×8

Customizable Hand Hewn Mantel


Exact length can be customized in the order notes section at check out. Please round up to the nearest foot.

Our mid-sized fireplace mantel is the perfect fit in many locations. At 8 inches by 8 inches thick, beam mantels provide a rustic look that can’t be replicated and a solid wood structure that is made to last. These wood mantel shelves were created by hand using a broad axe and retain the charm of the artisans who created them. Salvaged from reclaimed barn beams, a rustic fireplace mantel has qualities like nail holes, mortise pockets, notches, and peg holes. Compared to a stone fireplace, these features add depth and history to this focal point in your living room.

Not just for fireplace mantel shelves, our hand hewn wood beams can be added as a floating shelf in any room! We’ll cut the wood beam to your desired length to ensure it’s the right fit for your fireplace mantel shelf or dining room shelf. Whether you need a 4-foot, 6-foot or 8-foot wood mantel, we have a range of length options to choose from!

All of our wood fireplace mantels and shelving is made from original reclaimed barn wood and may have variations in dimensions up to 1 inch. All fireplace mantels are surface washed and kiln dried. This product ships unfinished within 3-5 business days and pre-finished within 5-7 business days. Matching corbels and related products are also available.

Proper product installation is the key to success in every job! We recommend having your new home improvement project installed by a professional contractor rather than diy to ensure that you’re satisfied with the wood mantel product. There are several methods for installation of the fireplace mantel shelf. Most installation methods include lag bolts designed to be used with masonry for stone installations or lag bolts that will go directly into wall studs. Fireplace mantels can be installed as a floating mantel or have the added support of corbels. We’re happy to answer any questions you may have along the way, or provide any guidance for recommended care and maintenance of your rustic fireplace mantel.
