Customizable Rough Sawn Mantel


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

The narrower depth of this rough sawn fireplace mantel keeps the shelf from extending too far into your room. At 2 in x 8 in, these rough cut building materials are among our smallest fireplace shelving options, and are lightweight. The rough cut shelving has a smoother, more refined surface than the hand hewn options, but still showcase the saw marks from the original woodworking that occurred more than a century ago.

Reclaimed from building materials of old barns and wooden structures across the U.S., this shelving has characteristics like fastener holes, nail holes, and natural weathering. You’ll be able to really see the skilled woodworking and durability of this dimensional lumber. Each rough cut mantel features a square edge, and can be installed as floating shelving or with the added support of corbels.

We cut the actual product to your desired length, and have a range of customization options available. All of our mantels and shelving are made from original reclaimed dimensional lumber and may have variations in dimensions up to 1 inch. Wooden mantels come in a mix of hardwoods and softwoods, such as Douglas fir and yellow pine. Each rough cut mantel is surface washed and kiln dried to remove the moisture content from the wood. Unfinished products typically ship within 3-5 business days; pre-finished within 5-7 business days. Contact us to ask for more information about our pricing and customizations.

While this is one of our lightweight wooden mantels, it should only be installed by a professional diy-er. To ensure your absolute satisfaction with the actual product, we recommend having your new rough cut mantel installed by a professional contractor. There are several methods for installation of the rough sawn mantel shelf. Most installation methods include lag bolts (some of the toughest fasteners) designed to be used with masonry for stone fireplace installations. There are also lag bolts that will go through drywall directly into wall studs. Fireplace mantels can be installed as floating shelving 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.
