Compared to our hand hewn mantels, the rough sawn mantels feature a smoother, more refined finish. Wood mantels are ideally used for rustic fireplace mantels in a living room or even dining room. These wood beams can also be incorporated as shelving throughout the home. Wherever you decide to add these in your home decor, they’re sure to be a focal point in any room!
Reclaimed from structural beams in barns and wooden buildings, these real wood timbers have weathered the elements for years. Rough sawn mantels still feature the original circular saw marks created from early milling practices and have other characteristics common to reclaimed beams, such as nail holes, fastener holes, mortise pockets/notches, natural checking and peg holes. These unique features make each mantel shelf a one-of-a-kind masterpiece.
All rough sawn beams are surface washed and kiln dried. This product ships unfinished within 3-5 business days and pre-finished within 5-7 business days.
