Fireplace Mantel and Surround
Full fireplace surrounds combine a beam mantel and brackets with stiles and rail of matching wood. The fireplace mantel and surround stiles and rail have nice edge details like stop bevels on the stiles and a bead on the rail.
The surround easily goes together with mortise and tenon joints. The mantel is fastened to the wall as described in the Mantel Installation PDF.
As with all custom work, you can specify wood type, dimensions and character of the fireplace mantel and surround.
We make our custom fireplace mantel and surrounds with salvaged antique American Chestnut and White Oak (other wood sometimes available). The old wood has a unique character and patina unmatched by new hardwoods. Nail holes and worm holes, as well as tight ring growth and the unique color of age make these fireplace mantels and surrounds outstanding for rustic home furnishings and log home decor.
The fireplace mantels with surrounds shown here are examples and are already sold. We occasionally have some Fireplace Mantels and Surrounds In Stock ready to ship, although most of our work is custom.
