Around here, we tend to refer to thinner (3-5 inches thick), more rectangular mantels, as “Mantel Shelves.” While people often like this style shelf for above a fireplace, we’ve seen our share of these shelves used in other locations throughout people’s homes.

For any of these, we can cut them down in length and even depth, but we can’t make ’em any longer. On most beams, we will cut to size and discount the price accordingly (often up to a $100 to $115 discount, a few offer greater discounts. Most mantels have individual notes on discounting). If you see something you like but is the wrong size, we probably have something similar available that we can custom finish for you for a comparable price.

Be sure to also look at the Mantel Beams, Ironwork, and Customer Photos pages.


Shop from our collection of pre-made beams. In this category, you’ll find more square - 8x8, 9x9, etc... kind of material.


Metal straps, rods, and other iron work can be added to our mantels. Handcrafted by a real blacksmith.
