Antique Floor – Reclaimed Rock Elm



Out of stock

Product Description

Rock Elm is an unsung hero of the woods available in the reclaimed industry. It is virtually unavailable on the modern, commercial market. As one Canadian paper company’s website says, “Today, the species is much too rare for commercial uses.”

However, Rock Elm is found fairly regularly in Wisconsin and Canada in old barns. It has a fairly light color with a hardness between oak and maple, and has the grain patterns of the Elm family. The old stuff has a nice range of color within a given board.

Rock Elm is a “must see” kind of wood. We love it here!

Prices vary by Size:

3″,4″,5″,6″ Mixed 3/4in Solid – $8.50

More Mantel Inventory

You can shop some available mantel beams and thinner mantel shelves on this website. 

However, our website here only contains a small number of all of the mantels that we have in stock.
We are literally a mom-and-pop shop that does lots of custom work. We often just don’t quite find enough time to update this website regularly.
We have nearly 150 finished mantels and another 500 or so unfinished pieces in stock at any time that can be viewed with other links. 

We also do lots of custom work. If we understand what you are seeking, we can find and create that magic piece.

Please contact us for a full list and personal recommendations. We’re happy to chat and find a great piece for you.

We work with a great local blacksmith to add metal straps and other ornamentation to our mantels. He is the real deal — coal forged and hand hammered. The metalwork has great color and tight fit. Nothing machined. We can start with a finished mantel you find on our site, or we can start with raw stock for more options.

Here are a few examples of the hundreds that we have crafted over the years. We can work together to create something unique. You can also browse our Mantels with Metalwork page.

In most cases, no special and expensive brackets are required — just some lag screws. The different approaches outlined are very strong, simple, and economical. Take a look at our mantel installation tips.
