Product Description

Sold! Jaclyn R

This reclaimed ash beam boasts a contemporary taupe and grey color palette that would complement current decor styles. The front face exhibits hints of texture from classic old circle sawmills, while the top and bottom have been cut flat to form a more practical rectangular shape measuring 5.5 x 7.5 inches. Its smaller size also makes it suitable for use with an 8 to 9ft ceiling.

This particular beam came from an early 1900s vintage barn. These source beams were actually part of a more modern lean-to that was attached to the barn.

The piece is “mortise pocket” free — meaning that there are no rectangular holes that were filled.

We can cut this mantel shorter and refinish the ends for an additional for no additional cost.

It can be shipped anywhere in the lower 48 states via FedEx Gnd for $150

About the tag – Dafty – “They called him ‘Dafty’ yet we owe radio to his theories.” This is an old schoolbook reference to James Clerk Maxwell, a mid-1800s Scottish mathematician and scientist responsible for the classical theory of electromagnetic radiation describing electricity, magnetism, and light as different manifestations of the same phenomenon for the first time. His discoveries helped usher in the era of modern physics, laying the foundation for such fields as special relativity and quantum mechanics.

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.
