This fireplace mantel beam is made from solid, reclaimed red oak. As we sanded into the beam, we ran into lots of color variation. The medium-light colors of the red oak, accented by the dark colors of age and time.
We left a cleaned out mortise hole in this one on the face. We can leave as-is, which is pretty fun or we can fill it with an end-grain plug. We will fill at no charge.
This beam also still has the original tenon in place on the left side. We can finish up and leave in place, or we can cut it off. Again, no charge, regardless of your choice.
This beam came from a barn in Southwest Wisconsin. It dates back to the late 1800s — back in the days of horse and wagon. Imagine that — no cars, cellphones, or computers.
If this mantel is not quite right, but close in some way, send us email at email@example.com. We have plenty of other mantels in-stock -- both finished and raw. We very likely have something similar.
