These custom mantels are made to the exact size of your fireplace. The most popular styles of mantels are milled and rustic. The milled beam style starts with a 6x6 cedar beam, and the wood is distressed to give the appearance of an aged beam. The rustic mantel style is actually "hand hewn", which is the authentic way to make a squared beam from a round log, before there were sawmills.  This is done entirely with a cross-cut saw, an axe, and many, many strokes. This is back breaking work, but the look of a hand-hewn beam cannot be duplicated in any other way. This more authentic method, due to the labor intensive nature, is more pricey. Both styles can completely change the look of your fireplace and come in a range of stain colors. Other styles include a live edge mantel (where the bark is still intact on one side) and a natural rounded log front.
