Original Timber Woods Mantles - ORIG5A
During construction, after hand sawing and hewing was completed, notches were then applied with hand held chisels and wooden mallets. Mortise and tenon joints were used for connecting intersecting timbers. Wooden pegs were then used to hold the adjoined timbers together. When these timber structures are taken apart, the joints/pegs may be exposed. There may also be original marks such as hewing accents, scribe lines, insect markings, and the cracks or checks (some small, some larger) from age. These can add character and remain as accents. Existing open notches can be filled at times. There may be notches present on some sides or every side. Mantel craftsmen at Best of Nature will trim the mantel to your required length, square the ends top to bottom and front to back, then sand ends so they are smooth to the touch. The top side is surfaced and sanded smooth for a level surface, and if notches/pegs were existing in top, they are filled with wood trimmed from the mantel piece. The heights and depths are somewhat flexible but may be a bit limited due to positions of existing notches and pegs. Many of these can be made shorter if needed. Being a reclaimed original wood mantle, (and even though we do the prep work such as sanding and cleaning), the Timber Woods fireplace mantel style can have a rougher surface.

Reclaimed Timber Mantel

Inventory

Countree Living/Best of Nature has handcrafted custom mantels

for over 30 years.

The Timber Woods fireplace mantels by Best of Nature are mantels made from reclaimed original antique wood, the same as our hand hewn timber (HTB style) mantels. Most of these have been recovered from structures dating back from the 1810 to early 1900 time frame and are original timbers. These homestead builders relied heavily on the strength of their joinery, as very little metal was used due to its availability.

If you see a mantel you like in the photos above, contact us at (715) 588-1241 with the photograph #/Info of which mantel for an exact price based on your specified length. Mantels will be sized to the exact length you need. We produce mantels of many sizes and any length needed. The photo below (left side) shows an original timber beam prior to the handcrafting.  Notice the white coatings on this timber? This was a material used in dairy barns where cows were milked. Farmers used this “whitewashing process” to keep ceilings and walls in the milking barns cleaner.  Our handcrafting and hewing removes all the whitewash so there is a fresh new surface for staining and finishing!
