0013 - Hand Hewn 72" Mantel
Harness the spirit of heritage and hard work in your space. This mantel is built from a solid wood beam harvested and hand-shaped in the late 1700s to early 1800s. The original craftsman who hand hewed this wood put in a tremendous amount of work, transforming a round tree trunk into a square beam for barn structures — a rich legacy that you can now bring home.
Our craftsmen have painstakingly repurposed this timber as a fireplace mantel, taking extreme care to preserve the naturally weathered old growth texture and patina. A protective matte finish has also been added.
