We have been providing tons (literally... metric tons!) of reclaimed wood mantels to home owners and home builders this spring. From rustic to refined- we can cut, mill, sand, stain, and finish a custom reclaimed mantel to a nearly endless variety of sizes and styles.
Our mantels are all made to order from reclaimed timbers that once lived as beams in barns, grain elevators, and other buildings throughout the Midwest. Our lumber yard is full of these reclaimed beauties just waiting to be transformed and installed above your cozy fireplace!
We are happy to sell raw, unfinished timbers for use as mantels but are better known for making ready to install, pre-finished reclaimed mantels. We even sell custom-made mounting hardware manufactured right here in Fargo by a local welding company!
Whether you are looking for a super rustic mantel or something a little more modern with cleaner lines, we can achieve just about any look through milling, machining, and finishing techniques. Our showroom in Fargo, ND displays some of our most popular sizes and styles and we are always happy to help you determine the right size and decide on the right finish for your particular project.
Reclaimed Mantel FAQ
Q: How much do mantels cost?
A: Mantels are priced by the board foot which is a unit of volume for timbers. You can download a quick reference sheet for pricing your mantel here or contact us with your specific size and style for a custom quote.
Q: How do I install my mantel? / Will you install my mantel?
A: Our favorite way to install mantels is using our custom made mounting hardware. Our staff can consult with you to determine how many brackets you will need for your mantel and advise you on the process. We are unable to offer install services at this time but we do have a list of talented local craftsman that we refer for these types of projects. Building a home? Your home builder will mostly likely be able to see to the installation of your mantel :)
Q: Can I pick out the exact beam used for my mantel?
A: We have pretty limited showroom space so the mantels we have on display are only examples of different styles and finishes that are available. We usually choose the beam that we will use for your mantel based on your desired "look", keeping in mind your preference for nail holes, notches, splits, and other characteristics. If you are hoping to hand-select your beam we encourage you to make an appointment so that we can have a staff member walk you through our yard.
