Timberwoods Fireplace Mantels
The Timber Woods fireplace mantels are original mantels made from reclaimed antique wood, the same as our hand hewn timber beam mantels. These have been recovered from structures dating back from the 1800’s to early 1900’s time frame and are the original timbers and original surfaces. Seldom was any electricity available in the days these timbers were made for constructing buildings, so accents such as notches(open or filled), even wood pegs can exist. These were all made by human hand and hand held tools. Some hewing accents, scribe lines, insect markings, and the cracks or checks (some small, some larger) do remain from age. These can add character and accents. The tops-are surfaced and sanded smooth for a level surface.

Best Wood For Mantels
The family of Cedars is known throughout the housing industry as one of nature’s premium wood species. It is similar to the pines in natural color. Native American Indians used cedar for canoes, shelters, even totem poles. They named cedar the "trees of life".
Popular characteristics of cedar are its ability to withstand the effects of weather, and natural resistance to many insects, making it a favored wood species to build with. Cedar mantels have an ease of installation due to their lighter weight. It also has excellent wood stability because of its tight grain (which minimizes checking/cracking more noticeable in pine species).
Other wood species such as fir, spruce, northern white pine, reclaimed timbers, and more are available.
