Mantel Styles

Our log style mantels are custom made from native hardwood. We have selected six naturally robust species which have proven to be superior over other varieties: Basswood, Butternut, CherryEastern Red Cedar, Elm, and Walnut. These particular hardwoods retain their strength and stability during the kiln drying process and exhibit less shrinking, twisting, and cracking as compared to other classes of wood. Click here to learn more about these wood species.

When we talk about "style," we're referring to the face or the front of the mantel. This is the surface that is most visible in your living space. We offer five styles to suit your preference:

Natural Face:

During the sawing and kiln drying process, the bark of certain trees falls off. The exposed wood show clear definition and the true shape of the log, in addition to any knots, wormholes or other markings. (Image features Eastern Red Cedar species)


Bark Face:

This rustic style is the result of the bark holding firmly to the wood during the manufacturing process. Because this effect is less likely to occur, you may find that our inventory is limited. Please be advised that the bark which has successfully adhered to the log mantel is not guaranteed to stay tight indefinitely. It may require tacks or glue. You'll be reassured to know that our customers who have chosen and installed bark face mantels over the past 15 years have experienced minimal issues. (Image features Basswood variety)


Square Face:

For a more traditional looking mantel that features a flat surface on all sides, you'll appreciate the square face style. Remember - this is a solid piece of wood! just as if you were to get timber from your local lumber yard or hardware store to construct the framework of a home or building. Our mantels are not pieces of particle board that are glued together. The face of the mantel will display the lovely, consistent grain patterns the same grain patterns and can be seen on the top, bottom and sides of the mantel.
