Log Style Mantels have a large inventory of rustic mantel shelves ready for immediate shipping. The styles include, bark face, natural face, draw knife and carved face. In stock mantels can be custom cut to length. Log Style Mantels are sawed over 4″ thick to offer a bold look above the fireplace. After kiln drying, planing and sanding, the finished thickness will end up between 3 1/2″ and 4″.
The width of the mantels will vary depending on the size of the log, but the narrowest pieces are about 7 inches wide and the widest can be as much as 12 inches or more. Often the natural shape of the log can cause the mantel to vary in width along its length.
Because each log is different, the front face of each mantel is unique. Some will be smooth along the face, while others will have knots or character marks showing. It is common for a Log Style Mantel to have some splits on the top, bottom, or ends because of the shrinkage that occurs during the drying process. This does not affect the structural strength of the mantel and often adds to the character of the piece.
