Hand Hewn Mantels

Perfect Hand Hewn Red Pine Mantel

Perfect Hand Hewn Red Pine Mantel

6.5″x7″x5’11”

Okay, really like this piece. Almost perfect but the back has some bigger checking (crack from drying 150 years ago) as red pine does but no mortises and perfect hand hewn marks not to coarse and not too smooth. Darker patina and the size are nice too.
If you want a nice piece buy this one.

Hand Hewn White Pine Mantel

Hand Hewn White Pine Mantel

6″x6″x5’5″

This nice hand hewn white pine beam mantel has a mortise on the back side and a soft naily bottom side keeping the price down. You could put that side against the wall if you don’t mind a mortise on the top or bottom side depending on how installed. We do have a picture of those sides. The nice thing about white pine is it gets a pretty aged patina with a soft rustic sometimes more distressed look. Very light weight and almost always straight for easy install.

Nicely distressed Hand Hewn Pine Mantel

Nicely distressed Hand Hewn Pine Mantel

6″x6″x6’11”

This one is nicely distressed from being next to an entry with farm hands and live stock hitting against it over years. White pine is a soft wood so it allows for some nice rustic distressing we like to see in reclaimed wood. There are 2 mortises on 1 side. 1 is filled, and then 2 hinge notches opposite side. Pretty much like the one above but a little longer.

Big Hand Hewn White Pine Mantels

Big Hand Hewn White Pine Mantels

8″x9″x7’7″

This is a beautiful piece. Sister to the one above but the better half of that long beam. The hewing is just right and with no pockets for such a big beam it is pretty rare. We liked the picture we took on the saw horses better so we decided to use it for the post. Hope you like it as much as we do and it finds a good home. It is really worth more than we have it priced but summer time is always slow for mantels so we have it listed at this cost for now. White pine is surprisingly light weigh but being this big it will have some heft to it. Nothing a real strong man or two small boys couldn’t pick up at about 135lbs.

Hand Hewn Basswood Beam

6″x6″x6’10”

A smooth hewn basswood with mortises on 3 sides for folks who like them. This is the best side out in the picture with 2 mortises facing the back and one on top and bottom. The patina and hewing are real nice and we left the tendons on there to go with the mortise look if you can use the whole length. Think it is a pretty cool piece to make a statement for the right price, person, and décor.

Hand Hewn Basswood Beam

Hand Hewn Basswood Beam

6″x7.5″x7’6″

Hewn basswood with 3 rafter notches on the back top side and a live bottom front corner. We believe the notches should face up because generally you will put decorations on the top to hide them versus the bottom side you will be looking at all the time when you are sitting by the fireplace. We tell people that all the time and they are generally enlightened. Also best to have the live corner face down so the top has a deeper shelf space for décor also. If this piece is longer than you need we can cut it down for a $20.00 shop fee and some folks will use the scrap to fill the notches. The desirable bigger depth versus height is what is keeping the price up on this one.

Glorious Hand Hewn Ash Shelf Mantel

Glorious Hand Hewn Ash Shelf Mantel

4″x7″x8′

This is a glorious piece of hand hewn ash in a very rare size. Nice crisp corners and profession hewn marks. Who ever did this piece was talented but ash is easier to hewn or split than most other woods. Nice color and grain. Pretty much everything you want. We have only reclaimed this size once before and only one piece and not as nice. We have a batch of these rare hand hewn shelf sizes and will probably never see this size again. It is very common in a sawn material but not so much in a hewn style. And 4×7 is exactly what most are looking for.

3.5″x6.5″x5′

Okay! this is a very rare size highly sought after and we never get these out of barns but we did get these very rare oak joists out of a house around the corner from us. Nobody hand hews all 4 sides of a house joists unless these are particularly old and someone took some serious pride in their construction job. Either way we were so delighted to pick these up with all the requests for this size in a hand hewn piece versus circle sawn which is much more common in both houses and barns. Hope you can appreciate these as much as we do. Doubt we will ever get something like these again. This one has a live corner and a bark corner on both bottom corners. We have pics of all and you could hang it the way you prefer.

We do charge $20 to cut down but you can surely keep the drop. However if shipping it may not be worth the extra cost these days. This is a beautiful piece that speaks for itself. The 7×7 size is very desirable and the pockets keep the price more reasonable for how nice this is. We have quite a few more of these gems coming in through the winter so give us a call if this one is marked sold but more than likely we will just change the item number and state the picture is not the exact one.

Notched Hand Hewn White Oak Mantel

Notched Hand Hewn White Oak Mantel

7″x7″x6’10”

Pretty excited to post two of these beautiful notched back white oak beams. It isn’t the notching that makes them beautiful but we thought folks could use them to cap a brick fireplace. At that the notch will probably have to be adjusted but what makes these nice is just how pretty the front side is on them. They are just gorgeous. There is a pocket that will hide against the wall.
The notch is about 3″x3″ deep along the WHOLE back bottom corner so this will only work to cap a brick or stone fireplace that stops at mantel height and has a ledge at least 3″.

Been getting a lot of requests for fatter oak pieces and we aim to please so here is a nice size piece. There is a mortise on the 9.5″ bottom side in picture but you could possible face that to the back if you are okay with the darker naily weathered side as the top. We do like the face we have pictured and the other 2 sides are similar and not as dark as the back side that the original old barn siding was nailed to.
