We offer a great selection of high quality Solid Wood Timber Fireplace Mantels made exclusively for MantelsDirect by New England Timber Works. They've been working with fine quality timber for over 30 years and are bringing that tradition and excellence to fireplace mantels. Their unique timber fireplace mantels are handcrafted in keeping with the tradition of timber framing. All of the joinery is mortise and tenon secured with oak pegs. With several wood types and finishes available you're sure to find the distinctive high quality mantel you've been looking for.
Timber Fireplace Mantels are constructed of solid greenwood, which is wood that has been recently harvested specifically for your mantel. It is then coated in a beautiful finish made of natural Linseed Oil, mineral spirits and an exterior-grade stain. For these reasons, your mantel may seem wet and have a distinct odor when you first uncrate it. Please note that this is expected as part of the normal "setting" process and should dissipate within a few days.

Each mantel and shelf design is available in four distinctive, solid wood types and comes pre-finished in your choice of a durable Cabot exterior stain.New England Timber Works Fireplace Mantels are available in custom sizes.
