Rustic suggests  the wood has a natural, rugged appeal. Typically, this means a live edge and “defects” such as small cracks, knots, and curly or burly character. However, most people feel that these “defects” only add to the appeal of the piece; giving it a unique look and adding to the character. If you desire a more contemporary appeal, look for a clean-cut, solid wood mantel. If you want a perfect, defect-free piece they are available but not common.

Feel free to contact us and inquire about your specific desires and specifications if you do not find exactly what you are looking for on our website.  We are more than happy to help you find your ideal fireplace mantel.

Curly, “Fiddle-Backed,” or “Tiger-Striped” Grain in Redwood Fireplace Mantels 

The curly grain patterns, often called “fiddle-backed,” or “tiger-striped,” found in our redwood fireplace mantels is a form of curl. Curl in redwoods is  formed by compression grain; when a tree grows on a slope of has a natural bend in the trunk. This bend causes compression in the grain on the inside of the tree, giving the wood the wavy grain pattern we call curl.
