Rustic Fireplace Mantel Options
Rustic fireplace mantels are one of our best-selling product lines. It’s a sure thing here, every day, that someone is going to be working on fireplace mantels. It’s just one of the many things we do here at Redwood Burl Inc.
Some of our newest rustic fireplace mantel designs are shown below. These come with any of our custom finishes. We’ll post all of these on our new custom mantels page in the near future. Remember, we always finish our carved rustic mantels for free. This is because it is a part of the carving/shaping process. We also offer a few different stain options. We price these mantels based on length, thickness, and width.
Beginning with a Blank
We make most of our carved rustic fireplace mantels from what we call a blank. A blank is usually a nice squarely cut piece of old-growth California redwood. Blanks usually are without much in the way of natural character. They do, however, have spectacularly close tight grain. It is during the shaping process that we give it some curves and lines that actually mimic what you will find in nature.
