Fireplace Mantel With Iron Double Layer Straps

We can add metal straps to nearly all of our fireplace mantels. If you don't see a mantel that you like in this collection, we probably have another one that fits your desired style, color, and size.

All of these metal straps are hand hammered and custom fit to each mantel. We usually use 3/16ths inch metal to give the straps an appropriate bulk for the size of the mantel. Our straps have a well-crafted, but very authentic look that only comes from a real blacksmith swinging a hammer and using a coal-fired forge. We strive for our products to look true and real — not machined. This look wonderfully complements these old beams with the 100+ year old ax marks made from pioneers swinging broad axes. This is the real thing.

This particular variation is a double iron layer with handmade rivets applied.

We price most of our hewn mantels at $135/LF to $150/LF. Circle sawn mantels run $115/LF. Any ironwork is in addition to the wood mantel price.

These double layer straps run $725 for an installed pair.

Most items ship for $150 via FedEx Gnd. Some larger mantels need to ship LTL Truck Freight for $275 to $400.
