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. 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 single layer with handmade rivets applied.
We price most of our mantels at $100 to $115 per linear foot. Any ironwork is in addition to the wood mantel price. These single layer straps run $285 for an installed pair. Note, the one image has a square crafted with an iron ring. Iron rings on a metal plate run $75 each.

All I can say is wow! The mantle is absolutely amazing and went well beyond my expectations. I would highly recommend anyone considering the purchase of a custom mantle to go with Kevin.
