Knotty Alder Fireplace Beam Mantel, Rustic, Distressed, Antique Bolts, Salvaged, Timber

The shelf featured here is a brand new "Durango" from our Mountain Elegance line. Knotty Alder is definitely my favorite material to work with, then add distressing, glazing and thick corbels with salvaged antique bolts and what you end up with a look that is very rustic and chic. The color and glazing makes for a medium brown hue rich with walnut tones. The bolts are 1" wide and the washers are 3" wide. Both are blackened steel with raised / forged lettering. All are hand finished and distressed one at a time, making each shelf, set of corbels and the end look very unique.

The Durango includes everything just as you see it...shelf, corbels with bolts, completely finished and with all mounting hardware. Also included are easy to follow instructions to get your shelf up in no time!

We've been designing and manufacturing mantels and shelves for the past 62 years. In that time, (spanning 4 generations my son is now learning the trade) I can honestly say I've had the time of my life. I absolutely love the designing and creating aspect of what we do. My son however is more hands on and has talent you can see....see photos!

Shelf Measurements 8" deep, 8" tall, 66" long
Corbel Measurements 6.5 deep, 5.5" wide, 10.5" tall
Blackened Steel Bolts 1" head, 3" wide raised detail washers.

Other lengths (42, 4,8 54, 60, 66, 72), other stain colors, and no distressing options are also available please contact us if you have questions..

100% satisfaction guaranteed. Your shelf will arrive safely and on time.or your money will be refunded.

    Our mantle looks great, even better in person! It has a ton of character and something we will be proud to hang in our home (pic to follow). The turnaround was very quick and it was an all around great experience. Thank you John for this beautiful piece!

    Received my mantel yesterday and it is perfect! It was a custom size that I needed so I contacted John I told him what size I was needing and I couldn’t be happier with the finish product!
