Our cedar mantels begin as Rough mill cut timbers that are suared up to ensure a true squared timber. The Rough finish is a rustic type furry finish that may have some splitting in larger timbers. The Smooth finish product comes with a sanded surface with all knots, cracks and checks filled and smoothed ready for paint or stain. Our mantle edges are rounded off and hand sanded to a fine finish. Fireplace mantel or mantelpiece, also known as a chimneypiece, originated in medieval times as a hood that projected over a grate to catch the smoke. The term has evolved to include the decorative framework around the fireplace, and can include elaborate designs extending to the ceiling.
