“Ellis Inspired” Craftsmen Shelf Mantel.  Natural finish.

We are very proud of this Mendota Mantel “Signature Design” shelf mantel.  It was made from lumber milled from a huge black walnut tree cut in 2006.  The Craftsmen design is based on the work of Harvey Ellis, the famous Stickley Furniture designer of the early 1900’s. Our own Dan Guion came up with the design some 15 years ago.  We’ve sold dozens since. This one however, is the first made from air aged black walnut. Finished finely.

“Ice Blue” with matching corbels

I’m fortunate to live in a northern hardwood forest where I have access to extraordinary timber. A local logger/ miller friend of mine puts aside special unique logs that show the most beautiful unique figured character. Then he ages them for a year, mills them into mantel slabs instead of his usual boards, and passes them on – only to Mendota Mantels! I’m very lucky to know him! (Thank You John!)

This is one of those rare pieces. It’s a “Live edged” hard red maple. The live edge has been sculpted and sanded smooth.

I chose this color because it reminds me of the ice now melting on my shore line here on Lake Superior.

This is one of those rare pieces. It’s a “Live edged” hard red maple with matching corbels. I sculpted the live edge smooth as you can see.

It occurs to me that this would be a great soft piece for a bedroom….or….perhaps a very contemporary home. You might call it just a bit “avant-gardes”. Oh…pink..? Why not?

It’s a lovely color and why do mantels always have to be just wood grain anyways?

Burned Black Douglas Fir with Reclaimed Ball Corbels.

Looking to make a creative statement? This piece is that – very rare/ unique design. Three or four stages of burning, then brushing created the cool grain  texture. Reclaimed bowling balls were cut to create the corbels.  It’s one of our favorite pieces.

“Lattice” Carved Front. “Parrisch Blue” stain.

“Ellis Inspired” Craftsmen. Natural finish.

Another of our “Signature” designs inspired by the Craftsmen designer Harvey Ellis of the Stickley Company, circa 1910.  This one is made from a reclaimed timber we milled up.  Looks like pine, but also looks like spruce. Hard to tell. Either way, it has nice dimension and style.

Basic Funky Weathered Shelf.  Grey stain.

Looking for an inexpensive mantel that is authentically rustic? This one might work.  Frankly, we didn’t have to do a lot of work on it because it wanted to be left alone pretty much.  Priced right.  Nice big and deep top shelf for placing lots of “stuff” on. We know it’s old, but not sure of it’s original origin.

Rustic Two Piece Shelf with Original Hand Hewing.

Very nice example of how the barn builders in the 1800’s milled their timbers.  Original hand hewing has been sanded nicely so it’s smooth to the touch but still shows plenty of it’s character and history.  Stained dark brown.  Lovely piece if I say so myself.
