Figured Maple   Natural Finish

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.

For those of you who know wood, you’ll understand how special this piece is.  For those of you who don’t know wood, just take a look, hopefully you’ll see how pretty, unusual, and unique it’s grain is.  Not your typical maple slab mantel.  If you want a rare one- of- a -kind mantel, this is it! On a scale of  figuring from 1 to 10, this piece is a 6!

“Maxfield Parrish light 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 with matching corbels. I sculpted and sanded the live edge smooth as you can see.

This piece is quite figured. (thanks again for that John!)

Color reminded me of a color used often by one of my favorite artists. Hope I did it justice. I love the crazy rare beautiful figuring in this piece.

Authentic Hardwood Beam with End Tenons and Antique Hardware.   No finish.

This is pretty much “AS-IS” timber.  We cleaned it up lots, sanded a bit, but kept it authentic because it didn’t want any more attention then that.  The hardware was added and was reclaimed from the Big Jo Flour Mill of Wabasha, MN. 1874.  This timber was circular sawn back in the day.  It has very cool worm holes and some nice character.

Chain Sawn Carved Shelf.  Burned and stained light / medium brown.

We commissioned a young local artisan from Northwoods Manufacturing at Hurley High School to do a piece for us…  Told him he was free to “do his thing”. Having grown up logging with his uncle, this is of course, what he came up with.  Chain saw art! Reminds us of rocks.  Unique. Different.  Very nice shelf dimension too.

“SHORELINE BEACH”

Living on the shore of Lake Superior, gives me inspiration to now and again to sculpt a mantel that reminds me of drift wood beams that regularly float in and rest on our beach.  That was my intention with this piece.  I inlaid a few pieces of found beach glass to add a little more interest.  It’s only 7″ deep so if you want to utilize the entire 7″ shelf top, simply add a two x board to the back, or “float mount” it our from your wall.  (see FAQ’s Installation)  It would be a nice mantel for a lake home!

RUSTIC OAK TIMBER  Natural finish

This piece has lots of reclaimed character.  I milled the top, back, and bottom square and smooth to show off it’s spectacular old grain, but left the front “natural” to show its reclaimed history.  Nice piece for just about any setting – in my opinion, even a modern one.  See FAQ’s / “Installation” for instructions on how best to mount it because it’s a bit heavy.
