Mendota Mantels 1289

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 8!

Natural Finished “Art Nouveau” with stepped rounded 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 piece is my attempt at a classic basic art nouveau design. My first attempt honestly.

I love how it turned out. Hope you do to. It occurs to me that this piece could work well in any home on earth. Just my opinion. Traditional, contemporary, or modern.

Large Authentic Timber.  Stained brown.

This authentic timber has a very deep shelf for placing your art, photos, etc on top in every season.  If you decided to inlay it into stone, you’d still have a nice deep top. It’s an honest basic fairly clean old timber that’s been finished with five coats of finish to protect it for another 100 years or so?!  It’s big.

Very Rare Grain Etched with End Hardware.  Stained brown/ black.

It’s hard to know how just to describe this piece in words.  It is big. It is rare. It is unique. It is beautiful. It is well made. It is historic. Its a terrific conversation piece. The “etching” on it was caused from over a hundred years of grain from the mill flowing over it.  Both the ends have hardware to hang fireplace tools from that were reclaimed from the Big Jo Flour Mill in Wabasha, MN. circa 1874.  Our shop consensus is that it is the best piece we’ve made this year. It feels good to say out loud that this is a very special mantel for a very special setting. It has it all. Nothing else to say.

Magnificently Aged VERY RARE Rustic Mantel. Dark brown / black.

I’ve been working with reclaimed timbers since 1999 and THIS is the finest example of naturally aged beams I’ve ever seen.  If there was such a thing as a “Reclaimed Timber Museum”, this piece would be in it! I’ve been saving it for many years for myself, but my wife says “sell it!”  For anyone that values what nature can do over time, this piece is for you.  Wish I could take credit for it, but t’was Nature that made this piece.
