It is absolutely gorgeous!
“Our Mendota Mantel was delivered today. It is absolutely gorgeous! We are so pleased with it! Thank you VERY
Stephanie and Dustin Love – Houston, Texas
This is so much more…I can’t thank you guys enough.
“Thanks so much for your help and support. We think there is ‘magic’ and ‘spirituality’ to our new theater because of the ‘tipi sculpture’. With all the issues we had to overcome, as well as your sweat and blood, we all may have wondered at one time or another whether the timber frame would be worth it. I now firmly believe that all the effort is the reason the piece is so special. If it were easy, it would just be another piece of architecture. This is so much more…I can’t thank you guys enough.
Best wishes to everyone at Mendota Mantels / Old Growth Woods”

Thanks so much for taking the time to makesomething very special.
“We were in Vail skiing for x-mas so did not even know that the mantel was here but it is perfect, we just love
it! Thanks so much for taking the time to make something very special. I will send you a picture as
soon as the room is complete and the mantel is up.”

They were creative, hardworking, timely with their work, and great fun to work with.
“Mendota Mantels created two beautiful mantels out of White Oak for my timber frame home in Excelsior, MN. They also created three exceptionally beautiful White Oak Newell Posts for the main stairway that were hand carved. They were creative, hardworking, timely with their work, and great fun to work with. We are working with them again on another timber frame project, and hope to do many more”.

The color is so rich and the finish so brilliant.
“We were so impressed with the personalized attention we got to create the perfect mantel for our new home. It was made from
a beautiful piece of 600 year old yellow pine. The color is so rich and the finish so brilliant. It has so much history and
character, and is a great conversation piece in the center of our home.”
Tom and Chanda – Excelsior, Minnesota
high quality, custom mantels
“We are so pleased with the high quality, custom mantels that Mendota Mantels created for us. We were given the opportunity
to choose from unique and rare historical pieces of wood that have a “story.” We get lots of compliments from friends and family
on the beauty and the quality of the mantels. We enjoy telling the story of where they came from.”
