Rustic Fireplace Mantels Inspired by Nature - In the Style of the Arts

Live Edge and Natural Edge

Either of these terms are used to describe the Timbermantels style of mantel. It just references that all efforts to refine the mantel are tempered by maintaining what nature has done in creating the piece. Many of our pieces capture the natural/live edge feature. We are very willing and in fact pride ourselves in responding to our clients wishes [...]

Even Chickadees Love Yew

My friend Larry has built some extremely creative "hobbit bungalows" for our chickadee friends. He takes our Yew and artfully sands and shapes the pieces so as to build these. No two are alike but all have the same complete attention of the builder. There are more pictures in our website gallery under "sculptures,tables and [...]

Millwork on a Mantel Log

This is one of the most beautiful Pacific Yew logs we have ever milled. No, really, it is beautiful even though it may look ugly! Within this log are some stunning pieces. The live or natural edge will have an abundance of character. One of the enjoyments we have is watching this log as it [...]

Juniper log mantel with Juniper log corbels

This is a 6' Juniper log mantel that will be mounted on two 7-8" diameter juniper log corbels. This will be shipped to one of our customers next week. I like it because of its very unique character.
