We are quite pleased to be sending a Western Red Cedar mantel to our friends in Arizona. It is a 6' x 12'' x 6'' thick old growth that has been finished with a satin lacquer. The mantel has been wrapped with 3 layers of 1'' bubble wrap and then placed in a double [...]
This is a gorgeous, full of character Juniper 1/2 round mantel. It measures 6' long x 12'' deep and approx. 6'' thick. One picture shows when it has been sanded only and the other is when the finish has been applied. Quite a difference!!
When we show you a Yew log or mantel it is often times hard to see the beauty but it will be there once we have cut, sanded and finished. These pictures show the same piece as it moves towards being a (finished) natural piece of art.
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 [...]
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 [...]
I have always wanted a bar because I have this "cheers" fantasy but realize it would be very different from my imagination. But never the less I have collected many items for my bar and up until the mantel business I never had a place for the "bar". So I decided to surround myself with the [...]
These are old growth Douglas Fir planks that measure approximately 12' x 18-20'' x 4'' thick. They will finish in the lighter tones and make wonderful counter/bartops. In the one picture is my "old salty dog" friend since being kids, Reidar Solberg. He and his wife Linda and their son Lange are important, good friends. [...]
Every once in awhile we surprise ourselves with the art that nature has provided for us. This is a recent project that has the leading position on "character wood" or "natural edge" mantel pieces. It is a Pacific Yew piece that is much darker than most. It appears that the sapwood has disappeared but I think [...]
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 [...]
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. Different from the Pacific Yew in that the "movement" is pronounced but yet somewhat controlled with some symmetry. [...]
