Reclaimed Mantel Douglas Fir

RECLAIMED DOUGLAS FIR MANTELS

 

Originating from residential structures and industrial buildings typically on the West Coast dating back to the early 1900’s, reclaimed Douglas fir fireplace mantels are available in a wide range of sizes from 4”x4” up to 12”x16” and lengths up to 8’. Longer lengths are not a problem at an additional cost. The original color is a rich, reddish brown patina with the original texture containing either a circular sawn, band sawn, or old surfaced appearance which we often sand or grind to create a timeworn appearance or distress the beams for a hand hewn appearance. We are also able to mill the beams to exact sizes and perfectly straight by sawing the original faces off revealing raw wood. For fireplace mantels, we detail sand all exposed sides and cut one side flat for installation against a wall or ceiling. Mantel ends are cut square to the requested length and polished. Matching corbels in a variety of sizes and shapes are available upon request as well.

SANDED DOUGLAS FIR MANTEL

Sanded Douglas fir mantels start with an “As Is” brown or gray timber which is then cut to length and lightly sanded reducing the splinters but retaining the original golden brown patina characteristic of aged Douglas fir. The back edge is also cut flat and straight on our bandsaw to help facilitate installation. The surface will have some degree of character marks which result from the nails and bolts we remove and checking resulting from air drying. Custom corbels can be cut to go along with the mantel as well. If you would like to do the labor yourself, you can place an appointment to select the timber from the yard.

GROUND DOUGLAS FIR MANTEL

To produce a slightly smoother appearance than our “Sanded Douglas Fir Mantel”, we use a series of sanding machines to produce a “ground finish”. We grind and sand the surface removing some of the original texture and patina and round the edges slightly. Custom corbels can be cut to go along with the mantel as well. If you would like to do the labor yourself, you can place an appointment to select the timber from the yard.

HAND HEWN DOUGLAS FIR MANTEL

Hand hewn Douglas fir mantels are one of the most popular fireplace mantels we offer. Using the same hand tools as the settlers, we can hand hew our reclaimed Douglas fir timbers. This removes all the patina and usually receives our wax finish applied to it after it’s installed to enhance its character. The material will retain its original character with nails holes and checking. Custom corbels can be cut to go along with the mantel as well.

RESAWN DOUGLAS FIR MANTEL

A fresh sawn appearance is created by putting the timber on our horizontal band saw and removing the original face on all four sides. This creates a perfectly straight piece at whatever exact dimensions you request. The appearance of the final product will be similar to that of re-sawn green timber although it will usually retain some degree of character marks and checking in the surface. The main difference being the dense grain of old growth wood and the stability of an old air dried beam. This material can be ordered with minimal character marks such as nail holes, bolts holes, checks, etc. The sawn appearance works well with contemporary architecture. Custom corbels can be cut to go along with the mantel as well.

SURFACED DOUGLAS FIR MANTEL

A surfaced appearance on our resawn reclaimed Douglas fir can be provided for a cleaner more refined look. The material can be ordered with more or less character such as nails holes, seasoning checks, etc. This material can also be ordered in whatever exact dimension you request. In an effort to preserve the knots, we typically use sanders to achieve this appearance instead of a planer. Custom corbels can be cut to go along with the mantel as well.
