Mantel Shelves / Mantle Shelves / Chimney Pieces

Please note:

  1. The photos above and shown static below   have been scaled down for the web and cannot reveal the true beauty of the wood.
  2. Wood is a natural product each piece is unique
    - nobody else can own a mantel shelf exactly like yours.
  3. Transport costs are a major element in the price since these are large and heavy items; but local deliveries can be done free.
  4. Normally only the top and front flat surfaces are hand finished to a high standard, using 4 coats of Danish oil, with sanding down between each application.
