This is another mantel that was made from an antique barn beam that was ripped on all sides to yield a dimensionally perfect beam. Personally…I can’t see the sense in using a perfectly good barn beam to to this with…but I tend to do whatever my customers want. It pays the bills! So…here it is!
First we rant the beam through the mill to clean all sides. Then the beam is sanded, conditioned, stained and sealed with urethane. Then we install. Finally…the stone man does his bit.
