Calculate the dimensions for a custom mantel yourself by following steps 1, 2 & 3 or,
click here to complete our Fireplace Dimension Worksheet and we will do the calculations for you!
Step 1. Gather Your Fireplace and Facing Measurements.
Choose either the Standard or Full Wall illustration that best resembles your existing fireplace and facing, then note measurements A-N. (Some answers might be 0.")
Step 2. Determine Mantel Size.
Wood mantels are sized using just 3 dimensions: the mantel opening width, opening height, and mantel return. To determine what dimensions you need, follow these basic guidelines:
Precise Mantel Opening Width
Equals Facing Width "B" less (minimum) 1"
Precise Mantel Opening Height
Equals Facing Height "F" less (minimum) 1/2"
Precise Mantel Return Depth
Equals Facing Thickness "I" plus (minim.) 1/2"
(Note: The mantel overlaps the outside edges of the facing. Make alterations to your facing prior to measuring.)Your mantel size may need to be altered due to the fireplace, wall, or hearth configuration. We will address this in the line drawing we send to you.
Step 3. Enter Measurements, Comments, Wood, Finish & Sizing Options.
Simply enter the A-N measurements you gathered in Step 1 in the fields below. If desired, enter a desired shelf height and desired inches of facing showing above and beside the firebox opening. Write a short note, if desired, choose a wood type and finish and the appropriate mantel opening width range, opening height range and return depth range. Enter the precise measurements for each, if you've calculated them. The price in the box at the bottom of the page changes as you make wood, finish and sizing selections.
Once you complete the checkout process, we will review your measurements and selections, and to insure a proper fit and customer satisfaction, you will receive a dimensioned line drawing of your custom mantel via email for your approval BEFORE your mantle is built and BEFORE your credit card is charged.

This mantle transformed the whole living room from something of a country look to the elegant formal look that i was hoping to achieve. I had it installed; the carpenter did a good job and said it was easy to do. He did have to extend the front surface (wall) of the fireplace b/c the mantle extended a bit beyond what we expected, but it was not difficult and it looks perfect. You can't ask for more than perfect!

The mantel arrived on Friday (the holiday last week added a few days to the delivery schedule). I installed it on Saturday and it looks great; the color is just right.
Thanks for the craftsmanship.
