For several years Southwest Trading Post has produced a wide variety of log fireplace mantels, and has rapidly become the largest supplier in Central Texas. We constantly acquire large mesquite, pecan, hill country juniper, and red cedar logs to be cut on our sawmill in various shapes and sizes. Our cedar mantels have a "rustic log-cabin" feel to them, where our mesquite and pecan have an "elegant rustic" feel and go with most homes built in our area.
An alternative to our log style mantels are our antique pine or fir demintional beams which have natural distressed characteristics or can be distressed further by sand blasting or wire brush, which give the mantel a weathered texture. The typical size of mantels sold are between 5' - 6' in length and range from $400 to $700 each. Corbels are available for $150 to $250 a pair.
