Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Unfinished oak mantel This oak mantel is sanded and is pretty close to being ready to put a finish on it when it comes out of the box. The craftsmanship of the mantel itself is pretty good, the top sounds sort of hollow when you set something on it due to the thickness, but it isn't a big deal. They supply what is approximately a 2x4 cut in half lengthwise into a strip to serve as the mount that you attach to the wall, and then you attach the mantel down onto the top of the strip. This works decently though I may do something a little different to permanently install it, as their instructions suggest the strip and the mantel be attached with liquid nails, which is of course going to destroy it if you want to be able to remove it. I have cabling I want to be able to access on rare occasion behind it, so I am probbly going to figure out a way to use some angle steel to be able to have it hang more securely without needing to use glue/adhesive as well as the screws. It was really well packed within two cardboard layers and padding, however the first one I received had wood damage and needed to be replaced by the factory, which was done promptly. You will want to inspect it before you mount it. The tag inside the mantel says that it is Made in Vietnam for Foster Mantels. December 7, 2012

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Will need to do some sanding by hand. I received this in a rather large over-box that protected the shelf pretty well. overall the package was done very well. The shelf out of the box needs to be finished by hand with a very light grit sandpaper to get a nice smooth finish. I tested some stains on the inside of the mantel since it was hollow. Red Oak looked the best as this is already made of oak. This product mounts to the wall with an internal 2x2 that you mount horizontally on the wall. It with no mounting hardware at all. I used 2-1/2" lag screws. i would suggest getting a stud finder so you can anchor the 2x2 to the framing in the wall. Drill pilot holes so you do not split the 2x2. Also there is no hardware to mount the shelf to the internal 2x2. i used small wood screws for this. I also drilled pilot holes with a little bit of an offset to flush mount the screws .to not split the wood 2x2 or the oak during installation. Another option would be to use a wood glue or liquid nail to secure the mantel to the 2x2, but it will make removing the shelf at a later point difficult. November 2, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by very well made product The oak mantels were very well made and looked very good after staining and sealing. I mounted the mantels on oak backer boards, then to stone fireplace. October 28, 2014
