72 in. x 6 in. Midgard Wood Cap-Shelf Mantel

Product Overview

In our opinion, true beauty on this planet is born from imperfect beginnings. The wear of wood that's spent time on the water, the distressing from a commonly used piece of furniture, or even a well-placed scar can all be beautiful and intriguing because of imperfection. Stories paint the best pictures because they represent life being lived. The Midgard is our representation of life, both the good and bad characteristics that shape us. This product is hand-distressed, stained, and glazed to show every detail.
  • 10 in. depth to allow plenty of space for displaying your items
  • Pre-stained and sealed with a protective clear coat
  • Easy installation with our hollow wood mantel design
  • Constructed of knotty alder wood
  • Mantel is hung using a cleat
  • 50 lbs of weight capacity

I ordered this shelf to use as a mantle over our fireplace. The color is lighter than it appears online. Stain application and glaze is not very thorough. In my case, this will be an advantage, since I will now want to sand and re-stain to get the darker color I was hoping for. Love the 10” depth, which will allow plenty of room for everyday and holiday displays. Method of installation appears to be quite easy, however, we have not yet mounted the shelf, due to work that I will need to do first.

The Bjorn Woodworks 72 in. x 10 in. Midgard Wood Cap-Shelf Mantel, Distressed/ Stained/ and Glazed pre-assembled, real wood mantle is a great idea. It is ready to install using an angular board you attach to your wall at secure points, like the wall studs. Once attached, you simply lower the mantle onto the bracket. The offsetting cuts in the wood provide a quick and secure way to hang the wood mantle. Being real wood the mantle weighs around 11 pounds; it could be substantially heavier but it is a hollow box, a clever idea. The wooden mounting bracket is cut from one piece of wood, with one part already screwed to the mantle box. My wall bracket was separated at a knot into two pieces. I was faced with cutting a new wall board, returning everything, or going with another mounting system. I just ripped a 2x4 at a 45* on my table saw to make a new wall board. As to the mantle's look, the wood is stained but it is not sealed with any type of finish, like varnish. That may or may not be an issue to you; it is exactly what is stated in the product description. People put things on mantles, but I could not find a load limit. With a small shelf, the load is going to be small; however, with a large mantle like this one, it might get quite a bit put onto it, so knowing its maximum load would be helpful. Overall, the mantle looks great, even more so after I varnished it.

Nice finish and unique look. Mounting is very easy, just drill the supplied board to wall and set mantle on, that’s it. The hardest part was drilling holes for the anchors. Can be mounted to studs with screws or concrete and brick with anchors. I applied butcher block sealer on the top to give it a smoother surface. Instructions were dry straight forward, not much to it.

I put that I would recommend this product but only for a specific type of decor. I would recommend you see it in person before purchasing. The "Bjorn Woodworks 72 in. x 10 in. Midgard Wood Cap-Shelf Mantel, Distressed/ Stained/ and Glazed" is nice enough I did not notice the "glaze" and actually received a splinter from handling it. It is not super heavy and appears easy enough to install. I have not done so yet, I am trying to decide where to put it.

This mantel is absolutely stunning. I added this above my fireplace and it completes the space so well. The distressed wood adds so much character and warmth to the room. The interior is hollow so the mantel itself is extremely lightweight. Installation is a breeze, you essentially install a wood mounting bracket to the wall and clip the mantel over the top. The bracket is wedge shaped which allows the mantel to securely hung from the wall.

(What's this)
I have a 1700's house with exposed hand hewn timbers. I thought this would mimic my ceilings. I was expecting a beam. It is actually made of 3/4" boards. It is like a window box, but turned on its side. It looked odd in the rooms with exposed beams. So, I installed it in my bathroom, which the previous owner had sheetrocked. I was able to hang it, but it is not very secure. My studs are 4x4's every 4'. I was only able to get one mounting screw into a stud. If like a painting, the weigh pulled down, there would be no problem, but the weight of the mantle pulls forward; kind of like a hammer pulling a nail. I am going to have to find another mounting method, or never put anything on top of it. On the positive ... It is beautiful. They have done a great job with the patina. Also, I love the smell. Every time I walk by it, it makes me smile. The benefit of it being hollow; it is much lighter, and I was able to install it by myself. On the negative ... It came with 4 mounting screws, but did not have the securing screw. They should have pre-drilled the securing screw hole, sunk it and provided a wood plug. A finishing touch, I would expect from a premium product. For now, my screw sticks out. At some point I will use a countersink bit to get it flush. Also, the mounting screws should be Round Head Wood Screws on such a small wood cleat. Mine was cracked on the top and slightly buckled in same corner. Not sure if it was from shipping or the wood shrunk after assembly. Clearly it happened after gluing and finishing (see pics). Finally, the face board is not one board (like it appears on the website), but two (see pic). My hoped illusion of it being a solid beam mantle is destroyed by this. It clearly makes this look like a box.

We were looking for ways to update the look of our fireplace but didn't want to go with something too "trendy" that would be out of style by this time next year. This mantel was heavier and sturdier than I expected but that's definitely a great thing! The color was spot on and the texture of the wood is perfect. Not too rustic (see trendy) and it looks like I could paint it if I chose to.

I really like the Bjorn Woodworks mantel for it's quality and beautiful appearance. I can't wait to get it installed! It's 72 inches long x 10 inches wide x 6 inches high. The mantel is beautiful distressed wood that is stained and glazed. The joints are very well put together and the mounting cleat makes for an easy installation. The installation manual is very simple and complete, with easy to follow instructions and illustrations. I definitely recommend the Bjorn Woodworks mantel for its fine quality and rustic style.

Excellent Shelf Mantel! If you can locate studs in the wall and screw 3 screws into the wall you can install this shelf! Extremely simple install, with excellent word and picture instructions. The shelf/mantel simply slides onto the bracket and your finished. Install took less than 5 minutes. You will need a level, drill and drill bit, but its super easy to install. The quality of the product is excellent. Well built and very strong. We don't have a fireplace, but instead installed it in our dining room and it looks amazing. The depth of the shelf makes it great to put almost anything on it, and the strength of the unit means it can handle multiple items. The rustic look of the wood makes the shelf/mantel look like one large beam, even though its several pieces of lighter weight wood. Excellent look for our dinning room. We get a ton of compliments on it from everyone who comes to our house!

Wood Cap Shelf Mantel by Bjorn Woodworks. This is a neat idea and allows to to either create a mantel using the provided hidden mounting bracket or go over an existing mantel. I have an existing mantel that is drywalled over and will be installing over the drywall. The wood quality is good with a realistic distressed look and a nice finish. I need to mod it a bit, but I am excited for this project.
