Do you think liquid nails will hold this up?

Hi John, please do not use any adhesives as a primary method of attaching woodwork to any wall. Installation instructions are included with these mantels, and will describe how to properly attach them to most common wall types. A ledger board that is used to attach the mantel to the wall is included, but the hardware needed (screws, fasteners, etc.) are not included. If you're attaching the mantel to stone, bring, or similar surfaces, specific fasteners are required to do that. Drywall attachments require their own installation methods as well. Consult an Associate in the Hardware/Fasteners aisle for their recommendations for your particular wall surface. Thank you.

It is prestained. You would have to sand and refinish the color of your choice.

Is this solid wood that can be cut to any desired size?

Nope. It is hollow veneer.

Questionable Hardware Recommendations and Overpriced
Do yourself a few favors when you buy this, so you don't have to turn right around and go back to the store to get proper stuff to mount it like we did: 1) Get a *straight* 2" x 4" and cut it to 4.5 feet long, and throw out the 30" long, 2" x 2" trash mounting piece it comes with. 2) Then, if drilling into brick, get about five 3/16" x 3.25" Tapcons (and the corresponding Tapcon drill bit) so you can actually get a proper 1.75" anchoring into the brick, and place them evenly along the much longer 2" x 4" you had to buy to mount it properly. They recommend 2.5" long screws which is underspecified as they would only penetrate 1" into the brick. Keep in mind actual thickness of a 2" piece of wood is 1.5". They literally recommend a screw length that would result in more length of screw in the mounting wood (1.5") than in the brick (1"). Fail. Not safe. 3) Then, since you now have a proper 2" x 4" to mount the mantel to, skip the crummy little 1.5" finishing *nails* they recommend to actually mount the mantel. No, get yourself some proper 2.5" wood *screws* and again, screw the top, back edge of the mantel into the much longer, taller, much stronger 2" x 4" all the way along the back every 8-10". Short finishing nails, which barely have any head on them, is a terrible recommendation for the only hardware that actually holds the mantel to the mounting piece. Again, what were they thinking? 4) We did also use some heavy duty construction adhesive between the mantel and the mounting piece just for extra measure. Did not do this between the 2" x 4" and the brick wall as each Tapcon requires about 1500 lbs of force to pull out of the brick, so no need at all. We were also happy with how the mantel fit against the brick once mounted, so didn't bother with any messy/sloppy bead of silicone around the mantel once installed. Would've looked like crap along rough Chicago brick. 5) Personally, we also found the color of the mantel to be pretty red. Quick coat of stain to take the red out and it looked great. Overall, the mantel cuts themselves and the seams are all well done, nice and square, nice knots in the mantel, and nice grain pattern. But the recommended mounting hardware is underspecified if not borderline dangerous. They literally suggest using screws that penetrate less into the brick than into the mounting piece of wood, and short finishing nails with tiny heads to mount the actual mantel, and all of this on a 30" long 2" x 2" for a mantel double the length. Say it out loud, that just sounds dangerous and underspecified in every way. Be safe and use a longer, bigger 2" x 4" for mounting, and large enough, proper hardware to mount it safely. The mantel looks like a million bucks once it's done, but don't kid yourself - this thing is worth about $50 at most - I mean, it's largely particleboard. That said, we are happy with the final result and with our mounting solution, it feels very strong and safe.

Hi Puma1552, we do thank you for a well-written, informative review. You bring up several points that we will review about the installation process. All steps in the installation guide were tested and deemed safe for the 20lb load rating. The steps you took to install the mantel are, no doubt, able to withstand more downward force. We will review our installation instructions and make any necessary changes to them. Finally, there is no particle board in our mantels. The less-visible top and bottom of the mantel are engineered alder plywood, making it able to withstand the extreme temperature and humidity changes much better. The sides and face of the mantel are solid alder wood. No particle board is used in the construction of our mantels. Again, thank you for your review, and your pictures are wonderful. That mantel does look amazing! SureWood-LNL
