Mantel Shelves


Our solid hardwood shelves are available in a wide range of styles, from the traditional to contemporary. Each is constructed with the same quality workmanship found in our full surround mantels, and features a generous 8" top depth from the wall for safe support of objects. Shelves can be custom-sized to any length and depth. Each shelf is shipped with its own fitted and adjustable wall mounting system for trouble-free installation against both wood framed or masonry walls.

Heritage

Traditional, warm, crisp lines suggest a relaxed elegance which goes well with a wide range of decor from early Colonial to Victorian to many of the softer contemporary styles. Truly classic in proportion and design.

Heritage II

Similar in design to the Heritage but featuring added edge molding and recessed top, giving height and prominence to the upper shelf. Goes well with bold decor. Great for mounting below eye-level.

Pristina

The graceful, elegant shaping of this model is a true eyecatcher, featuring added front edge molding to lend mass and height to the upper shelf portion.

Cranbrook

A contemporary design combining a massive vertical front edge and a long smooth bevel. The basic shape lends a bold simplicity, giving full expression to the natural beauty of wood.

Denmark

The sharp clean angles of this model complement bright modern settings. It's striking 45 degree mitered ends, sleek woody surface, and ever-so-slightly rounded edges beg to be touched. Nature provides the detailing. The spirit is uplifting. And talk about "functional" in today's changing times, the Denmark is reversible. Install it upside down for an exciting hoodlike effect. In this position a small lip surrounds the slightly recessed top providing both detailing and protection to objects on top.

Tudor

Warm, classic styling compliments a wide range of traditional, stately settings having perpindicular lines such as rectangular frame and panel walls. Especially attractive in medium and dark oak.

Aspen

Clean, distinct lines accent modern, contemporary decor. The smooth, level planes reveal the full glory of the wood, and create a sense of mass.

Craigmont

A classically modern mantel with crisp lines. Another truly classical design to fit any décor. Standard size 60x9.

Estonia

Recognizing Good Construction


The finest quality mantels are constructed of wide pieces of solid hardwoods selected for consistent color and grain patterns. Cheaper products are made of narrow pieces glued together, often having highly varied colors and grain patterns, making them prone to warping and splitting.

Look for "clear" lumber having few knots, unsanded machine marks, rough surfaces or other avoidable flaws of workmanship.

Moldings and trim pieces should be nailed in place with small inconspicuous brads, with tight-fitting smoothly sanded joints.

Finished mantels should show even staining, protected by a smooth, sealed surface, characteristic of fine furniture, without any open joints or unfilled nail holes.



Collinswood Designs Construction Characteristics


Collinswood Designs combines choice materials and dedicated craftsmanship to create a mantel that will satisfy for generations. Our success derives from attention to details...from initial design to construction, finishing, quality control and packaging.

Selected oaks, cherry and maple. No plywood or by-products are in our mantels.

Careful moisture testing and lumber selection to eliminate warping.

Prudent design and construction to assure tight-fitting joints while allowing for normal wood movement.

Fine detail sanding by hand.

Non-yellowing stains, solvents and sealers are used to avoid discoloration due to ultraviolet light. The only color change will be the natural mellowing of real wood.

Only deep-penetrating oil stains - no sprayed-on surface colors.

Multiple coats of moisture resistant lacquers properly seal the wood. Each layer of finish is hand-rubbed to a smooth soft sheen, enhancing the natural beauty of the wood. You may also choose to order your mantel without finish, or custom stain matching is available.



Each Collinswood Mantel is the result of human accomplishment aided by machine. Each employee deserves both the credit and the responsibility for a job well-done. That's why each mantel proudly bears the signature of the principle assembler.
