These mantels are solid wood and designed to last hundreds of years. Every piece is uniquely hand carved and signed by Joe Dillett (NO PATTERNS). It takes many hours to create each design using the old world carving techniques.

Some are made from one piece, and some are glued from several pieces to make it solid.

All wood is seasoned to insure against cracking and warpage. Every piece is unique in structure and growth, and made from the highest quality material available. Slight checks and knots, if any, are orientated to show the best qualities of the wood.

The mantels on this page are no longer available, but Joe would like to design a unique and original one for you.

Please call (815)498-9290 during business hours if you have any questions.
