Oak beams traditionally are used for structural purposes in old houses, however, log burners seem to be the fashion in many homes rather than cast or open fireplaces. Oak mantel pieces are used as lintels above log burners creating a room feature that is aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

At Jim wise reclamation, we offer services of cleaning old pieces of oak to transform them into a readymade mantle. We have a custom made showroom with variety of mantels all full of character, that have been treated for infestation and waxed ready to pick up and fit straight into your fireplace.
