    Would it be possible to cut this down to 36 inches?
    1 Answers
    While not recommended, this would certainly be possible by cutting the mantel in the center using a circular saw and fine-toothed plywood blade to shorten the length. This would likely require sanding and finishing/painting to conceal any seams as the unfinished option would leave this alteration quite noticeable as the wood grain would no longer be uniform.

    I would like to purchase this mantel, but I want to make sure it will mount over the brick I currently have on my fireplace. If you look at the picture attached, you can see there is currently a brick mantel that was built with the fireplace. I am wanting to purchase the 48 in mantel. Can you tell me if the open back of this mantel will fit over the 6 1/2 in width and 6 1/2 in height and 35 in length of what I currently have?
    2 Answers
    That's a great idea for install. I checked the interior dimensions on this mantel and while the width and depth are good on your dimensions. The height will not work. The interior height of this mantel is only about 3" tall. For that matter, the overall height is only 5 1/2".

    Can I have a shelf or mantel above a wall mount electric fireplace; the heater part is on the top of the fireplace?
    1 Answers
    In all likelihood, you should be able to install a mantel shelf above an electric fireplace, so long as the fan vents are front-facing and not pointed up towards the mantel. To confirm, we will need to know the make and model number of the electric fireplace in question, so that we may locate the clearance requirements.

    How do I tighten this Pearl Mantels 412 Shenandoah fireplace mantle against the wall? It's hanging down slightly.
    4 Answers
    Ensuring the mantel cleat is tight against the wall should serve to draw the mantel closer. This may prove difficult if the wall is covered with a brick or stone facade however. In a case such as that, some slight modification to the wall facade may be necessary.

    I predrilled three angled holes into the cleat that are 3 inches long. I then screwed them into the back topside of the mantel which is angled into the cleat.

    If your wall is flat and you attached the board against the wall correctly, angled side up, try pressing the shelf down next to the wall with a rubber mallet. With the angle of the wall mount piece, it should become snug against the wall if it is sitting properly against the wall.

    The corbels are completely optional. The mantel is perfectly secure when mounted strictly on the included wall cleat.
    Kevin E.
    on August 4, 2015
    It will be a bit more secure with the corbels, but I did not install them in my instance. The bracket that holds the mantel is very sturdy and runs almost the entire length. I would go without them as long as you are not planning to put a lot of weight on the mantel.

    You certainly don't need to use the corbels. We have purchased two of these at over 5 ft each and have used one with corbels and one without. All of the load baring is taken by the internal (hidden) beam that anchors on the wall. The better you anchor the beam, the more it will bare. Hope this helps.

    While the mantel can be made secure without corbels, we think the corbels add increased security of the mantel. Our mantel and corbels were mounted and the rock facing was added to the wall that they were mounted on. Now, due to the lock in by the rock facing, the mantel is really secure.

    No, you don't need the corbels. I didn't use them either. The strength comes from the cleat attached to the mounting surface.
    Dan
    on August 4, 2015
    from AZ
    We added the corbels but only because the rock does not come all the way up to the mantel. The mantel itself was attached to the fireplace using hardware used for cement since our fireplace was solid brick. It is pretty secure without the corbels. So no, you do not need them to make it more secure. BTW - We absolutely LOVE the mantel! It is gorgeous!

    You do not need to use the corbels. It is plenty sturdy without them, although it is a little more sturdy with them. We installed it first without, but decided we like the look with them better, and so reinstalled it with the corbels.

    Corbels are making it more secure for sure, but we decided not use corbels since, without corbels, it goes better with the style of our house. We have about 10 lb of decoration on the shelf and It works ok, feels secure.

    Does the 72" version of this Pearl Mantel 412 Shenandoah fireplace mantel also weigh 33 pounds? We are putting stone up for a surround and was curious as to how to mount the mantel. Would we need a cleat? Is there a mounting board that the mantel fastens to and if so, how?
    12 Answers
    This shelf comes with a wall cleat for installation. You would mount the cleat onto your stone wall and the shelf would then hang from it. If the stones are uneven, you will likely need to use shims when installing it so that it will project evenly from the stone. The 72" version weighs approximately 38 pounds.
    Will M.
    on June 26, 2015
    We had the 60" at 33 lbs - So I would imagine the 72" would be closer to approx 40 lbs (33/60 = .55 lbs per inch, then .55 * 72 = 39.6 lbs). The mantel comes with a wedge strip which you mount directly to the wall. Using a stud finder, screw this wedge piece onto the wall at the height you want to hang the mantel. The Wedge hanging strip is designed to take the weight of the mantel and some, and as long as you screw it into the studs you'll be fine. As added security, I ran a bead of wood glue when I set the mantel piece on top of the hanging board. The result is a rock solid mantel piece and a bit more permanent than just setting the mantel on the hanging board (this is really up to you if you want to do this). As for accommodating the stone we were putting up: I choose to hang the mantel hanging board first at a height that would ultimately interfere with my stone spacing least. Even with planning ahead, I had to file the stones where they were rough and stuck out and cut the stone to accommodate the corbels to make sure I had a tight fit. Do a dry fit with the stone and mantel on the bottom side and then hit it with the glue once you get the fit right. Once you take care of the lower side, you're home free. The process including: handing the mantel, measuring for my cuts, cutting, filing, and then mortaring my stone up there around the mantel took about three and a half hours, but i'm a perfectionist... your mileage may vary. I've attached a diagram of the install procedure and a picture of my end result. Best of Luck!

    We just bought and installed this same mantle in our new home a few months ago. To mount this product, it has a mounting receiver which you screw into the studs of your FP chase (I installed the durock substrate first). This receiver allows you then to simply glue (just used wood glue) and hang the mantle in place. that's it, very easy. We then installed our stone veneer around the mantle. Turned out great.
    Scott
    on June 26, 2015
    from St. Louis, MO
    Yes, there is about a 1" furring strip that is the lenght of the mantle for mounting. It has a wedge-shaped cut on one side that matches the inside of the mantle for mounting. The inside of the mantle piece is hollow, so you probably would not need cleats unless you plan to place alot of weight on the mantle after install. It is real easy to install.

    I love my 72" Shenandoah Rustic Cherry Mantle. I did not use the corbels because I wanted a clean look. There is a cleat that comes with it and that's what I attached to my wall with just 2 screws in drywall using EZ anchors...with a little longer screws because you got to got thru the 3/4 " cleat before you get to the wall where the anchor is. You will need to pre drill holes in the cleat for the screws to go thru. The cleat does not have holes in it for mounting...wish it had. Then you just hang the mantle on the cleat.

    I did not weigh the 72" mantel that I recently installed, but I would estimate that it does not weigh more than ~40 pounds (it is not a solid piece of wood, but rather a hollow box with glued joints). It comes with a mounting board that attaches to the fireplace or wall with anchor or masonry hardware (supplied by the customer). The top edge of the mounting board is mitred at 45 degrees, forming a lip which mates up with a matching angled edge on the back of the mantel. The included corbels attach to the bottom of the mantel if desired, but bear none of the load. When installed, the mantel fits snugly against the fireplace and seems quite secure.

    I have the 48" version. It comes with an approximately 40" hardwood mounting board that has a 45 degree edge. It marries with a board on the mantel that has the opposite angle. You mount the board on the wall then put the mantel on it. I surrounded the mantel with my stone facing to secure it from coming off.

    from Valencia
    The mantel looks good and solid but is in fact hollow and light weight, making it easy to mount. It could not have been easier to attach the single wedge shaped length of wood to the wall. The whole shelf then sits onto this wedge with an oppositely shaped inner price of wood, making almost the whole length of the shelf supported and solid.

    It's a very easy mount. Just fasten the mounting board to your wall then slip the mantel down over it. The mantel can be removed or adjusted side to side. The mantel is a very light constructed box that appears to be a solid block of wood.

    There is a mounting board that comes with the mantel. However, you need to purchase your own hardware to hang it. It might be that weight but when we lifted it in place, it seems lighter. We mounted it to a drywall so not sure if cleats are needed in your case. We used anchors and screws.

    We purchased the 72" and 48" mantels and mitered one side to create an L shaped mantel. I did not do the work myself but my brother who installed it said it was very easy and all board, cleat etc was included. We did not use the corbels and placed above some stone surround. Not sure of weight (it seemed light) but it looks great and very sturdy. It really appears like a solid piece of wood.

    As the width between the corbels will be 42" for the 72" mantel shelf, these will not fit around the outside of your opening. The mantel is shipped with the corbels not attached, so conceivably you could install only the shelf if you prefer.

    The unfinished mantel is ready for stain as soon as you open the box. But it is always a good idea to lightly sand first. Just a quick sanding...but it's up to you!

    Yes it does. I chose to stain the mantel myself, in a cabernet color, and it is stunning, particularly with the distressed areas. The hollow format of the mantel allowed me to mount an outlet inside and run power to it. Fantastic product.

    What is the needed clearance between a vent-less propane fireplace and this mantel?
    1 Answers
    The necessary clearance will depend entirely on the manufacturer of the fireplace or ventless log set. Each manufacturer will provide a clearance chart withing the owner's manual that will specify the allowable amount of mantel projection and the space required between the underside of the mantel and the fireplace opening. If you no longer have the literature for your fireplace, but do know the manufacturer name and model number, I will be happy to look into the requirements.

    I am thinking of this to add to a stone fireplace. The stones are not at all even. Will this still be able to be mounted using the Cleats I see mentioned in other answers?
    1 Answers
    In order to mount the cleat for this shelf, you will likely need to use shims when installing it so that it will project evenly from the stone. When the shelf is mounted on the cleat, there will likely be some space between the shelf and the wall, but this is to be expected with uneven surfaces. The best thing that can be done is to test fit the cleat with different shims to ensure as close of a fit as possible.

    My Gorgeous Mantle
    I couldn't have been happier with my mantle purchase. The price was right, it came super fast, and it is absolutely beautiful. Wish I could have also purchased extra corbels for my matching bar, but it couldn't be done. The company did go out of their way to try and get them for me, but the people who make them wouldn't do it. They checked for me and got me an answer very quickly, which I really appreciated. This is a great company.

    Lightweight and easy to install
    While it looks big and substantial, it's actually fairly lightweight. It was easy to stain and install, though there is a flaw that the stain would not cover. The flaw is not part of the planned distress but rather it looks like a plastic type of filler was used on a nail head, also on the end joins and the stain will not cover, as the stain can not be absorbed. Otherwise, I'd have given it 5 stars.

    I found the centerpiece to my home.
    First, let me start by saying I have been searching for the perfect mantel for months. I recently bought a new house and my fireplace needed a mantel. What I love about this store is that you get the option to either order it natural or already finished. I went with natural. I had ordered a mantel from another store and it just didn't have the pizazz I was looking for. I sent it back and continued my search. I found this mantel and loved the looks of it. I placed my order and instantly received a message saying they were working on my piece. My mantel took no longer than 5 days to come in. Nervously, I opened the box, which was packed very well. Oh my and the surprise that laid within this beautiful packaging was pure amazing. The mantel is clearly made well. The instructions were easy to follow. It took me under a hour to get the whole thing up. I absolutely love it. I get compliments all the time. I stained mine to match my existing wood colors in the house. It's perfect and exactly what I was looking for. I will be using these nice folks again.

    beautiful mantle
    I bought the 60in mantle unfinished and found it stained easily, and looks great. The mounting was straightforward, and while it was a two person job in terms of one holding the mounting board to get it placed/leveled perfectly while the other person marks where the holes need to be drilled, etc, it gave us no trouble. It is hollow and attaches to a mounting board, some people may feel that is cheap, but I can't imagine trying to hang a solid mantle of that size, you'd need a crane :-) Also the "distressing" is quite obviously done by a machine, and up close looks too uniform, but once stained and hung is barely noticeable. It looks fantastic on our two story fireplace! efireplacestore also did the 110% price match for me from an online competitor, and it was very quick and easy.

    Unfinished mantle
    Very easy to install and I like the distressed look. We had trouble staining the unfinished mantle a consistent dark oak color. There are spots that came out shiny, while the majority of it had a nice matte finish. We still can't figure out why random spots were shiny. There are also odd streaks that wouldn't hold any stain, so some parts look like zebra stripes…even after 3 coats of stain. Some knots in the wood turned out orange/red color, while others absorbed the stain color perfectly. We used a good quality of stain so I have no clue why the wood was not cooperating. Thankfully, the zebra stripes and red knots are not on the front of the mantle, so one has to look on top of the mantle, or the sides, to see these staining defects. It was very easy for me to add more distressing to the wood.
    ProsVERY easy to install. Manufacturer distressing looks nice…..easy to add more cuts/age spots. Light weight
    ConsWood was not consistent with staining: parts wouldn't hold stain, random shiny areas after staining and some knots turned out red/orange.

    Finished mantel looks great
    The amount of distressing is perfect (not too much, not too little). The staining wasn't as easy as I'd hoped. Given that it is made of pine, it may have been better if I had used a pre-stain to help the stain be more uniform and apply smoother. The stain ended up being rather uneven in places and the wood seemed to soak it up quickly. I used 3 coats of Early American stain and a little dark walnut to make the lighter parts darker to get a more uniform color. I then covered with two coats of clear satin poly. Even though the staining took a little longer than I'd hoped and was a bit more involved than anticipated, I love the finished product. It looks like an old beam of barnwood which is what I was going for. I had it installed so can't comment on ease of installation. I am a little unsure how much weight it can handle. The mantel did come with a small chunk missing from the bottom corner. As it is on the bottom, rear corner, it's not a problem.
    ProsGreat value. Perfect amount of distressing.
    ConsStaining wasn't as easy as hoped. May benefit from using a pre-stain.

    Better than expected
    I was hesitant to order this mantle instead of getting a real solid wood mantle custom made, but I couldn't be happier with our decision. It doesn't have that cheesey, artificially-distressed look to it. It is very well made and the stain was exactly what I wanted. If you examine it it's obviously not a reclaimed beam from some century-old farm but once it is mounted it has that same feel.

    Unbelievable Value
    My wife and I purchased the Cherry Distressed for our new home and it is amazing. Looks like it is worth 3 times the cost. Sturdy as well. We have many decorations that sit on the top. Would definitely buy again!
    ProsSturdy, even staining. Super easy install. Good shipping.
    ConsNone so far.

    It has a distressed look? More like careless construction!
    So, I read many mixed reviews and several said that it was scratched and dented and not made well. I assumed that meant that they didn't see that the description said "Distressed" and figured they missed that. Wrong! I am surprised at how much I paid for this for the shoddy craftsmanship in construction. I could have made something of better quality myself. The distressed edges, like a beveled edge in places, was hastily done and many tool marks were left. The distressed look seemed a bit to intentional and not random, several parallel rows of dents. Also there was a hot pink circle on the side, that when sanded off turned white, like they used a piece of patch wood for a hole in the wood that didn't match up (see pic). The edges are not that great; they changed the direction of the grain on the ends so this makes the corners look unnatural. Also, the corbels have horribly mismatched grain so they are totally unusable (not a big factor for me as I was not going to use them anyway). I purchased the unfinished one so I'm not sure how the finished ones come in appearance. I had to sand starting at 60 grit to get rid of all of those tool marks and make the "distressed" features look more natural. I put a nice stain on it and several coats of poly and now it does look great. Interestingly enough, that spot of filler wood that was white is now pearlescent, like mother of pearl (won't take a stain). Sticks out big time, but it is kind of cool. I haven't finished my project yet, but hanging it will be straightforward enough. I will try to post more pictures when I'm done.
    ProsEasy to hang, fast shipping
    ConsPoor construction quality, need to put in a lot of work to make it look natural

    Only problem: no screws were included for corbels and inserted inserts were so cheap as to be useless. Fixed with nuts and bolts for a much better fix.

    Hesitant About Staining
    Despite the appearance of a repair to the front of the mantel giving it a distressed look, we hope we get good results by staining it a medium to dark stain. On the plus side, it’s easy to install.

    Beautiful But Won't Work for Us
    This was a disappointing purchase! The photo and descriptions were not detailed enough and so I purchased a mantel with an open back. Even though the mantel is beautiful, it will not work on my refaced fireplace as the open back is visible. Shipping this back will be a hassle!

    Fabricated - Not Solid Wood
    Despite its beauty, I almost threw this mantel through the roof when it was delivered. The photo was gorgeous but I was fooled. It is not a solid mantel, but only fabricated. But it does look great over my wood stove in my 100 year old house.

    Not a Good Purchase
    Our decorator advised us to purchase this unfinished mantel, but the wood didn’t take the stain properly. Also, the wood filler around the knots wouldn’t stain. We tried routing the wood filler out and filling the holes with putty and that didn’t work. Now we are looking for another mantel to purchase.

    Pessimist Turned Optimist
    I tend to be a pessimist in many ways, but in the case of these mantels offered by Pearl, I am a definite optimist. The design and quality that one is able to find in these shelves is simply astounding. In every single category, this mantel was precisely the item for which we were searching. Prior to purchasing this mantel, we had done a good deal of research to determine what we should buy, and even though we actually have not installed this item yet, we are totally confident that this will be the perfect addition to our home.

    Don't Buy Unfinished
    I thought this unfinished mantel was a solid piece of wood, but it’s a box made from pine boards. To get a distressed look, it took a lot of elbow grease to stain it properly. My advise – spend the extra money to have it stained.

    Unfinished and Inexpensive
    Though I was in search of an inexpensive unfinished mantel, this one came with a number of tiny scratches on the front and bottom which will require some sanding to eradicate. It was packaged well so it doesn’t appear to be damaged during shipping. And although it’s not built of a solid piece of pine, it is very well constructed.

    This was a hesitant online purchase, but I was pleased with the quality even though it’s not a solid piece of construction. The finish and quality matched the rest of my home.
