Tulip-Mantle - 1505-7-1-SLPMAN




Contact Rarefind to order

Natural edged Tulip Mantel with bark attached.  Presently air dry, dressed, flat, and straight of even thickness. Large dimension wood pieces such as this are capable of movement once in place as they settle and adjust to their new environment. In the case of a mantle, above a fire (heat source) it is best installed in a manner that allows it to move, some further shrinkage is likely. The wood needs to move as it adjusts to its new home. It is also advisable to install it in such a manner as to be easily removed if it requires further dressing to square up or flatten. Such movement and adjustment can be further mitigated with further drying and resawing prior to use. We are happy to provide advice and work with the customer and installer to see a successful installation.
