Knotty Alder

  • Beam and Brace

    Beam and Brace Fireplace Mantel Iguana Art & Design

    The mantel featured here is a brand new Beam and Brace design. Inspired by the Rocky Mountains and in the tradition of rustic beauty, we developed the Beam and Brace mantel to work with a cabin home and to have the feel of the ski resort just like the resorts that are just minutes away from our shop. Beam and Brace is made with Knotty Alder, one of my favorite materials to work with. Then we add distressing, glazing, and thick corner braces. Giving the mantel a look that is very rustic and chic. The color and glazing give this mantel a medium brown hue, rich with walnut tones. All are hand finished and distressed one at a time making each mantel very unique.

  • Vail

    The shelf featured here is the Vail model and is our most premium shelf. Although the one shown here is quite large please know that yours will be made   to any length that you desire, at no extra charge.

    The body is salvaged barn wood that has been white and silver washed. The darker panels, along with the large 5.5″ crown and rope molding are Knotty Alder which has been glazed, giving it an unmistakable depth. The center carved panel has been painted an off white. The corbels are end trimmed with wrought iron scrolling. This is truly a one of a kind design.

    Each Vail is handmade and finished one at a time, we do not stock this style so please allow us the time needed to make this art piece.
