This mantel finishes at approximately 7-1/2" x 7-1/2" due to planing and distressing.
Please keep in mind the depth of your installation. If you are surrounding your mantel with brick or stone after you install your mantel, you will lose a bit of the depth as a result. This is just for planning purposes, not necessarily a bad thing.
We router out a pocket on the back side of the mantel to make installation a breeze. Most mantels of this style leave you to figure out install with brackets or corbels but with ours you don't need to provide anything. We supply a hanger board that is cut to size for the pocket in the back and screws to attach it to wood studs (if you are screwing it to a masonry wall, you will need to provide them). We also provide easy instructions, however, it is yours or the contractor's responsibility to make sure that it goes on securely, we just provide an easy way to make it happen.
