Live edge wood mantel sources?

pumpkinhouseApril 11, 2014

I am looking for a live edge wood mantel, preferably walnut. I'm finding a lot of wood slabs available online, but not finished mantels. Does anyone know of any online retailers that have a decent selection?
Another option would be to have a portable sawmill come to our property and use a tree we have. I'd avoid shipping costs, but it might end up costing more once I add in the cost of drying. Plus I have no idea what it will look like until it's sawn.

I don't understand what it is you desire us to help you with since you are "finding a lot of slabs online." One slab from online+one trip to a cabinet shop to have it planed to your specs= a piece ready for constructing the mantle.
Unless you or I aren't seeing the forest for the trees.

There are seldom two mantels alike, so you will need to buy the slab you like and have a shop(woodworker/cabinet/etc.) finish to the required size.
