I'm looking to replace the (incredibly ugly) 1970's era mantel above my fireplace and am considering a barn beam. Can anyone recommend a good source in the Raleigh area? I'm willing to drive 1-1.5 hours if needed.

What are the measurements for your current fireplace mantel (l x w x thickness)? Picture?

What size barn beam would you like to find as a replacement?

Hey Jim, I have a good supply of barn beams from a couple buildings I took down on my farm. I'm located in Four Oaks, NC. About 40 minutes from Downtown Raleigh area, straight down I-40. I work in downtown, so could assist with delivery if needed as well.

Let me know what size you are looking for and I can send some photos. Feel free to call or text.

You have to check your thread to see if there are any replies there aren't any flashing lights or sirens to alert you.

No. I get emailed alerts when comments are posted to threads I'm "watching". I just missed the update for this one.

I had a piece of pine I thought might work for you but it has nail holes in both of the 3" thick faces. I was impressed when I counted the growth rings and got 23 per inch.
