Dear Carol,

Attached please find the before and after shot of my mantel. With all the electrical and breaker box issues I had, your expert advice found me a mantel that fit perfectly. I varied the mantel instructions a tad by placing the 3 thin, interior wood pieces above the fireplace rather than in the interior. It framed my picture which I liked.

Thank you Agee! From problem solving to design, you helped me transform my sitting room into a cozy and inviting environment!

Hi Carol!

I know it's been a long time, but I finally have pictures of the mantel installed at our beach house. We LOVE it! It just makes the room. Thank you for all your help. I am attaching the photos. Hope all is well there.

Thanks again!

Thanks. Attached is pic of our mantel decorated for Christmas. I will send you another one after the first of the year.

Merry Christmas,

Hi there,

I promised to send some pictures of my fireplace mantel when I was finished building my colonial house. I am very happy with the quality and look of the mantel, and everything that was needed to install the mantel was included with the kit. Very easy to put together and install.

Thanks again, and a soon-to-be bedroom gas fireplace will have an Agee Woodworks mantel on it!

The mantel you built for us worked out very nicely. We have had a quite a few compliments about the mantel!

Attached is a photo...I hope you like the picture.

Best regards,

Rob Martin

My family and friends are most impressed with the Agee Harrison Mantel you custom designed for us. The entire experience from ordering, modifying our custom request with Carol on the phone, all of the help from your staff, the receipt of the mantel in excellent condition here in California, the ease of assembly and installation was most pleasant and very efficient. We are thrilled with the mantel! The mantel adds so very much to the warmth and ambiance of our home. We will enthusiastically recommend Agee Mantels to all our friends and my business associates in my career as a commercial real estate executive.

Sincerely, and with great respect and appreciation,

I received my mantel a week ago, finally opened it, and I am so pleased. Put a coat of paint on it and it's beautiful. I referred a friend to mine, that admired my mantel, to you yesterday. I have looked on the web for awhile and the prices were ridiculous, your price was lower and now that I see the product, I guess you can get a great deal and quality also. Thank you very much!

Thank you very much for such a beautiful mantle. It has totally changed the appearance of our living room and we have received many wonderful compliments on the quality.

Fireplace MantleHello Carol:

We finally got the mantels finished. We first stained them white, but were just too stark. Our decor is French country, so we stained them a weathered pale-yellow. This is a two-sided fireplace; one side being the family den, so we wanted that mantel more plain.

The other side is the living room, which we applied detail to make it a little dressier. We've had so many good comments on how pretty they are, just wanted to share with you. Be blessed.



I'm very pleased with the quality and fit of my new mantle and recommend your company for its superior workmanship and product value. Thanks for helping me build the perfect mantle for my decor - all from an internet photo!

Hi Carol:
As I promised, I have attached two photos of my new mantel. I am very very satisfied, and it fit perfectly. we made our own custom Minwax stain using two colors at a 3 to 1 ratio, and stained, sealed and varnished to a gloss finish, wow was [my wife] impressed, the workmanship of your builders in your shop really showed through in the final product.

Christine MantleJust wanted to drop you a line to tell you how much I love the mantle. It fits perfectly and it arrived right when you said it would. My husband put it up tonight and we love it. Thanks again!

Dear Carol,

A totally positive experience working with Agee Woodworks. Starting with the first email to the personal telephone calls, all was handled as if we had a personal design team working for us.

From the timely communications, to the "ahead of promised" delivery, to the beautiful craftsmanship and unbelievable pricing, there is no other choice for your mantle needs.

With warm regards,
Kingston, NY
I am writing to express my extreme pleasure for the Georgian fireplace I purchased from your company. It is absolutely beautiful! My husband was initially skeptical about the "need" for it, but now says it brings the whole room to life!

Three friends also dropped over to see it, and based on their comments, you will probably have three more customers! Thank you so much for the beautiful fireplace, and for the warm and personal customer service!

Just wanted to send a photo and thank you for the excellent workmanship that went into your fireplace mantle. I installed it myself and it looked great for it's first Christmas.

I received my mantle shelf today and it is actually more than I expected. Your quality work is greatly appreciated as is the quickness with which you were able to complete the job. Your commitment to quality is evident in my mantle/shelf. I'm surely glad I stumbled across your website.

If I ever get a question about where to buy a mantle---the answer will be Agee!! Many thanks and I hope you and your staff have a very Happy Holiday Season.

I spent many hours looking for a quality mantel at a reasonable price both at local supply houses and on the internet and Agee Woodworks was by far the best value. From design to delivery, I was very happy both in the manner in which we proceeded and especially in the final product. As an owner of a pre-Revolutionary War home with six fireplaces, I'll certainly be emailing Agee Woodworks when I replace the other mantels in my home.


fireplace mantle AliceLike many built just after the 1906 earthquake, our Victorian apartment in the heart of San Francisco has beautiful woodwork detailing. We like to balance contemporary furniture with the classic features of our house. In looking for a mantle, we therefore wanted a design that echoed the woodwork detailing of the house, while also achieving a simple and clean design that would harmonize with our furniture. Based only on a photograph of a door frame, Agee Woodworks did wonders in creating this elegant and sympathetic mantle.

On top of your fantastic service, the mantle is a superior product. You can see from the construction that your husband and staff know what they are doing. The mantle is very well made, and I am sure it will last us many, many years. We have already had a few friends ask us where were got the mantle. I have directed them to your website, and informed them that I would highly recommend Agee Woodworks for service, quality products and very reasonable pricing.

Thanks again,

fireplace mantle tim"I came across Agee Woodworks on Ebay. I needed an oversized Cobblestone mantel, and the folks at Agee worked with me to determine my exact needs. I found the staff at Agee to be knowledgeable and very responsive. They provided me with a cost-effective shipping source, and they built my mantel to my exact specifications very quickly. I'm thrilled with the mantel and the whole experience working with Agee. I wholeheartedly recommend them!"

Agee Woodworks, I want to thank you for the high-quality customer service you provided me throughout the measuring and installation process of my custom mantel. Several times throughout the process I was very apprehensive but you all made me feel at ease. The mantel arrived in perfect condition and to the exact specifications. The detail and craftsmanship of this mantel, with all the special touches you added per my request, are absolutely amazing. My friends and family ask where I found such a perfect mantel and I recommend Agee Woodworks without hesitation every time.
