great value, but could use some improvements
I had purchased this mantel unfinished as my wife an I wanted to stain it a specific color. Overall, I am very impressed with the craftsmanship of the product. However, one problem we ran into was with staining. Although it may not be obvious from the description, this is not a solid piece of wood. It is multiple pieces mitered, glued, and nailed together. The nail holes were filled with a non-stainable filler. As a result, there are some spotty areas where it did not take the color. Luckily, they are on the ends where few people would notice.

Lastly, I wish there was a better way to hang the mantel. It uses a traditional method of using a hidden cleat which you secure to the wall and literally hang the mantel. While this works well, it does not feel very solid. I will probably have to add some additional fasteners directly to the mantel to make it more stable.
