I love this! How do you mount it to the wall?

Thanks - I had a great time working on the design.
This was mounted with some heavy duty steel angles bolted to the studs. You will need to work with an engineer to understand the requirements for the weight and span of the piece you are actually hanging

How is the mantel mounted on the wall. Is it just mounted in the stone? - I bought a fireplace mantel like this one but because I have a window above my fireplace I can't use stone like this. My contractor is working on a proposal for me but because the mantel weighs about 200 pounds I am wondering if he is going to have to reinforce the studs to hold the mantel on the wall.

You should have this checked by an engineer.

Homeowner purchased this a few years ago at Pottery barn at a Discontinued/Closeout Sale.
Looks like they still have something similar -

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Design Greener: Using Reclaimed Wood
This beam repurposed as a mantle has so much character - the dings and flaws just make it more interesting.
Railroad tie. A repurposed railroad tie sends a great design message for bold rustic interiors. Design tip: Railroad ties can be very twisted and warped. When you're hunting for a salvaged railroad tie, it is important to find one that is as level as possible.
