Don’t know dimensions of timbers, they just sent these pics stating material is on site. What? Cut plugs, drill thru timbers, attach w/timberlocks, apply plugs? Any other ideas that aren’t akin to building a piano? Do tile hearth first? May need some blocking. Pretty sure they are plaster walls.

Another idea is to use a Z CLIP which does the same thing that a French cleat does. They are made out of aluminum and you can buy 2” pieces or lengths up to 18’ . Attached is what came up for images, Z clips on the search.

I used two – Keylock newel post fasteners on my mantle above hearth. Recessed the plate on the back side of the mantle – lag bolt in the wall stud.
