Living room Family room
The project included two areas in my home. The living room fire place was plain and nondescript and the family room had no area for entertainment equipment (TV, Stereo, etc.)
In the living room I created a complete surround for the fireplace and mantel and an associated area for a big screen TV with display cubbies and cabinets.
The family room was createsd as an area for another gig screen TV with display /book cubbies and cabinets below. The wood is all cypress milled locally and planed to size on my Riobe 13" planner. The connections are all pocket hole by Kreg and biscuit jointery bu Riobe.
