Fireplace Built-ins

We moved into our new house and the fireplace mantle was lacking to say the least. My wife had always wanted built-ins. After lots of research and drawings, we finally decided on a design. The challenge was to incorporate existing columns. It actually adds to the look. The walls weren't exactly straight so that presented additional problems. Everyone loves them and we get compliments on them all the time. It was a great way to showcase my ability as a carpenter. People actually want to hire me to do projects for them.
