Fireplace Facade



I built a "temporary" mantle over the fireplace 20 years ago. Finally got around to building a true fireplace surround and mantle appropriate to the fireplace. The entire piece was built in my basement and carried up to the living room, and hung on cleats fastened to the brick. I curved some molding to match the arch in the fireplace door. I used a router to create most of the moldings, though some are stock. The mantle is a solid piece of 2" oak, with a slight arc across the front.
