Thanksgiving Elecrtic Fireplace/TV Mantle


My lovely lady wanted a beautiful Show Piece for the living room custom made to fit an electric fireplace(safe for the children ) and to Place a TV above, mainly to impress her parents. The biggest challenge was to balance the size of the TV and the size of the fireplace so that each peace wouldn't overwhelm the other plus the fact this was my first major build with wood. The biggest surprise I had was how well the fire place fit in after I was done...I thought that would be the most difficult thing to deal with.Some of our friends have asked us where we bought it and I laughed and told them "just pick up some Ryobi tools and some wood,cement board and air Brick from Home depot. The thing I learned that I am going to put forward into my next project is that the right tools you invest in make the next project way easier
