Mantelpiece

This is a mantel that I designed and built for a client. It is made out of curly cherry that the client furnished so it would match the rest of the interior floor and moldings. The brick work originally just stuck out into the room and didn’t go to the ceiling. They asked me to build the wall out . Building the wall out took 10 hours.

The reeding is curved not flat. I made a scraping tool to produce the reeding with. It took 201 hours to build this mantel.
