fireplace mantel and front

here is a fireplace front that i made for a friend of mine.

all of the core box pieces were done on my carvewright along with the corbel which i made in for pieces and glue them up to the thickness that i wanted. in the center is a pheasant scene that was also done on the carvewright.

the front, hearth, and mantel were made out of alder, then stained Sherwin Williams library oak, and then laquered.

i still have a shelf to finish if i could only get my spray gun to work for the silver box that is sitting on the bar stool. it will go above the flat screen tv.

i hope everyone like it

have a great weekend

kendall

That's awesome Kendall. I think it is nicely proportioned and the finish looks fantastic. Pheasants huh? Must be for a South Dakotan.

Fireplace looks fantastic. I like the concentric boxes in the corners. They really frame the project nicely.

Beautiful! I love the contrast of the carved scene against the darker panels!

Hi Kendall

Just go to the forum section "Tools, Materials, and Safety", and do a review of your Carvewright. How to use it, setup, overall performance, service from the company supplying it, costs, anything that you think might be interesting to anyone who is considering buying similar equipment.

The pheasant scene looks great.

Thanks

Gerry
