Irish oak burr fireplace

This Irish oak fireplace and mirror were a really straight forward project. Basic joints and just let the timber be the feature. I finished both with four coats of Danish oil.

Love it.
Simple but elegant, in a rustic way.

When it's rustic......it's rustic

Yeah it was a handy job Dominick. I think from start to finish it only took about a day and a half. So quite profitable, for a change!

Thanks for all the comments. Yeah tc I design all my own projects. But to be fair there wasn't much designing on this, the timber did it for me.

That's purdy. Nice job using the burl feature for an accent. Looks great.
