'nother one

Here's another fireplace surround I did fairly recently, - - a little plain for my tastes, - - but she wanted a very simple and plain design. The tile work on this one was pre-existing. The construction is all MDF.

Oh yeah, - - did the hardwood floor, too, - - Mirage (pre-finished) red oak 'auburn' (3 1/4's)

Very nice. This looks like a definate case where clean and simple is much more asthetically pleasing than overly ornate and out of context with the surrounding decor or style of house.

Of course, maybe I am biased, because except for the color of the slate around the firebox, that is a twin of the mantle in my house, No kidding.

Looks good. Customers are wanting simple, paint grade mantles here too. 10 years ago It was the golden oak train...lol

Very Nice Job, I bet they'll enjoy it.

How do you price out your work? I want to start concentrating more on the cabinet making end of my business, which currently is a very small portion. Just a couple of pieces a year, so now that I want to build it up, I want to be sure that my margins stay profitable.
