This is a Black Walnut Mantel and Corbels. The mantel is 49 1/4 inches wide, 11 inches deep, and 8 1/2 inches high.
The walnut is from a tree I harvested nearly a year ago in Lincoln, New Mexico. The top is rounded at the corners and the face of the mantel is rounded to match the top. As is seen, the grain in the wood runs around the corners and flows from end to end. The mantel is held tight to the wall with a french cleat
The corbels are 32 inches long, 8 inches wide, at the widest point, and 2 5/8 inches thick. The corbels are held tight to the wall with keyhole plates and screws and have a mortise and tenon fit to the bottom of the mantel and have square pegs to hold them tight to the mantel.
The mantel top, face, and corbels have inlaid turquoise placed in a discreet and pleasing manner so as not to overpower the wonderful grain and figure of the wood.
