Cherry, traditional raised panel mantel. Our client wanted a lot of "character" to show in this piece. It's design needed to fit into the current finish of their house as well as integrate into the future design upgrades when they remodel parts of their home. It is an anniversary present and his wife has really wanted something to hang their Christmas stockings. From breadboard ends on the shelf to the wedged morticed and through tenons we created a heirloom piece to celebrate 27 years of marriage. This project has a hand rubbed finish.
