Mantel in Progress

Ed’s been working on our mantel for the last couple of weekends.  He’s finished the surround, and it’s just beautiful.  Ed usually builds furniture in the early American style, but we went a little fancier for fireplace because it’s in our most formal room, with the coffered ceiling.  The materials were mostly leftover trim and peices salvaged from some of his jobs.  All he has left to do is make the actual mantel, and then I’ll paint it and it will be complete!

  1. Beautiful! What expert craftmanship, Ed! I bet you can’t wait to sit in front of a fire in this gorgeous fireplace on a cool evening in the near future!
