This fireplace surround is in my retreat center –
I made it using old barn boards from the original barn. All I have to do is grout the tile and install the switch.
Another project to check off the list!

I’ve already made the basswood mantle board that I will chip carve. When it is done I’ll remove the barn boards on the face and install the one that’s carved. Planning ahead, doncha know!
