Client wanted a slab of wood look. She was so excited when I brought it in and installed it, said it was exactly what she wanted. Whew, the reveal is always the nervous part for me. I was so glad she liked it, between you and me I had a lot of mistakes to hide LOL.
So its 4/4 oak that I picked out so when I mitered the top to the front the grain would match. I pocket holed the sides to the top and front for extra strength then a dark walnut stain with my modernized french polish finish.
I seen another lumberjock here recently did a nice cherry mantel and asked him how he attached it, so I went with the very popular commercial grade adhesive also.
Anyway let me know what you think, good bad ugly whatever hee hee
Thanks for checking it out
