Hand crafted from solid Red Oak. The panels are hammered copper panels onto a MDF mould,, then tiger torched with sulphur for speeding the oxidation. Chiseled with a gouge, the accent tops and sides provide a little visual, but pleasant distraction, solid raised panels, with the actual top panel of mantle, being hammered copper, same as above with the obsolete Canadian penny as a detail.

Thanks for looking

I’m going with “Magnificent” brother.
It works beautifully in the setting, and your attention to detail is always top-notch.

Very well done. Enjoyed looking at this one and the copper really sets it apart.

Beautiful. That about sums it up.

Beautiful! One doesn’t see many paneled fireplace surrounds made these days.
