Made this mantle for a customer, I just love how it turned out. 5’ long X 17” deep X 3” thick, finished with 5 coats of polyurethane gloss. Made from eastern red cedar.

Thanks for sharing.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
