I built this fireplace mantel when we had a wood burning fireplace installed in our house. It all came from one solid block of sapele, and I managed to book-match the two posts. The carved effect of the brackets comes from putting a different profile on two of the five laminated pieces. This design actually came from a wood magazine article about making book ends!

I discuss this project and some of my other past projects in this video:
