This is a Walnut mantle that I recently completed. It is a little over 9’ wide and stands about 6’ tall at the top of the mantel. The mantel is 13” deep. The center panel is again a Walnut Burl veneer with an “L” that represents the customers initials. The “L” is 4 separate pieces that were cut out on a CNC router. The leaf carving is an onlay that was purchased. The flutes were made in shop and the corbels were carved by a carver that we have in shop.
The top of the mantel actually has an outlet with a wooden cover that matches the top so the customer could set some lamps on top and not have cords running everywhere. Sorry that I did not get a picture of the top.
The panels on top of the mantel are also made of Walnut with a flat walnut panel. We also built all the beams, wainscot panels, and cabinets for this room which I will post later when the room is completely done.
