I recently realized that I had forgotten to post this project. I think I did it last winter.
It is made of pine, mitered at the corners to hide the end grain.
Surfaced with a scrub plane first for texture, beat up with miscellaneous tools for distressing.
Dyed with Transtint I had left over from other projects. Antique maple with a little mission brown mixed in.
One benefit to having this mantle was that it allowed me to run cables easily around the fire place. Now I have the TV on the other side of the room like my wife has always wanted. (it was a pain though).
Thanks for looking!
