I recently completed this walnut mantle, it was a fun little project.
The client had a friend give them a couple boards of walnut. (second picture)
They decided they would like it to keep the live edge on that thicker piece. So to keep the theme going I cut the ends of the top board, mitered at the same angle as the front. Then I distressed each end so it would blend. Then to give it alittle more of an aged look I applied three coats of a special oil finish.
The client is really happy and the friend that gave them the boards is tickled that they were used so appropriatly.
