A school teacher friend of mine was tired of looking at so much brick around her fireplace so she asked if I could make it look like a picture that she had seen. I took a look at the job not realizing it was in a corner and more than 7 feet wide. I used stock mouldings and made the plinth blocks and bead work out of 5/4 and 6/4 poplar. I only have to apply the top coat of Swiss Coffee enamel and I know she is real happy. The first picture is in its final stage, the next pictures show the before and the template used for the top.
