I was just going to ask the same thing – dont think i’ve ever seen oak look that color. I’m curious as to what the finish is too! Looks like a great Mantle. Love the design – thanks for sharing

Yes, I have to agree. I’m not a big fan of oak as it all I grew up with. But the color is fantastic on this oak and the stone work is nice as well.

Me too, I want to know the finish. I am working on a pie safe and matching jelly cabinet in oak and this is the color I want to try to achieve.

this is a beautiful paint job on that oak.
is not just a simple staining process. Multi step dye on that oak. a base color like orange and a dark toning maybe a walnut or else and final glazing on the details tough.
I respect that you guys are professionals but it does not hurt a little info and let the knowledge pass to others.

keep up the good work.

Have your say...
