Two-sided fireplace needed at least two long mantels. Built a wrap-around mantel shelf. Main wood is alder with African Padauk inlay and walnut plugs and appliques. Shop-made corbels and Finger joint construction.

A lot of small details that really elevate this above a normal mantel.

I like the craftsman details… this is very sharp!

Exquisite! An absolute showroom feature. The Greene and Greene details make all the difference.
