This is a cherry fireplace mantel that my wife and I just finished. We have a good amount of remodeling experience but not too much in the area of finished woodworking. The mantel is made of cherry, stained with General Finishes Vintage Cherry, Garnett Shellac and multiple coats of satin Lacquer. It was a great project to try out some new router bits and our Apollo HVLP spray gun. We enjoyed taking the rough lumber, milling it and turning it into a finished product. We also did the tilework and flooring. It’s been a long haul remodeling the entire house. Thanks.

Well done! It is very sedate as the surroundings dictate. Keep up the good work.

That’s a nice job on that mantle, Ralph.
