We didn’t like the molding surrounding our fireplace so one of the first things on the list of many things to do in this house we moved into a while back was build a fireplace mantel.
At HD’s I found a nice knot free clear pine 2”x8”x 8’ that I used to make the large cove molding under the shelf top. I made the cove molding on my table saw.
The top shelf is pine and all the molding set-in’s or inlays are pine made with my Router. All the flat facing surfaces are MDF. And yes It’s painted… boo hoo! But everyone says it looks nice!
