This is my recently completed “Man Room” fireplace mantle. The log was a red cedar sawn on our Mom and Dad’s place and kiln dried. Inital checks were filled with epoxy. I hand scraped the bark off and sawed the stobs flush with the exterior of the log. The log was sanded to 220g then received 3 coats of hand brushed poly. The top received 5 coats of hand brushed poly which was wet sanded to 1000g and then buffed to a high shine with steel wool up to OOOO. The corbells are made of 3 layers of 1” cedar and shaped with spindel sander.
I think it adds alot to the room.
