I finally finished the wood work surounding our wood heater.
The walls are misc. rock from our property (full of fossils), the smokies and as seen in pic 1 sharks teeth from the Peace River in Florida.
The mantle is from a Chestnut oak I had to remove for my shop addition.
The upper walls are from a red oak downed by storms 3 years ago. I planed it 3 different thicknesses, 1/4 turn on my planer is about 1/64”, tongue and grooved the sides and ends, and installed in 3 different angles. The outer horizonal boards are 4 defferent widths. This really breaks up the light and pattern. The vertical sideboards are pine with a blue streaking about 2×6 reaching from floor to ceiling.
It all blends nicely with our ” storebought” v groove pine walls and 1x red oak flooring.
Thanks fer lookin,
