Topic tags/keywords: question fireplace mantel

Getting ready to redo the fireplace mantel and have been looking around for ideas and inspiration. It would be a wood mantel with a stone surround.

Feel free to post any plans or links to mantels you’ve done, or any tips you found helpful. I understand the basics of how to construct one, just want to get some ideas before I start designing.

Thanks LJs.
