Traditional Mantel Design

Currently, Im in the shop working on this mantel for our customer. The design was inspired by a picture in Get Your House Right. I also used a few other resourses to help me decide on the details. What I like most about this design is that all the moldings are restrained. Im used to using larger moldings for mantels but every picture I have seen recently in most of my books show mantels with smaller moldings..and over hanging emphasized mantel tops. I thought I would step out of my comfort zone on this one, and use some of the new things I have been learning. Of course none of this would be possible if I did not use Sketchup to see what my ideas would look like. Also to get my customers approval on my design.

Look for an update on progress shots soon!
