Finished up my mantel build with reclaimed wood
« on: February 07, 2017, 05:02:42 PM »
I built a mantel a few weeks ago out of the customers reclaimed wood. He gave me a whole pile of reclaimed heart pine 2x4s from his grandmother's old homestead. I pretty much just laminated them together and made one solid beam. It turned out nicely I thought. Made a short clip showing the process.

  Very good looking craftsmanship. Is that for your own use or do you have a customer for it? Mind if I ask the sale price for something like that mantel?

  I have a 6"X24"X40' beam on each end of my log home. Never thought about the work involved. I am sure they did not put as much time and effort into the build as you did.

You do nice work.  Beautiful mantle.  I'm jealous of that limestone fireplace.  Wow!  Gary
