Fireplace Mantel and Bookshelves

February 9, 2010 · Print This Article

This piece was meticulously designed and carefully crafted to complement the refined taste of the owner of this turn of the century Berkeley/Albany bungalow. Hand rubbed oil finish provides a rich, dynamic luster to the certified sustainably harvested cherry.

Here you can see a detail of the joinery where the two pieces of the 14 foot top meet.  The pop out fireplace creates definition from the bookshelves.

Myself and the homeowners are quite pleased with the way this project turned out.

    This is absolutely stunning. The craftsmanship is amazing, but put together in the setting with the color choices it’s just breathtaking. And I love the tile choice. It may be the only part of the scene I can currently replicate! Do you know what brand it was? Or was it handmade locally?

Got something to say?
