Finally finished the fireplace and mantle installation. I’ve been thinking about it since we moved in over 10 years ago. The design for the mantle surround just came from basic ideas I was Kicking around in my head.
Materials are cherry, curly maple and I made some trim molding from Black Walnut. Finished with Arm R seal semi gloss. The last photo shows the “before”.

That’s about a thousand-times improvement—well done!

Not overly ornate or embellished. I guess I would have to call it elegant. Nice work.
