Live edge walnut mantle for a recent project.
used a 5” thick walnut slab, mantle is 58” long

I chopped out a mortise and have an electric outlet that is switched at the wall.

Finished with dark walnut stain and 5 coats of poly

I applied a split stone on fireplace wall and epoxied mantle on rebar rods that were installed in studs.

Thanks guys,

I have some nice off cuts of the walnut, don’t know what to do with them yet. Maybe be part of a leg vise?
