Here is the project I did for my wife it was her x mas gift. I had alot of fun with this and learned allot had to redo the side columns the first try they came out to narrow for the size of the top so I had to redo them but it was woth it. While building the frame for the fire place I didn’t want to waste all the space above the fire place so I decided this was a good place for the tv and other equipment. built it big enough for a 36” tv and when my wife says I can have my flat screen the tv will hang over the opening on a movable panel to allow the space to be converted for storage of DVD’s and playstations etc. and be hidden and out of sight.

Very nice work… The 45 degree angles on the mantel and hearth are very smart looking.

This is a gorgeous project. I am sure that your wife is happy with it. I may have to “borrow” some of your ideas. I promised one of these as a Christmas gift several years ago but have never gotten around to building it. Needless to say I still hear about it.

I like the way it matches your woodwork as well. I am a firm believer that you can’t put too much wood into a home.

Nice job.
