Over the years I have built quite a number of Fireplace Surrounds. These photo’s represent my favorites.
The very first one I shipped to NJ and it has always been my favorite. You can probably make out 2 sets of columns.
In fact there is 2 half sets that are split and attached to the surround face. The other 2 sets set out with about 6” between them.

Thanks for looking, Todd

Cool stuff. Seems like these would be fun projects, where you can draw on classic architecture and just go wild.

I like #2 the best. I like how high up off the ground the fireplace is. Sit on the bench in front and warm your back on a cold day.

Great builds! They are all well designed and well installed and give a great look to the whole room.

Have your say...
