Project Description

This Honduras Mahogany fireplace was built to replace a painted two-by-four. It includes paneled offset ogee brackets and beaded cornice mouldings, and bold dentils (see detail). The hearth and surround are of fine Italian verdigris marble.

Designed by Julian Smith and built by us, this mantle was a part of a whole house restoration. It is made of hard maple with clear oil finish. The hand-carved mantle, shelf and moldings bow or swell outward. The sub-assemblies were shipped and installed in one day.
