Oak Mantle

Oak Mantle


This space was a modification from an only 7 year old house in the Livermore wine country.  A cast stone mantle was replaced with an oak mantle matching the existing media center.  A black granite hearth was installed in place of the original cast stone hearth.  18×18 travertine tiles replaced the original face as well as black granite accents matching the granite hearth. Electrical and HDMI cables were run to accomodate the large tv above the mantle.  Matching doors were custom built and installed to match the lower doors.  Thanks to Jim Millen at Millen’s Woodworking in Castro Valley, this mantle also has fluting on the sides of each leg adding an accent that matches both the media center as well as several columns in the kitchen.  Click the following link for some of his work in custom cabinet building  http://millenswoodworking.com/
