Typical of mantels found in 19th-century farmhouses, this mantel's flat relief and plain treatment, based on the styles of classical architecture, perfectly frame the Federal-period hearth opening. The mantel is finished with paint.

For a project plan and step-by-step construction information, see Mario Rodriguez's book, Building Fireplace Mantels.
