new mantel over granite hearth
I just installed a granite hearth. the granite is in a corner a 45 piece connecting the two perpendicular walls. there is wall board above the granite. I want to design and make a decorative mantel. this is not a fireplace, but rather a wood stove is centered on this three sided area. a hole is in the granite with the thimble going to the chimmeny.
does anyone know of books or such that might give me some ideas as to the design?
