    Finally got the pics of my friends mantles in their timber framed home. I was having a bit of trouble seeing in my minds eye, how two mantles so narrow would work. So, here's the pic of the mantles as I milled and surfaced them, and two pics of the finished project. On my phone you couldn't really see the wood. So, this is the first time I've seen them on a bigger screen.

    One reason the top piece looks so dark is it's head on into the bark. They wanted to leave the bark on, and used an epoxy finish. Hope it lasts a long time.

    I just asked for a couple more pics so we can see the grain and the bark joining.

    Just finished these with walnut milled 2 years ago. If you have access to walnut and aren't milling it you need to start. Got some great figure in these stools.

    The local young fella who runs a micro street-side cafe bought some slabs I milled couple of years ago and made 2 tables and two stand up benches as his only cafe tables. Recently he and his business partner also bought a small roastery and came to see me to buy more slabs. This is one they made into what is called a cupping table - the term cupping refers to "coffee cupping" a minimal interference method of brewing the roasted coffee not long after it comes out of the roaster. Usually the roasters plus the hangers on all get to try the cupping. They did both the wood and metal work.
