Live Edge Hickory Fireplace Mantel

bpr-mantel11The following project was completed by Blasty Paint & Renovation. (Sent in from Windsor Plywood Langley location)

The mantle was constructed of Live edge Hickory purchased from the  Langley store.  The Hickory has had the barked removed, machined, sanded, stained, and finished.  I choose a polyurethane rub coating to finish due to the high wearing, durability and beauty of this product. The face of the fireplace has been finished with a split face travertine tile and pencil tile around the fireplace face.  This is a face-less fireplace, which results in the black trim around the fireplace being covered by tile.  I really enjoyed completing this project for the client.  They are ecstatic with the final product.

Entered February 8th, 2008 by Randy near Fort St. John, BC
“My wife and I spend the latter part of summer and fall building this sun room off the side of our house. There used to be an old deck there so we decided to make it a usable room. The rafters and glass were purchased fromm Pacific Sun Rooms but pretty well everything else from the sub floor to the tongue and groove pine and cedar Sun Room 037laminate flooring and siding came from Windsor. I got to know the employees pretty well. We even insulated the walls and ceiling and it all came from Windsor in Fort St. John B.C. They are a great bunch of people.”
