“Bedroom Pink” with matching corbels
I’m fortunate to live in a northern hardwood forest where I have access to extraordinary timber. A local logger/ miller friend of mine puts aside special unique logs that show the most beautiful unique figured character. Then he ages them for a year, mills them into mantel slabs instead of his usual boards, and passes them on – only to Mendota Mantels! I’m very lucky to know him! (Thank You John!)
This is one of those rare pieces. It’s a “Live edged” hard red maple with matching corbels. I sculpted the live edge smooth as you can see.
It occurs to me that this would be a great soft piece for a bedroom….or….perhaps a very contemporary home. You might call it just a bit “avant-gardes”. Oh…pink..? Why not?
It’s a lovely color and why do mantels always have to be just wood grain anyways?
