Need mantel help!

I have an unfinished fireplace mantel and need ideas! My thought was to go the metal route to match our stair rails but am curious for other options? I'm talking about that ledge above the fireplace.

Ideas?

A stainless steel box fitted over that wood shelf would look awesome. Metal shop should be able to fabricate. Just don't have it made too thin...the visual width needs to be thick enough to support the expanse of wall above it.

If willing to go all out modern, consider cladding the lower part of the hearth in SS too.
