Thanks Motherbear,
I wasn't to clear what I realy wanted to know is was the surround using real wood or a composit. My problem is I want to surround a fireplace with a wood product but all the vendors (Lumber Liquidators - Home Depot) tell me that they would not recommend using wood or laminate because of the heat generated (141 F) by the fireplace. Sorry to be so verbose.
Thanks again for the response

I would determine what code clearances are for the type of FP you plan to have & then speak to a reputable & experienced carpenter.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margaret Everton added this to Industrial Chic Hearths
The blend of materials, shapes, and shades of neutrals make this room chic and fascinating. The white frame of the fireplace offers a surprising inversion.
Even subtle changes such as positioning and angles can change the flow and look. Next: 15 quick kitchen fixes Browse more home design photos
Natalie Myers added this to Gnarly End Tables!
A gorgeous slice of tree trunk has been transformed into a polished and stylish coffee table. The wood element looks just right with the austere wood arm chairs and modern wood-framed fireplace. But the freeform amoeba-like table shape adds a casual air to what would otherwise be a fairly stiff room.
Judith Taylor Designs added this to 9 Planning Musts Before You Start a Makeover
5. Prepare a budget. Skipping this planning step can leave you open to impulse buys and a mishmash result rather than the look you want. A planned approach will keep you on track and deliver a well thought-out result.While we’re on the topic of budget, don’t buy quantity over quality. Buy fewer pieces but make them special. Buy the things you just can’t walk away without.

Love the surround - we could use a wood to match out cabinets then go back to slab stone above or tile to ceiling. Niches could go up with back panels and second material and integrated lighting as well.
