    What type of wood was used
  • PRO
    Ellen Grasso & Sons, LLC
    Mahogany. We built the beams out of solid stock - 1x8's cut to be exactly 1x7 (the distance between the doors). The beams could have been made from mahogany plywood since the edges are mitered. We used the 1" strips left over as a border in the dining room floor. It looked really nice.

    I don't, but the tile come in 3 sizes - 2x9, 3x16, and 4x24. Each row only has one size tile in it. The tile came from Materials Marketing in San Antonio and is called "Vintage Vein"

    My kitchen and counter top are white. The family room is seperate but adjoining. We were considering putting in decorative beams like these. Would you put dark beams or paint them white to continue the theme of the cabinetry in kitchen which is white. I feel as though the fireplace mantle should be the same as the ceiling beams. Our floors are a warm honey hardwood. The window frames are also white in kitchen and family room.

    We did an orange peel mist. It's almost no texture. Since then, I have had several clients ask for even smoother walls. What I have been doing lately is imperfect smooth. It's not museum quality, which can be really expensive, but smooth walls with some small imperfections. It seems to be acceptable without running the price up.

    These doors and the beams and cabinets are mahogany. It has a nice tight grain that's not very visible. You could do maple and give it two coats of stain or maybe clear alder.

    Ellen is correct.

    Plus, woodburning fireplaces produce very little convective heat (hot air) versus radiant heat (which travels as light), so the area two feet above the fireplace opening is in very little danger, even without a mantel.

    If you are trying to mount to an actual masonry fireplace, the trick is usually related to getting all of the wiring done.
