David Getts takes a professional's look at the art and craft of making mantels, with extensive color photo coverage of modern mantels and mantels from a century or more, ago. The gallery of what is, and has been, covers more than 20 pages, some of which are exceptionally impressive (bookmatched mahogany paneling, with extensive carving at the upper trim parts) and exceptionally (and deceptively) simple looking, like a whitewashed flat maple mantel. Hundreds of color photographs and black and white drawings take you through the steps needed to produce both simple and complex mantels of your own. Coverage is provided for recessed side walls as well as non-recessed. This book provides enough instruction for even a total beginner to make a good-looking, sturdy mantel, while it provides enough incentive to help the professional produce better looking mantels, both simple and complex as the client desires.Softcover; 192pgs.ISBN-10: 0941936724.ISBN-13: 978-0941936729.
