Mantle Build

I've got a real simple full mantle going and thought I might post up the build process and a tip for working with small mouldings. The first thing you need to do on a build like this is create your cut list. If you don't know how to do that... well. I'm not going into it here. But these builds always start with a cut list that allows me to spend a little quality time with the tablesaw to produce all the parts to build the project. The first photo is all the cut parts for this one. The second shows the leg bodies assembled. Notice how one side is shorter than the other, this is so the mantle leg can overlap the ston of the mantle facing.
