I am looking for a carpenter to build me a simple, modern mantel like the one pictured. My stone fireplace currently has no mantel and is about 73" across (you will need to take exact measurements). I would like the mantel to be made of quality wood and stained grey or black and sealed before installation. Please be familiar with professional installation that will not damage or scratch the surrounding stone (which is painted) and will give the no-brackets appearance of the picture.
The picture is of the type of mantel I want, not my fireplace. I would appreciate receiving photos of your previous carpentry work or references.
