The Saw Table: DIY Walnut Mantel 003. Everyone needs a mantel over there fireplace!
I wanted to have this mantel look natural and to float on the wall so I used unistrut as the mounting hardware which is commonly used in electrical applications, after hollowing out the backside of the walnut so the unistrut would be concealed it was easy to mount the unistrut to the wall with standard hardware and use spring-nuts and then large bolts thru the front of the mantel to secure it.
the bolts gave a nice rustic industrial appearance
