Custom Wood Carving Image

Custom Fireplace Mantels by Joe Cummings.

The Fireplace mantle shown below is over 5 feet in length and 14 inches wide. This is the first in a series of four mantles that Joe is currently producing. All four designs will be western themes. The thickness of the mantle below is about 2 inches but it is relieved down to 1/2 inch in some places. This is as close to a full relief carving as you get. The detail in the coach, horses and tack is absolutely amazing. You will have to study the mantel time after time to appreciate the attention to detail such as the birds in the background, the smile on the man's face in the back of the coach, and the matching horses "socks".
