Rec room fireplace in progress

Project by MSRiverdog posted 05-23-2008 01:06 AM 3619 views 0 times favorited 6 comments Add to Favorites Watch

I did this in my rec room a couple years ago. Just quick and cheap, my house is for sale but because of the land value didn’t want to put a bunch of money into it, good chance it’ll be leveled or super tricked out. Simple face frame with pocket hole jointery, solid Red Oak edges and crown, the mantle is 1/4 inch Oak ply rimmed with Red Oak boards as a cover over the limestone mantle. Nothing fancy but din’t cost much either.

Looks good, although for me this’d be one of those projects that’d snowball ‘cause I think those panels need something…

Yep they do, but I don’t spend enough time down there to monkey with it. If I did it’ld drive me nuts. Needs about a 50 inch Musky replica on it. :) I’ld also cover the brick with something.

Nice work riverdog. The addition makes the fireplace more classy.

Always good to have a nice wood accent to offset the brick and it goes nice with the wainscot.

Very clean looking fireplace. I can not tell the “quick and cheap” part looking at it from my chair….
