One of the perks of creating custom fireplace mantels is the opportunity to collaborate with artisans working with other materials.

When one of our customers asks for specific designs regarding their corbels and if the request is to be created in metal then we turn to our good friend—Ken Williams at www.wildwoodforge.com . Ken has the uncanny insight/creativity to mate the hard metal world with the soft wood world. Visit his site and see for your self.

If you do not see what you may like to do with an addition of forged metal to your custom mantel then by all means ask Ken directly or call and discuss it with me and it will get passed on to him.

Ken and I are looking forward to jointly creating some new offerings in the marrying of custom metal forging with custom wood mantels.

Stay tuned and check back with us…… Could be very interesting!
