The Custom Wood Fireplace Hearth...
Truly Heart(h)-Warming!

The custom wood fireplace hearth, a beautiful collaboration between man and nature,  can stir both the heart(h) and soul.   Few,  if any,  natural materials exude the warmth of wood.    When paired with the hands of a skilled woodworking artisan,  the results  --  pictured below  --  can be mesmerizing!

As in the design pictured above,  left,  the cozy Colonial hearth,  below, beckons us to gather around.    Loaded with charm and ambiance,  this masterful present-day creation by Pennsylvania-based architect,  John Milner, embodies our nostalgic yearning for the "good old days."

Finely grained and richly finished hardwoods such as cherry and mahogany are among the most frequently used woods for custom fireplace hearth designs. However, softwoods like pine or fir can also be employed to form some very striking examples of the woodworker's art. The example pictured below, left, is crafted from knotty pine.

Walnut,  another finely grained hardwood,  was creatively employed in the unique, one of a kind example pictured below, left. In the example pic-
tured below, right, note how the relatively simple,
albeit exquisitely crafted surround is used to suc-
cessfully frame the beautiful herringbone pattern
of the firebrick used inside the firebox.

The following example is a beautifully executed Arts and Crafts,  or Crafts-
man
design.  Note the built-in seating flanking the fireplace . . . a common feature of the style.
