The owners of this property in Chichester, West Sussex wanted a new shelf fitted above their Gas Stove. The original shelf in place was a grey slate effect to match in with the hearth.
However, they much prefer the look of wood, especially Oak. So after some discussion we decided to go with European Oak which then matches in with the Oak mirror above very well!
Once the shelf was fitted securely to the wall, the owners of the property were going to apply a clear beeswax to give the Oak some protection as well as the finish they want.
As you can see in the pictures above, there are a couple of tempory props in place. This is to hold the Oak Shelf level whilst the chemical resin we used sets. The owners took these out the next day to make sure the resin had over night to set very hard!
