Odhner and Odhner Fine Woodworking makes beautiful custom fireplace walls. Whether you’re looking for a whole wall, some bookcases, or just a custom mantel, we can give you just what you want.
We have had lots of practice designing for fireplace walls. We can build a custom mantel, panel the wall above it if you like… add bookcases and cabinets on either side for a more complete treatment. Many times we’ve designed cabinetry and paneling to conceal a masonry wall built in an earlier era that now that seems unattractive or unfashionable. We’ve also created fireplace walls from blank walls, building cabinetry & bookcases around a zero-clearance gas or electric fireplace unit.
We can work with your designer or architect, or provide in-house design. Although our shop is located in Easton, PA, we have a design professional conveniently located who will visit your home to to confer with you, get a feeling for your taste and style, and carefully measure the area. They will work patiently with you help you arrive at the look and layout you’re searching for. We’ll furnish 3-D renderings and architectural drawings, emailing them to you for your consideration. We can help you in the selection of woods and colors, showing you actual wood samples.
While adhering to many time-tested woodworking traditions, we us modern methods where appropriate. With our long experience building fireplace walls we know what woods and what methods of construction will give most long-lasting and esthetically pleasing results. Using traditional joinery along with modern fasteners, adhesives, and finishes, we make fireplace walls of enduring beauty and functionality.
When we build your fireplace wall, we’ll choose the materials carefully, selecting them for their beauty and longevity. For our natural wood finishes we use native American hardwoods (cherry, maple, oak, and walnut) and imported mahogany, all selected for their beauty and richness. For our painted finishes we use maple, birch, and poplar, each chosen for its unique characteristics. When veneered constructions are needed for strength and stability, we select panels with wood-veneer cores as opposed to cheaper fiber-cores.
Easton, PA, situated at the meeting of the Lehigh and Delaware Rivers, has long been a magnet for talented woodworkers.
