Provide a brief overview about your business and your typical projects.
Based in Loveland, CO, Colorado Cabinet Makers is a small custom cabinet shop. The owners handle the business and design while 7 talented and dedicated woodworkers make sawdust in the shop. We do most of our own installs to keep quality control of the projects. Very little is outsourced while creating a wide variety of quality residential cabinetry and millwork. 
 
Describe your project, what makes it unusual, and/or any outstanding characteristics.
This Fireplace Surround was designed and built for Barbi and Chris for their lake front home. It was constructed of Rustic Knotty Alder, finished in a two-tone finish. The Spice Stain and Black Glaze finish, couples well with the Nightfall Black Paint. The black finish has a sand through, with a burnt umber glaze. Both colors are topped with an ultra-flat matte precat finish. This Finish matched other projects we had completed in the home. The super traditional styling with carved corbels and mouldings complimented the owners extensive collection of worldwide antiques throughout the home. The scale of the mantle is hard to appreciate in a photo. The 8/4 solid wood top measures 9’ across.
