DIY mantel


I'd like to mount a floating fireplace mantel to wood studs. Any thoughts on construction of a mantel as well as mounting?

DIY mantel


Build the mantel so a 2X4, standing edgewise, will slide inside the back. Fasten the 2X4 to the studs, slide the mantel onto the 2X4 and nail mantel through top of mantel into 2X4.

Thanks, Jim. I don't even have a fireplace, but I'm filing that info away for future use.
