I would like to replace the old mantle on my rock fireplace. The old
mantle is a solid piece of pine attached with pins drilled into the rock.
I am building a set of matching bookcases to stand on either side of the
rock fireplace and a new mantle out of one-bys and trim to span between
the bookcases and over the fireplace. I need to know the best way to
attach the mantle to the rock FP when I finish.
If you have done such before, please let me know how you did it.
