This custom copper fireplace mantle shroud cover I made for a contractor in California for a client who saw one like this at a Disney Land resort and wanted one like it for their home. It was contracted through: 

Matt Yaden
S&J PROPERTIES
General Contractor Lic. #867991 Class B
9000 Crow Canyon Rd, S-300
Danville, CA 94506

He contacted me on 4/30/09. We worked out the details and I received his payment in 5/13/09, and it was shipped off to them by 6/25/08. Here is some of the before and after shots I got from them.

 

Here's a few of the shots I sent them during the fabrication process:

The depth of the mantle was the most limiting factor. They even made it thicker to help give us a couple inches more depth to work with, so the face of the hood had a more noticeable curve to it. I followed the height listed in the last diagram of 45.5" up the back side and an inch higher in the front. It is just over 61" wide at the bottom, and 8" deep, with just over 30" wide at the top, 2" deep. There is a concave up the front, but of course it is not as pronounced as the sides; with a 15.5" variance between the top and bottom on each side. Where the front face only had a 6" variance.

I needed to make this wood frame to mount the copper on. I layered 2 sheets of 1/4" hardwood plywood to give me this soft curve and still have 1/2" of wood. It is held together with lots of screws and Gorilla Glue. I made the back piece on it as well, so it is pretty much fully enclosed.

After I had the wood structure built I covered it with copper one section at a time starting with the sides. I attached the 4 separate sheets of copper and added the corner covers and stripes down the front to give it this rustic hand-made look they were after.

 

This shows the protective crate I made for it's safe journey down South

Hi David,
Hope your move is going smoothly. Just wanted to let you know the hood arrived in good condition. Great job with crating it too!

We held it up and it sits on the wall nicely, it should be fairly easy to attach to the wall, and we’ll probably use a bead of caulking or clear silicone where it meets the wall, etc. After we mount it, the mantle will placed underneath the hood (anchored to the wall, and shimmed above the top of the fašade.

This should work out nicely and I think the client will be pleased. I’ll send digital photos when it’s completed.

Matt
