Mantle mounting...

Mantle mounting...  I spent most of this weekend (when I wasn't goofing off) working on mounting our new mantle to the living room wall.  This is a job that would have been (much) easier in a properly-equipped wood shop – but which can still be done in a garage with just hand tools.  I used saw horses and clamps to keep everything in the right place, and then a circular saw, a jig saw, and a drill.  Today I hope to actually start attaching this to the wall...
