Hi all,

As the title suggests, I am looking for ideas as to how to safely install a mantel over a wall-side (not corner, nor alcove) woodstove.

Open to photos and advice! Thank you! :)

Clearances need to be honored. If they are close a mantel heat shield may be required or a non-combustible mantel installed.

Clearances should be mentioned in the manual of.your stove.
