Corbels are more massive versions of brackets. They may
be used anywhere that a bracket can be used, except where
a delicate look is required. Because of their extra thickness,
they are often used in applications requiring strength,
such as in supporting a mantel shelf. They may also be placed
in the corners of an entrance opening to create a distinguished,
elegant look. Inside the home, they may be placed in the
corners of cased door openings to add a subtle touch of
charm. Build your own fireplace mantle, or we can do it for you.
Our corbels may be used in kitchens for supporting granite
or marble island tops and counters. Crown molding effects
may be added to top portion of those corbels not shown with
Empire Woodworks Victorian Gingerbread corbels are built
from laminations of 3/4" solid woods, using a waterproof
glue. All surfaces are carefully sanded and ready for your
staining or painting.
