Hi, Greg.

I’m looking at those pictures on my phone, so it’s hard to estimate. But I think you are running afoul the building codes by building with combustible materials too close to the fireplace box and projecting too far out from the wall.
1A) How far is it from the sides of the fireplace box to the wood on the sides?
1B) And how far out from the face does the wood project?
And...
2A) How far is it from the top of the fireplace box to the wood above?
2B) And how far out from the face does the wood project?
