Jerry has finished "Hide and Seek" mantel for our customer in Michigan. Photos of the carving process are posted on this page! Hi John and Holli!

The design features wildlife, a cabin, and a lake flowing in a continuous scene across the face of the mantel.

Our customer requested that several carved elements be hidden in the design for fun.

Design and carving progress photos are posted below. Photos of the finished mantel are posted on Page 2.
