This mantel was commissioned for our customer's lovely home in Northwestern Iowa.  It is carved in basswood with an oak shelf and trim and features morning glories carved across the face of the mantel and the initial "V" as a center focal point.  After approving Jerry's design our customer wrote, "The drawings show even more detail and carving than I had hoped for, and I am just delighted with the intricacy of the details."  Their beautiful home is showcased with morning glories in stained glass and their desire was to continue the theme on the new mantel.

They requested that their mantel be delivered in person, so we traveled to their home and had a wonderful time with new dear friends Arnie and Ardene.  Ardene wrote later, "We have had a little parade of 'lookers' here and the reaction is unanimous that the mantel is truly wonderful.  No one can understand how the petals, leaves, stems, and vines look like individual works of art."  This mantel was completed in March 2005.  Hi Arnie and Ardene!
