Jerry's Current Project: "Rocky Mountain High" Mantel

"Rocky Mountain High" is an 8 ft. long mantel designed for our customers in Colorado Springs, Colorado. It features Pike's Peak, Garden of the Gods, the "Kissing Camels" formation, aspen and ponderosa pine trees, and many of the animals indigenous to Colorado.

Next in Jerry's Lineup: "Ohio Buckeye" Mantel

Jerry's next customer in the lineup asked for a family of deer to represent their own family carved in the center scene on their mantel, with Jerry's signature oaks leaves and acorns trailing left and right to the ends of the mantel face. Also featured  in the center scene will be an Ohio buckeye tree, our customer's initials carved into a tree, and an owl.
