Special Picks


"Survival" Mantel

"Survival" mantel was designed and carved by Jerry for our customer in Houston, TX, who added a plexiglass top to the installed mantel, so that the light would shine down through the top of the wood carving into the "water."

"Kootenay Lake" Mantel

This custom mantel was designed and carved by Jerry for our customer in British Columbia, Canada, who asked for river otters and a a standing blue heron with its head dipping into the "water." The customer installed a plexiglass shelf between the mantel top and and the body of the heron for a view down into the carving.
