Love getting photos from our happy customers!

Check out this sign our artisans completed last week.... After the sign was carved, the customer asked that we fill in the depressed area with Thin Set due to the high traffic on where it was to be laid. So happy with how it turned out!  Often used for commercial projects like businesss signage, parks and municipalities, a custom carved sign is a welcoming sight!

Using Natural Thin Veneer for Interior Transformations!

Many people have big aspirations on home renovation projects.  Taking a traditional room, which some people would call boring, and turning that space into a focal point of the home, is not as difficult as you may think.

For instance, take a look at thie BEFORE picture.  This is a standard, run-of-the-mill dining room.  The majority of the room was a neutral taupe color, and the customer tried to add some pizzazz by using a bold burgandy paint on one wall.  You may not believe it, but this space had HUGE potentional... just think outside the box!
