"Words of thanks don't do justice to the work you performed on making the door for our home. It's simply stunning! Everybody who comes by has to stand and just look for a while before they come in. Absolutely a one of a kind product by a master craftsman and artist! Thank you very much. We will enjoy your work for many years to come.

"Your artwork was successfully shipped to our office today. Eric and I were both pretty excited to view the new addition to our home. We unscrewed all of the screws on the crate and slowly lifted the wood covering. Wow! I truly believe we could not have found a more creative artist with your expertise anywhere in the wood design profession. You have definitely left your mark for everyone to enjoy when they visit our home."

"Our door arrived and it is beautiful. Your packing was thorough. Everything was still in place. We have not removed anything from the boxes yet and won't until we are ready to hang the door. But we peek in every so often, to admire the carving and the beautiful wood. Thank you for all your hard work and for sharing your talent with us. We are thrilled with our door."
