Excellent Condition

I wanted to let you know
our carving arrived today (7/21/15). The product made it to our door in excellent
condition thanks to your very substantial packaging. We are extremely pleased
with the quality of the carving. The carving will add a most attractive touch
to our new front entry door and blend well with the other trim mouldings added during
our remodeling project.

Thank you for the
excellent service and product!

Hi Joe,

little over 2
years ago. I remember saying than that I would send you a

years to get this done. Well
here is the picture.

The columns look amazing!!! Thanks to

I wanted to
thank you and Heartwood Carving for the awesome job you
did.  From start to finish, the process to purchase these
corner blocks was very easy and to put it another way, it
was “Outstanding.”

Thank you.

Very impressed with your mouldings!

I wanted to let you know that we got the mouldings and we are very
impressed. 100% of the stock was usable, and the sanding quality was
good enough that we only had to do very minor hand work. Thanks for
taking the time and care to color match the stock you
used. We will certainly be ordering from you again, and several people
have inquired about where we got the product -- I have provided your
info to them.

With much appreciation,

-P McCarthy.

Restoration Rave

Image Restoration Rave I have recently had the pleasure of working with Mr. Martin Grant. the project consisted of creating ornate carved mahogany newel posts for two staircases in a Victorian style residence. It was my wish to give Martin some historic photos of what I was conceptually looking for, along with some design parameteres, and see what he could come up with.

I am pleased to say that my expectations were greatly exceeded, as were those of my clients. Martin successfully captured the character and level of detail I was looking for. I very much look forward to working with him again.
