There are two kinds of artists, one uses their skills, tools, talent, knowledge and their style to create a piece from their own ideas, visions, or dreams, and then presents the piece to the world. ;

;

The other, along with being able to create a piece from their own ideas, visions and dreams, can also use their skills, tools, talent, knowledge, and add a touch of their own style to make someone else's ideas, visions and dreams into an 2 or 3 dimensional reality, thus creating a very special custom made piece or pieces."

Custom Made Order Information
;

;

Custom & special made orders are scheduled and with my current demand for orders, it will be approximately 4 - 5 weeks from the date the down payment {retainer} on the order is made, before I will be able to start making the piece/pieces. ;

;

For choosing color, I can e-mail JEPG images of the different species of wood available, velvet, stained glass, stain colors, etceteras. ;

;

For choosing the font style for engraving, I can e-mail a Microsoft Word document featuring them. ;

;

If you desire, I can e-mail JEPG images of the piece before I actually ship it. A very large majority of my clients prefer to wait and see it for the first time in real life when they open the package. ;

;

An e-mail is sent with the Federal Express 3 day service tracking number featured in it when the order ships. ;

All quotes include, insured shipping and handling to you. My standard shipping method is Federal Express 3-Day Service.

All quotes also include 3 finish coats of clear marine grade polyurethane spar varnish that is impervious to most liquids including body oils and some mild acids. ;
