Coloradoans know me as "European Painter" for my murals & faux finishes but not everybody knows that my other passion is wood. I think I got this in my genes after my father, a Polish woodcarver. I'm finding woodcarving challenging yet relaxing. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you find something of interest. Hopefully I can help. In my garage there is a lot of projects that need to be finished one day. In the meantime maybe you can inspire me to start something new :)

Fireplaces are an instant focal point in any room, and one thing that really draws attention is the mantel. With the modern, open-concept designs that so many people are leaning toward these days, full-sized mantels have a bit of competition when it comes to the stylish mantel shelf! These versatile pieces are available in a variety of sizes, carvings, and finishes. From clean and simple lines to more ornate and intricate patterns, we have a shelf to suite every home decor. Mantel shelves are easily mounted to the wall and appear to be "floating" above the hearth. This magical charm is one of the many reasons that our customers are choosing this technique to adorn a newly installed fireplace insert or give an existing feature a facelift. We have also found that many people use mantel shelves as freestanding wall displays for artwork and antiques, while others have paired them with a set of decorative corbels and fashioned unique headboards for their bedrooms! Additionally, fireplace mantel shelves make a terrific heat shield for those who prefer to mount their flat screen TVs over the hearth.

Antique Furniture Restoration During his career, Darek Sokol has dealt with numerous projects having to restore broken parts on pieces of furniture and producing a result in which you could never tell it had been broken beforehand. In that time he has mastered the practice of replicating the ebb and flow of the piece, understanding the history of each piece, how it was made, the design process, and what techniques the craftsman and artisans would use to produce their effects.
