This design was inspired by a Weeping Beech tree growing near the home.

We worked on this design for many weeks before arriving at this concept.  The intent is to capture the character of the Weeping Beech moving in the breeze.

Close up detail of the carving.  The spot of color provides a focus point.

 Another close up shows the depth and detail in Tom's carving.  The carving should stand up to close scrutiny.

These doors are a brilliant way to incorperate art into architecture. The facade of a home adds tremendous real estate value, these doors are a fantastic application re staging the exterior of one's home--Talk about curb appeal!

I was privileged to see this door and its mate before Tom delivered them to his customer. I am always very impressed by Tom's ability to incorporate so much detail in his carvings. The tree on this door is very realistic and extremely well executed.
