Wedding Bride And Groom Toasting Flutes - Walnut Stems
by Denise Apr 07th 2013
Wedding Bride and Groom Toasting flutes for my daughter and soon-to-be son. Their wedding is in September 2013, she wanted something unique that no else would have. So when I showed her the picture, she said those were the ones for them. The whole experience from beginning to end was great. Gave them as a birthday present to her fiancee and he loved them! Pure professionalism and quality! Would recommend "The Wooden Quill, Lic" to everyone interested in what he creates...Thank you, Mike

Even though I was not certain as to what I wanted from Mike, he showed me the options and guided me through the woodworking process. Mike sent me pictures of the project's progress, was very communicative, finished on time, and shipped the final product securely. The final outcome exceeded my expectations and made my friends (recipients of Mike's work) very happy. I would work with Mike again and recommend him to friends.

Always following up on progress. The flutes were beautiful and unusual. I would definitely use you again for other similay projects.
