  • TH (Louisville, KY)

    • The board just came.  Oh my, it is so beautiful.  I love it.  The overall size and shape are perfect.  Your wood selections are so pretty and the monogram is wonderful.  It is the perfect size/proportion on the board and I like the placement of it.  The entrie thing could not be any better.  I think the wedding couple will really like their new board - although knowing my friend, she won't want to cut anything on it because it is so beautiful! - (2017).

  • Frank & Karen  (Eagle, ID)

    • This piece is absolutely perfect for what we wanted and needed and has quickly become one of our most prized possessions.  We have a very large ottoman (4ft x 4ft) and we needed something large enough to play board games on, serve food on, etc.  The “table top” Mark crafted for us is 3ft x 3ft and absolutely gorgeous!  The craftsmanship in his work is amazing.  All the more impressive as the sheer size of this board made it remarkably difficult to build.  Moreover, I couldn’t be more pleased with Mark’s customer service and customer focus!   He was very patient with me in designing this piece and worked with me offering different wood types, design patterns and wood colors to ensure it would meet my every expectation.   I couldn’t be happier and I would recommend Claw’s Exotic Wood Designs to anyone interested in a top quality, rare wood, product such as ours.  This is truly a show-piece that demands attention!  Thank You, Mark!! - (2017).

  • Ashlie  (Amarillo, TX)

    • I was interested in a medium size cutting board and when I saw the incredible, high quality designs and products of Claws Designs, I knew I had to purchase one.  After receiving my cutting board, I was absolutely elated and awestruck.  What an item of artistic beauty and quality.  Thanks Mark for such a fantastic product! - (2016).

  • Kenneth  (Grand Rapids, MI)

    • Regarding 39th anniversary gift... Excellent!  Just what the demanding client wanted.  Twenty minutes after it arrived, it was covered with knives, chopped nuts, sliced apples, etc.  Thank you! - (2016).
