This is a crest I carved for my brother and I. The Z. B. stands for “ZONGKER BROTHERS” It’s mounted on a wall in are office. This was my 15th carving, dated 10-16-2001, time really doe’s fly. It’s already 7 1/2 years old. It’s carved out of Basswood & Ebony. The Z & B letters are mortised in 3/8” of a inch and glued in. The size is 3” thick x 12” wide x 18” tall. Thanks for looking.

Great looking crest. And anyone walking into your office can see the quality hanging on the wall.

That is a cool coat of arms. I like how the flowing leaves and vines give it motion. I like the carving tools and mallets carved into the piece. As always your workmanship is amazing. You have definitely mastered this medium. Thanks for sharing this with us.

Dennis, this is another one of your “jaw-dropping” pieces. I bet you get a lot of comments from your customers too. Man that is sweeet.

Thanks for showing it to us.
