Dear HAL Woodworking,

Many,many thanks for taking our order.The base arrived in time for us to mount the bronze and plaques! I’ll send a photo next week of the finished product. Your level of quality woodwork is hard to come by and really makes our perpetual trophy a heritage piece!!

Dear HAL Woodworking,

I recieved the base and it is perfect. It cost me less than half what my local trophy store wanted (even factoring in shipping) and was twice as nice. Thanks for the great service!

~ John


The trophy bases looked WONDERFUL and everyone commented on how regal they looked! The artist was extremely happy with how the sculptures looked atop the bases. We truly could not have imagined anything more perfect for the event.

Thanks again so much for what you and Bev did for us. We are so grateful.

I arrived back home yesterday after my vacation and found the box with my order. I was so pleased when I opened it! The bases are stunning, you do quality work. I will be certain to use you again when I get an order to do trophies. Hopefully, this order will become an annual event. Thank you for your most prompt and beautifully executed woodworking.

It’s perfect! The stand is even more beautiful in person than I expected, and the quality of your work is outstanding. It was an absolute pleasure to do business with you, from start to finish.
