KREMMLING – Woodcarver and craftsman Mark Mahorney has announced the opening of his new store at 111 Park Ave., Kremmling: woodZwayz features woodcarvings and hand-crafted products from Mahorney and other local artisans.

“I started this business about five years ago carving beetle-killed trees at private residences,” Mahorney said. “The opportunity to have a storefront that I could use as a shop and studio presented itself, and I saw it as the next phase of the business.”

Mahorney’s work can be seen adorning homes throughout Summit and Grand counties. Most recently, he completed a 20-foot tall totem in Blue River that features Colorado’s native wildlife.

Like the tree carvings, most of the products in the new store were crafted from beetle-killed, standing dead, and reclaimed wood.

In addition to free-standing carvings like bears, woodZwayz offers higher-end carvings, such as relief carved mantles and doors, ranch gateways, and personalized carving on home furnishings. Mahorney also does custom sign work.

“I can do custom carving on existing pieces, or create something original. We have log furniture, original artwork, frames, and other rustic wares. We’ve already found so many great artisans from the surrounding area, and we’re looking forward meeting more.”

WoodZwayz will host a grand opening on Saturday, Sept. 3. Guests are welcome to stop by the store all weekend. For a preview of what to expect, and to see Mahorney’s portfolio, visit http://www.woodzwayz.com.
