About

Hello,

My name is Stephanie Tamras and my dad is a carpenter who is passionate about American history. 

He always tells me that he loved seeing me grow up, well I also had the pleasure of seeing him develop into the man he is today.  He is an immigrant but deep in his heart, he's a true American.  A man who has chosen a trade that he loves with a focus to provide for his family coupled with a love for this country and its amazing history,  THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.  Go ahead, ask him anything about any president...he will tell you their history, important dates, their legacy and much more.  To put it simply, he loves this country.

The Presidents project is our way to thank the country that I had the honor to be born in and the pleasure he had the chance to live in and become the man he is today. 

Our project is a result of the happiness that generated in a family where members are born in three different continents with different cultures. Yet, my family became what we proudly call Americans. 

All 44 men that history put in charge of this amazing land deserve to be remembered with both achievements and failures.  As long as we don't forget our history, we will know how to build our future.

My dad lived the first 15 years of his life in under one of the most strict communist regimes. 

I was born in this country, but my dad was the one who showed me how precious the work of our Founding Fathers was and what THE CONSTITUTION really means. For that reason, I have decided to put all of my skills and knowledge to manage this project with him.

With your help, we want to create a impressive carving of Former President Barack H. Obama and donate it to The Barack Obama Presidential Center in Chicago, Illinois. We will not stop there, we will look for any opportunity to keep history alive through our work.

    One carving of any president

    This carving is made on 1.75" thick bass wood. The frame is made of sapele mahogany, an exotic species from Central Africa. We decided to stain the carving with a very dark stain to hide the grain of the wood.

    The height is 11.25", the width is 9.25" . We can work on much larger pieces if needed, up to 5 feet by 10 feet and up to 5" deep.

    The entire piece is sprayed with satin lacquer finish, a very good quality lacquer that we use for our cabinet and furniture projects.
