My order arrived within extremely fast, within a couple of days. I ordered two 14 inch lion corbels. The wood is solid and heavy and the corbels are a lot larger than I thought they'd be, which is great. I stained them a cherry-like color using "Old Masters" brand stain, then put 2 coats of semi-gloss polyurethane. They are ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL! The craftsmanship of the carving is exquisite.
