The wood ducks very appearance is sharp, detailed and colorful. It was created with a tremendous amount of thought. As I pondered the size and scale and lines of the wood duck I realized this would represent our pool company perfectly Being lovers of the outdoors and being an outdoor living building company it just seamed right. We fused the wood duck and the antique plainer together to symbolize our pride in craftsmanship and attention to detail. We take exceptional care in our pool construction and outdoor living builds.

Truth be told I collected duck decoys and had a collection of six hand-carved small decoys, They where all beautiful but the wood duck was my favorite, It came in a nice wooden box and my daughter at the time was 3 or 4 was attracted to them as well. She played with them on my office floor and regularly. One day I noticed that 5 of the duck decoys all had their beaks broken from playing with them, all but the wood duck.
