Over 30 Years of Experience

TheWoodGrainGallery workshop has over 30+ years of woodworking experience. Our goal is 100% customer satisfaction and we want you to feel completely comfortable purchasing our products.  All non-customized or non-personalized orders are never final.

TheWoodGrainGallery recently added a CNC Machine to their full service woodworking shop that allows them to produce machined relief carvings with stunning detail bringing their artwork to life!

TheWoodGrainGallery has two (2) business models.  The first model is wood art. They create all sorts of wood art for the home, office, church or vacation home.  Their second model is to provide wood carvings for the traditional woodworkers and cabinet makers who incorporate them into their product line offering unique and one-of-a-kind pieces to their customers.

Our Backstory

Are you interested in our backstory?  We recently participated in our first Podcast with Bill Griggs CNC Router Tips

We invite you to listen to the podcast by clicking on the Bird Dog Weather Station photo to the left.  You will hear what our passions are, what inspires us, what it takes to produce high quality custom wood carvings, customizing your buying experience and providing personalized customer service.

What is Custom Relief Carving?

To create the beautiful wood art seen in our shop, we use a carving technique called “relief carving.”

Relief carving can be described as “carving pictures in wood”. The process of relief carving involves removing wood from a flat wood panel in such a way that an object appears to rise out of the wood. The figures project only slightly from the background rather than standing freely. Depending on the degree of projection, reliefs may also be classified as high or medium relief.

“Custom Relief Carving” is a personalized service that we provide to our customers.   We offer 3 options.  1). Customize and personalize an existing wood carving design. 2). Design a wood carving based on your submitted idea.  3). Cabinet door and stair riser relief carving services.

How many times have you seen something that you absolutely loved but didn’t buy it because it was the wrong color, wrong size, too expensive or you wanted to add or take away something?

When you find a piece of art in our shop that you would like to customize, fill out a “Request a Quote” form and tell us exactly how you want to personalize the wood carving.  We take that information and create computer pictures (CAD images) of your request and send them back to you.  We continue this conversation until you are completely satisfied with the design changes.  Next, we will create a private listing for you to purchase on Etsy.

Are you one of those creative individuals who have an “idea” that you want to turn into a unique, one-of-a-kind gift?  We love working with our customers and taking their pencil-to-paper ideas and create that special piece of wood art.  We welcome custom design work.
