Custom Made Business Signs Northside Service Lansing Michigan

NORTHSIDE SERVICE

24-Hour Towing & Road Service

Northside Service offers fast 24-hour Towing Service 7 days a week in addition to their full-service auto repair and preventive maintenance center. This was an exciting project to work on. We were approached by one of the company’s employees who wanted us to create a business sign for the owner’s office as a special gift.

As we worked with the employee, we began putting the design together. The design needed to be an extension of their business model. We began the design process by placing the tow truck in a strong position within the sign to be the focal point of the wall hanging. Next, we placed a “stone design” as the background to solidify the design into a rustic style wood carving. We took the provided “engraved words”‘ for the sign and placed them in such a way to balance the final design. We finished the project by creating a simple frame. The final sign was carved out of 1-inch solid cherry wood, stained with cherry. We pooled the cherry stain into the engraved words to create this stunning custom business indoor sign for our customer. Finally, we sealed the 3D wood carving with a polyurethane gloss finish. We attached the saw-tooth picture hanging hardware so it would be ready for immediate hanging.

We will fully customize your Business Sign with your Family Name, Company Logo in our full service woodworking shop. Customize it with your choice of wood species, stain or no stain preference, finish, size and budget; indoor or outdoor signs available.

Dog Groomer Gifts Etsy Pet Groomer Gifts Ideas

Dog Groomer Gifts

As an avid dog lover with a history of breeding border collies in the past, now with a passion of adopting rescue animals, there are 2 very important groups of professionals that I depend on to keep our animals healthy and clean; veterinarians and pet groomers!

Today, I’m going to focus on the custom gift I created for our dog groomer; Beth’s K-9 Care. Beth has been taking care of our border collies and rescue dogs for several years. Beth is by far the best groomer I’ve had the pleasure of bringing my dogs too! She is professional, reliable and caring. I adopt rescue dogs and Beth has the compassion and understanding necessary to groom my rescue dogs!

I want to share with you the process of creating a custom wood carving from the birth of the idea to the finished product. I want to show you how easy it is to take your idea and turn it into that unique one-of-a-kind gift that you will be excited to give and experience what I call “the WOW effect.” My customers contact me quite often and say, “the pictures of the finished product you sent me were beautiful but I was amazed how the detailed carving brought my project to life!”

I started this project by making a list of items that described Beth. She lives in the country with pine trees, has 2 dogs; Springer Spaniel and Golden Retriever. Her grooming facility is a separate building located on her property, which is very rustic.

Next, I pulled the model components from my extensive library; pine cone frame, pine trees, building front that looked a lot like her grooming building, added the dog dish, Golden Retriever and Springer Spaniel and found some grass. There was a place on the front of the building to put her shop name, which was the perfect personal touch I was looking for! The last decision was to decide on the wood species and stain finish. I ended up using solid birch wood and stained it with Honey giving it that rich rustic finish I was looking for! On the back, I placed my personal “thank you” for taking such great care of our dogs! It was a successful piece because she was almost speechless when she received. She tried again to thank me by calling me later and she had difficultly expressing how much she loved it because she was still caught in “the WOW effect.”

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.

Wood Letters for Walls with Upcycled Pallet Wood Frame

Vintage Letter H with ECO friendly pallet wood frame

The life-cycle is a journey unto itself! I’ve lived long enough to see the styles of my younger years become the “new.” Do you have something in your attic that you just couldn’t throw away only to find out it’s worth money now? Far out!! How about the torn jeans, over-sized sweatshirts that you only wore cleaning out the garage or working in the garden would become the “norm” dress code! Dream on! You know the saying, “One Person’s Junk is Another Person’s Treasure.” This generation has taken that saying and took it to an entirely new level. It’s called “Upcycling” and it’s everywhere!

As an entrepreneur, I decided to take advantage of this “exciting trend.” The first problem I had was to locate pallet wood. At first, I thought this was going to be an easy task, wrong. Since this trend is so popular, it became a “hunt” to find the pallet wood I wanted to use for my project….just like the 3 bears; not too old, not too new but just right! Solid! I got lucky and found a supplier just up the road from me; problem one solved.

My next challenge was to find the right graphics for my wood letters that would be engraved into my wood and placed into the pallet wood frame. I found this “vintage alphabet” and immediately fell in love with it. Outta sight!

After all that research and work, we are proud to introduce our Pallet Framed Vintage Wood Letter Alphabet Wall Decor! This particular listing features solid oak wood that is engraved with a Vintage Letter H placed inside the pallet wood frame. We painted the Letter H with black paint and sealed the oak wood with polyurethane. We did a light sand on the pallet frame but basically left it unfinished. The saw-tooth hanging hardware is attached for immediate display of your new Upcycled Wall Art!

You can purchase this Vintage Wood Letter H with Pallet Frame at TheWoodGrainGallery Etsy Shop. We have the entire Vintage Alphabet; A-Z and we have 11 standard paint colors to choose from; Black, Blue, Brown, Green, Gray, Orange, Pink, Purple, Red, White and Yellow.

Here are a few example of the Vintage Letters already listed in TheWoodGrainGallery Etsy Shop.

Another service we provide is modifying an existing product. You’re not stuck with this design. Let’s say you like the engraved vintage letters but you want a different frame. No problem! You can contact us with any questions you may have regarding your design change and we are more than happy to answer them quickly. In addition, you can request a quote if your design request require changes in the original design; different frame or size. Let your imagination run wild and we look forward to working with you to create that unique one-of-a-kind wood letter wall decor!
