Pictures on Wood

 

Pictures on wood is one of the hottest trends in the personalized gift-giving marketplace.  We are so excited to be able to share with you that we now have the ability to convert a picture into a wood carving.  Imagine a wood carving hanging on your wall of your parents, wedding photos, retirement photos, pet photos, sport photos of your children, hunting photos, vacation photos, musicians with their instrument….and the possibilities are endless.

Pictures on wood is a very specialized product line, and we work very closely with our customers and the artist who creates the end carving file for us, to complete your amazing wood carving.  We have shared 3 options thus far; a picture of a retired military leader, a picture of a grandmother, and today, a picture of a dog.  It all begins with a photo.

Pictures on wood is a simple process.  You contact us directly through our contact form below.  Attach your photo/picture, give us the size of the wood carving, and we will take it from there.  We will forward your photo to our artist who will convert the image to a carving model.  The carving file will belong to YOU so that if you wanted to have another one carved, the cost would only include my work.  You can duplicate it or we can add a different frame….and customize it for the future.

Pictures on wood is a very unique, one-of-a-kind gift!!  I am sure you have a lot of questions, and below you can fill out the contact form, and we will respond to your questions within 24 hours.  The usual turnaround time is 2-3 weeks or longer during peak holiday seasons, and that will depend on both of our schedules. The estimated delivery time will be included in the quote. As with all of our other custom orders, you will be able to select your solid wood, stain preference, as well as the finish.  We have a lot of examples of our work that we can share with you so that you can get a better idea of our abilities. We would love the opportunity to work for you.  Thank you for taking the time to read our blog!

Wolf Bear Cabin Decor Wood Carving 

 

Are you looking for a unique, wolves fighting a bear in the woods wood carving that you can display on your Cabin Wall?  This is a new listing in our shop and we are very excited about introducing this piece just in time for the fall hunting season and upcoming gift giving opportunities such as birthdays, rustic wedding gifts, bear hunter gifts, wolf lover’s, and of course, the upcoming Christmas season.

I showed this piece to my brother-in-law who is an avid hunter.  The minute he saw this wood carving, his eyes bugged out and his jaw dropped.  He could not get over how realistic this wood carving was.  As he had it in his hands, he meticulously looked at and touched every inch of this wood carving.  In fact, when my visit with him was over (he had just undergone surgery), I could hardly get it out of his hands!! To me, that told me that we had carved a wolf bear wall hanging that was going to be very popular.

This particular piece is 13 x 11 inches in size, carved from cherry wood, stained with walnut (highlighting really makes the image come to life) and sealed with a satin finish.  The saw-tooth hanger is already attached on the back for convenient hanging.

We will be introducing new wood carvings similar to this type of theme for the hunters who have just about everything!!  If you have any questions or comments about this piece, you can always fill out the contact sheet below.  We would love to carve this magnificent piece for you.

Totem Pole Spirit Animal Wood Carving

Personalized Spirit Animal Totem Pole Wood Carving

 

Are you into “power animals” or “spirit animal” decor?  We were approached by a customer to create a family heirloom that represented the power animals of the family tree. This was such an exciting project to be a part of.  The process was quite simple.  She gave me the power animals and the placement order on the totem pole; then we started designing the wood carving.  We worked together for about a week or so, sharing images and changing things around on the design until she was 100% satisfied with the final design. Since this totem pole is only a 2.5 dimension wood carving; meaning that the back is flat, she needed to decide if she wanted it hanging on the wall or something that could be displayed on an office desk.  She decided on the latter.  We incorporated a piece of walnut live edge slab to create the stand for the totem pole to adhere to that accentuated the wood/stain combination she had chosen for this piece.  It turned out absolutely magnificent!

If you are interested in totem pole wood carved art or spirit/power animal wood carvings for your wall, we would be happy to work with you to make your vision a dream.  Please fill out the contact form below to get started.  We love custom orders!  What can we create for you?

Michigan Moose Association

Loyal Order of Moose & Women of the Moose

Michigan Moose Association Website is an amazing site for those “moose lovers” in Michigan.  Like most moose organizations, their Website is filled with everything the moose hunter is looking for.  The MMA is having their annual 2017 Michigan Moose Association Convention this year in Kewaiden, Saulte Saint Marie, Michigan from August 10-13, 2017 and you can register on-line.  If you are from Michigan, I would highly recommend visiting their Website.

Do you love motorcycles and moose?  They have the “Moose Riders” club bringing the best of both worlds.  As I kept reading, the MAA have thousands of loyal men and women who support the “Children at Mooseheart” as well as the senior members at “moosehaven;” I’m totally impressed with the outreach in supporting their local community.

Ok, I might be dating myself, but I personally love to bowl!!  The MAA has a Men’s Bowling Tournament that just ended.  I can just feel the excitement of the “moose people” bowling together!  Somehow beer and bowling are such a great combination and their alley has an amazing sign with a “moose” inside a yellow road sign with a second sign reading, Moose Alley.

The best part of the organization is the Michigan Moose Youth Awareness Program!  In this day and age of cell phones, we have a lost generation who are taught about hunting, animals, nature and the beauty of this earth.  This is such a great opportunity for your boys and girls to learn to love the outdoors, learn about their environment and respect it and enjoy the life of hunting!!

I hope that my followers in Michigan will take the time to visit this amazing Website and share it freely!  The followers who live in other states, I encourage you to research for state for your local Moose Association so that you can take full advantage of their programs in your state.

As moose hunters, we are always looking for unique moose decor for our man/woman cave, hunting cabin or in our garage.  TheWoodGrainGallery Etsy Shop is the place where you can go for the most unique, wood carved (solid wood) gifts for your “moose decor.” This moose welcome sign is a perfect example of a custom wood carving that makes the perfect gift for all types of gift-giving occasions or “just because.”  We offer many different sizes to fit most budgets.  This is a MADE TO ORDER wood carving that gives you the freedom to pick the wood species, stain or no stain preference, choice of finish sealer, and color of the welcome engraving.  Ok, let’s say, instead of a welcome sign, you want something else engraved; no problem.  You can just contact us with your message; it could be name, Est. Date, special message or saying….just to name a few.  In some cases, at no extra charge, we have created a 2 sided sign that can be flipped to fit the occasion!  We love custom orders.  We use Etsy as our e-commerce because Etsy is dedicated to protecting the buyer and if you’re not 100% satisfied with your purchase, Etsy will step in to make sure you are taken care of.  As a new customer to our shop, I encourage you to read some of our 231 positive 5 star reviews to learn about our company, our values and our customer service.  We would love the opportunity to work for you.  I hope you found this article helpful!
