Custom Wood Carved Eagle for Home Depot

Wood Carved Eagle with US Flag

It’s springtime and there is no better place to get what you need for your spring cleanup and gardening needs than your local Home Depot.  It seems like there is one around every corner no matter where you live.  Besides the Home Depot’s amazing selection of items in their stores, this company does a great job in recognizing stellar employees. In fact, TheWoodGrainGallery was commissioned to carve the keystone piece of their amazing Employee Recognition Board for their new store in Pittston, Pennsylvania; American Bald Eagle with the United States Flag flying in the background.  As you can see from the photo sent to us of the finished project; the recognition board is classy and perfect for honoring their outstanding employees!  It was an honor to work for the Home Depot on this project.

Hopefully, as you are reading this blog entry, admiring the photo and story behind this project,and the gears are turning in your head.  How can I utilize TheWoodGrainGallery as a vendor for next up upcoming project?  We work well with commercial contractors and have over 35+ years of woodworking experience.  Before my husband retired, his professional career was engineering giving TheWoodGrainGallery the best of both worlds to offer it’s clients.

 

 

Custom Wood Carved Deer Camp Sign

It’s called BUCKMASTERS; have you heard of it?  It’s a site filled with anything and everything for the deer hunter enthusiasts!  If you have the time, it well worth the time to browse around!  As a side note, I am NOT affiliated with this website in any way; just passing along a great site I found during my Internet searches that I thought you might find interesting.

So…..where do you go to find a “custom 3D wood carved deer camp sign?  Our customer found TheWoodGrainGallery Etsy Shop and starting looking for a custom deer camp sign. She found 3 wood carvings that were carved in the shape of a hallowed out log. She loved that for the frame for her custom deer camp sign. She contacted me directly regarding these listings and inquired if she could use the “log frame” for her deer camp sign but wanted to add a rifle, a standing deer and a male and female cardinals. The name of their camp is called the “Red Bird Deer Camp”; her idea was brilliant and we engraved the name of her camp into the hallowed out log frame.

This sign is carved from solid birch, stained with golden oak, red paint for the cardinals and black paint for the sign engraving. We applied a gloss polyurethane finish to complete the carving.  The hanging hardware was attached for immediate hanging.

TheWoodGrainGallery combines traditional sign engraving and add the 3D wood carving technique to create this unique, one-of-a-kind, deer camp sign.

In addition, you can see the stunning detail of the deer carving! Each wood carving undergoes a 3-step process. First, we prepare the wood for carving, carve the sign, and then we hand sand the entire part before applying the stain, paint and gloss finish. The final step is to mount and balance the wall hanging saw-tooth picture hanger so your sign will hang level.

Although CNC machines can cut very fast, we slow down the cutting process to avoid chipping and to capture the highest level of detail in all of our wood carving artwork. We want you to feel totally comfortable with your purchase and we take great pride in our work and our goal is 100% customer satisfaction. We encourage all of our potential customers to take some time and read TheWoodGrainGallery’s reviews.

Custom Wood Carved Deer Camp Sign

Wood Carved Cabinet Doors

This solid oak Deer Camp Kitchen Cabinet was delivered to our shop. We worked closely with the owner to pick the perfect relief carvings that represent the deer cabin, the scenery and method of hunting. We were commissioned to carve 4 cabinet door panels and one cabinet drawer. Our customer wanted a different scene for each section.

The left upper panel is a deer scene with cabin and woods in the background. This particular carving was a dish (sunken) design in an oval shape centered in the cabinet door. The upper right upper panel is a buck standing in front of a waterfall in the woods.

The drawer features several stunning deer in the wood scene that expands the entire length of the 2 drawers.  It’s a continuous scene that is split between the 2 drawers in the kitchen cabinet. The deer antler handles gave the finishing touch to this part of the cabinet! The lower left cabinet door reveals a round dished relief carving of a bow hunter! It faces the bear head carved into the right lower cabinet door. The cabinet was stained with Early American stain and sealed with a semi-gloss polyurethane finish. The owner purchased custom ordered door knobs to fit the theme. This was such an exciting piece to work on.
