Woodland Wood Carving

Gift for Him Deer Decor

GIFT FOR HIM DEER DECOR

 

Buying gifts for men, particularly for deer hunters, can be quite the challenge.  By now, most hunter’s have everything under the sun and want every new item that comes out on the market; at least that is my experience! If you have been following our blogs, you will see that we do a tremendous amount of animal and woodland wood carvings.

This is a new listing where we are introducing, to our customer base and to our potentially new customers, the addition of “wood burning’ to our wood carvings.  This deer and duck woodland scene is carved from solid ash wood, stained with early American stain, and finished with a satin sealer.  In the past, we have highlighted our carvings with stain for the light and dark appearance, as well as, distressing the wood carving with paint giving it an antique look.  With wood burning, it gives the staff the opportunity to detail the wood carving beyond any other method we have used!   The wood burning gives this wood carving a very rustic feel to it.

This wood carving will make a wonderful gift for him; birthday, Father’s Day, wood anniversary, and Christmas.  Need a unique rustic wedding gift idea for the best man or groomsman, retirement gift or gift for your boss?  If they love deer, ducks and woodland decor, they will love this!

Staying on top of woodland and hunting, we have to take care of our future hunters, right?  Looking for a great shop to buy woodland baby fabric to create a blanket for your future hunter?  Check out the FabricShoppe

Thank you for taking the time to read today’s blog; we hope to checkout the FabricShope for some great gift ideas for that upcoming “hunter’s” baby shower.  As a side note, I am not affiliated with this shop but they have over 94,000+sales and have been in business since 2008.

Treble Clef Wall Clock

TheWoodGrainGallery created this breathtaking unique wall clock specifically for the music lover! Over the years, we have been blessed to have come in contact with some very special people. This wood carved unique wall clock designed for the music lover is the latest in a long custom request list of wood carvings we have done for this amazing woman and her husband!

In fact, this is our 23rd custom wood carving for this couple! Their passion is custom, one-of-a-kind pieces that are created from things that are very special in their lives or have special meaning to the people who receive these carvings as gifts! It is such a pleasure to work with them and they have given new meaning to “custom wood services” that we provide to all of our customers! These customers have turned into VERY special friends to both my husband and myself who were brought together by our on-line business! Together, we worked closely with our customers on their design. Once we get an approved design, I start mocking it up in our software program. During this next phase, we work together on the CAD rendering images. The customer’s responsibility is to tell me what she likes and more importantly what she wants tweaked or removed. Our policy is to let our customers know that “we work for them.” We will work together on the design until they are 100% confident that the final design meets their needs! Our shop policy and goal is to provide 100% customer satisfaction from the first contact to our shop, through the entire purchasing process and finally to the end product sale. We will take the time to work with you to make you comfortable designing and buying a product unseen!

The next step in this process is picking the wood species, stain preference and finishing style. Sometimes, this can be the most difficult part of the process! We have a chart with the listings of the common woods and stains we work with so that you can get an idea of what your end wood carving may look like. NO two pieces will ever be the same even if you use the same wood species, same stain and finish. Each piece of wood has it’s own character and will absorb the stain differently. After the wood carving process, the exposed wood to be stained is end-grain and depending on the wood will take the stain in various depths. In our shop, we have over 450 listings and we try to cut pieces out of as many different woods we have, stain them in different ways and show unfinished raw wood, satin, semi-gloss and gloss polyurethane pieces so that you can get some idea of the finished look. All of our wood carving are carved from SOLID wood…PERIOD!

The final step is to package your wood carving in such a manner that it will arrive safely and in ONE piece! We take this part of the process very seriously as shipping of fine art can be a challenge! We pride ourselves on shipping out on the promised date or SOONER, if possible.
Finally, we want you as a repeat customer. After your first sale, you will get a thank you card with your personal shop coupon for a life-time 10% discount on single orders. It’s our way of thanking you for your business. In addition, we have developed what we call BUNDLE YOUR PURCHASES AND SAVE SHOP COUPONS; we offer 10%, 15%, 20% and 25% discount codes.
