dream wooden sign


$20.00
this dream wooden sign is made from 2 layers reclaimed wood that i found in my house. The paint is original showing wear and cracks and loss.(because of the unknown age of the original paint it is sealed it with polyurethane.)

This is made from reclaimed cedar siding. being siding it is triangle shaped. I flipped the upper layer.. so the letters are slanted the opposite direction so will be square when hung. confused? me too.. look at the pictures.

the backing board has dents, scratches. paint int the voids.
It's beautiful, no faux finish..not distressed. It's Just the way i found it. Perfect.


It Measures 17 3/3" long x 5 14"
the backing board is for the same piece of wood and has paint on the back. Sawtooth hanger on the back.ready to hang.

t-rex wooden dinosaur toy


$8.00
this cute little tyrannosaurus rex toy is made from 3/4" maple with birch hardware. The arms are movable. After letting my kid play with it i realized that the tail makes a great handle.
My 3 year old took it right away grabbed the tail and tipped it down and used the mouth to pic up a toy plate and rolled it around holding the plate. "look dad, he can help do the dishes".
It measures 5" high x 4" wide (with arms out) x 1.75 thick (including wheel thickness)

Personalized wooden child name sign


$25.00
These wood name signs would be perfect for a nursery or a kids room. These are made to order.. Great for parents like me who have children with unique or uncommon names.
These are 10" long. The height will differ with the amount of letters.
I will gladly send a proof (a picture of the pattern) if you would like to see what it will look like before you order.

► pick a color (if i do not have the color I'll get it)
If you would like glitter on top please tell me (no extra charge)
► decide if you would like a ribbon hanger (solid white or black)
If no ribbon a hanger will be put on the back.

Please note because these are made after you order it will take a week (probably less) before they will be mailed. After the pattern is made..the name is cut from 1/4" Baltic birch plywood. It's sanded and several coats of primer is applied. Then the final color is sprayed or sponged on. After that glitter or a clear finish is applied.
It takes time for the paint to dry. Feel free to convo me with questions.

Custom handmade john deere tractor wooden wall art


$30.00
This fretwork John Deer tractor cutting is handmade on a scroll saw(no laser or cnc machine is ever used in my work). the cutting is 8"X10" and is backed with construction paper. It come in a 8"x10" frame(frame may differ from picture and i do not use glass in the frames).
I have been using a scroll saw for over 20 years (started when i was 12).
After transferring the pattern to the wood.. Holes are drilled and the pattern is cut out with my scroll saw. Basically it is a stencil, one piece of wood with voids cut into it. It is a laborious and time consuming process but I feel that it is worth it for the outcome. Because it’s hand made everyone is unique.
If you do not like the 8"x10" frame I would suggest matting and framing this cutting in a 11"x14" frame behind glass, if you want a more elegant look.
you can find a 11"x14" frame at wal-mart for around $10. It is not offered it in the larger frame because I want to keep the shipping costs down and would hate for you to get a package full of broken glass. any questions? feel free to ask
