Wood Art

Wooden "cut-out" life-size custom portraits of your child.  "Images" that are cut-out for all to see and enjoy - the cut-outs can be ornamental, such as angels ~ to adorn your lawn during the holidays, or a portrait of you or your loved one.

What is required of you?  We need a clear photo (or several) that we can verify will make for a visually stunning piece of wood art and a height measurement!  Soon you will be on your way to a unique "talk of the town" wood art design!  This clear photo led to the creation of this piece of wood art that stands in front of a golf store.

Wood Art takes many forms!  One of our clients chose a cut out for a table top in lieu of spending money on a piece of marble!  And yet another chose a favorite flower, enlarged and 'cut-out' for a room divider.  All of this is wood art and we love to stretch our imaginations to find many avenues of expression!Quality Materials.  A high grade 3/8" to 1/4" plywood is used on our projects.  It is first sanded and then sealed for protection  as well as to allow the wood to receive the paint well.  After the cut-out is painted, coats of varnish will thoroughly cover it to ensure it will remain weatherproof.

Wood Art is perfect for advertising a business or to enjoy a stage of your child or grandchild's life for seasons to come.

Advertise your Business in a NEW, creative, and eye-catching way!  Picture yourself or a member of your family posing outside of your business establishment, perhaps holding something you sell ~ as if they are showing it to everyone!  This is what Wood Art can provide ~ a permanent, wooden advertisement that will draw interest in your business while bringing a smile to your customer's face!
Wood Art makes for a perfect venue to advertise a business product in a creative, yet eye-catching way!

TrompeL'oeil ~ the art of 'fooling the eye' ~ you will see this technique in various areas of our work - from wood art to murals.  Its fun to have someone take that 'second look' to see if it is really REAL or not!
