This Heart is a Myrtle wood wall hanging 50th Wedding Anniversary present gift. What an amazing any occasion gift!! I am Gary Burns the treewiz or Wiz. I can Personalize it on the back, if it is simple like a short sentence and date there is no extra charge. It comes ready to hang on the wall. It really makes a loving statement!! The next to last photo is of me carving in my shop and the last photo is of my gallery, The Tree Wizard Gallery in Port Orford, Oregon.
It measures 28 1/2" tall x 10 1/2" wide x 2 1/2" thick. SHIPPING IS INCLUDED IN ALL OF MY CARVINGS!! :)
I carved this heart out of a piece of spalted Myrtle wood that grows in my neck of the woods, in Southern Oregon. The spalting shows in the dark almost black streaks throughout the piece. And there is some unique figuring in the grain of this piece. Myrtle Wood is a very unique wood only growing in Oregon and around the Mediterranean. There are fun little Myrtle Wood Shops all over Western Oregon. The wood has a wonderful, unique sort of spicy scent. I love working it. I just got this piece not too long ago and I was really wanting to make it. This is a very kool looking heart. :)
It is flat on the back so it hangs on the wall. I have attached a metal self leveling hanger on the back for hanging and I signed Wiz on the back as well.
All of my carvings have a lacquer finish. Dusting with a feather duster or blowing off with a compressor is all that is necessary on the carved trees, fish and carved faces. I use Orange oil on the smooth surfaces. This will perk them up. I would do it as often as you polish your furniture. Once a month would keep them looking great but is not necessary.
I will contact you as soon as I get your order. I will package it that day or the next. I take it to the Post Office the next morning. If I get an order on Friday afternoon, Saturday or Sunday it will be in Monday mornings mail.
I use Priority United States postal service mail.
I do ship outside of the US. I need to know the carving that you are interested in and your complete shipping address. I will figure what it costs to ship to your address and make the changes to the listing so that you can make the purchase.
