Loving Wedding Anniversary gift present


Shipping to United States: Free

A unique Wedding Anniversary gift wall heart present idea. It would be a unique handmade gift for any occasion! I am Gary Burns the Tree Wizard or Wiz. I really love this wood! The last photo is of the original slab. This was a tricky one to figure out but I love the challenge. PRIORITY SHIPPING IS INCLUDED IN THE PRICE!
It measures 20 1/2" tall x 11" wide x 1 1/2" thick. There are some voids and natural edge or live edge in this piece. It's not for those who want a blemish free Heart. But what is a perfect heart? This heart shows the traces of a trying, bumpy journey but is still so very full of Love. Life just isn't easy over the years for a lot of us. There is much in Life that is testing and gives us contrast and value for the amazing moments.
This Buckeye Burl grows in the foothills of the Sierra's in California. It is a tricky tree to harvest because of the clay soil it grows in. When the soil is dry, it is harder than the wood. When the soil is wet, it is too slippery for the back hoe to get in and dig it out. The wood is expensive for me to buy but I feel it's worth it.
This piece is flat on the back so it can hang on the wall. I have fastened a metal self leveling hanger on the back for hanging and it is signed Wiz on the back.

Frequently Asked Questions

Care instructions

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.

When will I get my purchased carving?

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.

How will my carving be shipped?

I use Priority United States postal service mail.

Do you ship outside of the US?

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.
