50th anniversary gift heart present idea

Sorry, this item has sold.

This heart would make the perfect 50th anniversary gift present idea. It would make the perfect present for any occasion. I am Gary Burns the treewiz or Wiz. It measures 17" tall x 14 12" wide x 3 1/2" thick. This is really a unique piece to me!! I hardly ever see Madrone burl. This piece started out pretty gnarly. The last two photos are of the piece before I started. And it's really thick. There are some interesting voids. I filled most of the cracks. They just add to the gnarliness.


A burl is usually caused by the trees reaction to an agro bacteria. It is sort of like a wart on a person. It doesn't affect the tree. It grows outside of the growth rings. I got this piece not too long ago and it was dry and ready to go. It has some signs of beetle larva that I treated. And I filled the holes and channels. This piece is flat on the back so it can hang on the wall. I have fastened a self leveling hanger for hanging and I signed it 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.
