This is a Maple burl wood wooden Heart wall hanging, the perfect 5th wood Wedding Anniversary gift present. It's an amazing any occasion gift!! I am Gary Burns the treewiz and I carved everything in my shop. 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. It really makes a loving statement!! There is a lot of live edge on this heart. That's when there is bark or the edge of the tree in a piece. I love the contrast with the smooth sanded portions. One of my favorite affects! There is birds eye grain throughout the piece.
It measures 26" tall x 17 1/2" wide x 2" thick. There are 8 different photos of this heart above! :)
I carved this heart out of a piece of Maple burl wood that grows in my neck of the woods, in Southern Oregon. It actually grows from Northern California up to British Columbia. I love working it. I use it more than any other wood. Spalting is when the wood starts to rot. Fungi start working the wood over when it remains wet after it has died or is on it's way to die. It stops when the wood gets below 18 percent moisture and would start in again if it was immersed in water to bring the moisture up over 28 percent. It adds so much character to a piece of wood. Please contact me if ya have any questions!! :)
SHIPPING IS INCLUDED IN ALL OF MY CARVINGS!!
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.
