This is a handmade Heart art gift Valentines Day present. It wood wall heart would be a perfect gift present for any occasion. I am Gary Burns the treewiz or Wiz and I carve everything in my shop. I can personalize any of my hearts by inscribing a message on the back for no extra charge if it is something simple like a short sentence and date. I do this by hand with a Dremel. The second to last photo is of the piece right after I cut it out. The last photo is of me carving in my shop in Port Orford, Oregon.
It measures 19 1/2" tall x 12 1/2" wide x 2" thick. And I love the live edge giving a lot of contrast to the smooth, sanded portion. The grain pattern really has a ton of character!!
SHIPPING IS INCLUDED IN ALL OF MY CARVINGS!!
It's carved out of a Maple Burl. I hardly ever see this wood. I really enjoyed making it! The dark brown portions on each side are the bark form the outside edge of the tree. There are birds eyes in the whole piece. 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. This is an amazing grain pattern to look at.
This piece is flat on the back so it can hang on the wall. I have fastened a self leveling hanger for hanging and it is signed Wiz on the back.
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.
