This oval basswood plaque will be hand-drawn and wood-burned with the words/subject of your choice.
Before you purchase this item, private message or email me (Julie at RidgeLightRanch.com) what you’re looking for and we’ll talk about what that might look like.
Woodburning, or pyrography, gives a long-lasting image and a subtle texture to the artwork. Each piece is unique, not only due to the unique wood plank with naturally preserved bark but also because each drawing is an original. Remember to keep your plaque in a cool dry place to prevent the wood from cracking with changes in humidity!
