Private Commissions

About this project

Customers have commissioned decorative relief carved panels, house signs, wedding gifts, bed headboards, memorials to pets, and green burial markers. After price and requirements are agreed, sketch designs are approved and a fullsize drawing made. For pieces sited outside I use oak; for indoor work, sycamore, lime and redwood are good. I use acrylic paints and varnish for exterior work, watercolour for inside; if a natural finish is preferred, linseed oil or acrylic varnish is applied instead.
