Framed Wall Arts with Scripture Verses

Our client chose two verses of Scripture which he wanted custom carved and framed as Wall Arts to give as gifts to his children. These two framed pieces feature texts from the books of Mark and John.

Framed Wall Art with Scripture Verse

And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is,
Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart,
and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind,
and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

John 14 6 Wall Art Framed copy

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

.30 Caliber Bolt Action Pens

Our son, Jameson, began the adventure of turning wood. Last year, at age twelve, after setting up his first lathe with his father’s help, he started turning bowls, goblets, plates, and candlesticks. In his efforts to improve his woodworking skills, he divides his time in the shop to allow for plenty of time at his lathe. Now, at thirteen years of age, he is turning out some stunning barrels for his .30 Caliber Bolt Action Pens.

30 Caliber Bolt Action Pens

Jameson’s pens sell for $28.00 – $30.00 each, depending on the metal finish.

Custom Gifts for the Rancher

This was another enjoyable project. Our clients knew exactly which elements they wanted, but they didn’t know if they would all work together. A wish to include the couple’s name, the name of the couple’s ranch, the date of establishment, and an image of a sheep all came together in this lovely custom Serving Tray.
