Groom Boxes Just for You

Our wooden Totes are wonderfully versatile.  From grooming tools to gardening tools, they are an elegant means of carrying your tools out to the garden or over to the barn.

We can custom carve your monogram, or your horse’s name, or your farm’s name.  How about displaying your stable’s name on your custom Groom Box?  Or, if you wish, we can carve your favorite blossom from your garden, making your Garden Tote a truly personalized tool.

Equestrian Tack Armoire

Give the gift of storage –

This tack cabinet has room for everything but the horse.  Our client came to us with a limited budget and a wish list of features for this custom tack cabinet.  The tack armoire was ordered “unfinished” so that our client could enjoy the process of painting the cabinet with the recipient of this thoughtful gift.

Personalized Gifts for the Bride & Groom

There are so many wonderful items which would make memorable gifts for a newly married couple.  A couple’s wedding registry would certainly provide well-wishers with an abundance of suggestions.  Having a gift custom crafted and personalized is undoubtedly a wonderful way to celebrate the Bride & Groom’s union, as well.  Our Serving Trays can be custom carved with the couple’s surname or their monogram to commemorate their special day.  The Serving Tray’s surface area is your blank canvas waiting to be carved with your unique design.

This recent creation featured the Bride & Groom’s names, along with their surname and the year of their family’s establishment.  We hope the lovely couple enjoys their new Serving Tray for years to come – in serving one another and practicing hospitality.

All the best to Elissa & Joseph Maxwell.  We wish you peace & joy.

Congratulations from all of us here at Gathering Wood.

Celebrating a Restaurant’s Anniversary

We enjoy commemorating anniversaries and creating unique gifts for celebrations.  An anniversary is truly a time to celebrate.  Our client commissioned us to create this custom Serving Tray to be presented to the proprietors of a restaurant in celebration of the restaurant’s anniversary.  Kiwiana, a chic bistro in Brooklyn, New York, recently celebrated their 3rd anniversary.  The ever adorable Kiwi of New Zealand takes center stage in this design.

Live Edge Commemoration Plaque

We enjoy making custom Commemoration Plaques for our clients.  We’ve been honored to be part of the design and creation of such unique pieces celebrating business ventures, military advancements, weddings, anniversaries, personal retirements, homecomings, home purchases, and precious baby births.

With so many reasons to celebrate, it’s a good thing that there isn’t an end to the styles and shapes which constitute a Commemoration Plaque.  They can be crafted from various materials — from Acrylic to Zebrawood, and so many in between.  Commemoration Plaques are an excellent means of expressing your creativity while celebrating a memorable milestone.  Your personalized Commemoration Plaque can be displayed on an easel or hung on a wall.

We were commissioned to create a one-of-a-kind Wedding Anniversary Plaque for our client’s parents’ 50th Wedding Anniversary.  This project had an endearing element in that the wood used in the creation was from a Maple tree which had at one time graced the couple’s property.  Our client relished the opportunity of retaining the live edge.

Our client also requested a dedication to be carved on the back of the Plaque.  This certainly made an attractive keepsake for the couple.

Personalizing Your Kentucky Clock

Our Kentucky Shaped Clock artistically conveys the outline of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.  You can also order your Kentucky Shaped Wall Clock custom carved with your preferred text.

The clock pictured below was custom ordered to simply read “Home”.  For our client, temporarily living outside the Commonwealth of Kentucky, this subtle aide-memoire hinted to the time that he would someday return to Kentucky.

For another client, the Commonwealth of Kentucky is now home.  However, he didn’t wish to forget his birthplace in Canada.  Along with carving his surname, we incorporated the beautiful Maple leaf as a subtle reminder of his Canadian roots.

With the addition of a custom carved monogram, we created a unique gift to sit atop her father-in-law’s dresser top or nightstand and hold his pocket accessories.  Handcrafted solid Cherry hardwood feet brought the finishing touches to this custom design.

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.
