Thank you for your inquiry concerning Scrollsaw Art. I use Big Leaf Western Maple - a beautiful wood which features unique variations of figure and color in each peace of artwork. All artwork is an original due to the variations in each piece of wood. The curl, quilt and multiple other figures give a three dimensional effect to our wood. The colors stand out in contrast to the subdued uniformity of other woods. I am situated in Battle Ground, Washington. For those who are not familiar with Washington, Vancouver is just across the Columbia River from Portland, Oregon. The wood I use is slowly and gently dried by first seasoning it, then drying it in a dehumidifier kiln. I purchase most of my wood from one source and have never had any problems with warpage or cracking of the wood. All of my pieces have been sealed with linseed oil, it protects the wood and brings out the natural color.
All artwork can be furnished with a shadow box. The shadow box enhances the artwork and will protect it from dust and moisture. The wood is generally selected to compliment the artwork. I use primarily Mahagony, Oak, Walnut, and Alder. Other woods are available on request. Pricing of shadow boxes average approximately $125. Quotes are available upon request. I generally make shadow boxes for my artwork, but I have had many requests for shadow boxes only; they can be purchased seperately.
Shipping, Freight and Insurance
Cost will vary depending on location, size and weight of the artwork. Minimum charge will be $10.00 and be as high as $50.00. Once an order is placed I can give you a fairly close estimate of the cost to ship.
Generally all work will be made after the order is placed. I have a small inventory of artwork and it can be shipped within a few days. Currently the lead time for a piece of artwork is 2 to 4 weeks. A 50% deposit is required prior to cutting out artwork. all orders can have the photos of the layout(artwork) and wood sent for approval prior to cutting out of the artwork. Call or email for more information.
