Made Us Look: Custom Hand-Cut Wooden Word Wall Art
Artist Matthew Hoffman has done it again in the wood world, and has created a custom collection of art cleverly titled What Wood You Say? You pick the words and a set of colors you like, and Hoffman does the rest. He hand draws, paints, cuts, finishes, assembles, and frames each handmade holiday gift from start to finish.
Since you pick the word and colors, each piece is completely unique and created just for you. You can choose any phrase up to 30 characters, and your custom piece will be made in two weeks (plus shipping time) for just $150.
If you’re cool with giving slightly belated holiday presents, then this is a genius gift idea that you need to order… now! Or bookmark for birthdays, Valentine’s Day, or weddings. It’s the perfect gift for folks that are tough to shop for.
Check out the video below for more behind the scenes action with this incredible artist.
