Authentic Wall Art

With the help of a laser cutter, we produce quality handmade wall art. The creative process starts with mixing various hues of stain to create the right shades.The wood is then hand finished, and the intricate designs are etched with a laser. The cut pieces are put together, and the final top coat is applied, resulting in the ornately detailed pieces of authentic wall art. all of the work on this website has been crafted in my own garage in Texas
