Anything You Can Imagine Can Be Custom Carved

So if you're interested in having a Custom Commission completed, here's the simple process...

First, we talk. We talk first because it's the best way for me to really understand your vision and what you're looking for. Once we talk, I'll provide up to 3 Sketches, attempting to capture our conversations down on paper. Once we've landed on the concept, then I can generate a Quote for the Carving. This is important, as the Quote should now be comprehensive of our conversations and our shared vision. It will define the scope of the Carving, Price, approximate lead time to complete and Payment Terms. For Commissions I require a 50% Installment payment upfront, before any work begins. The remaining 50% is due upon completion. Then the final Carving is delivered to you.

It's that simple. This ensures we're both on the same page. You understand the value I bring to the table and the effort that goes into each of my Carvings. Depending on the subject matter, it could take 100's of hours to complete. My goal is to deliver an amazing, truly one-of-a-kind piece of Art to you. 

Just email me at bob@bobbruu.com to get the conversation going.

Over these last 35 years working as a wood sculptor, I’ve been asked to carve many unique custom pieces. Whether they are for wood art collectors or people that simply want to treat themselves, or someone else, to a rare, sentimental piece of art.

 

Here are a few of the more frequent requests I get:

Life-like wood carved hats with a favorite team, or any logo. They are hollowed out on the inside and can either be placed flat or hung.

Let’s face it, we all have that favorite jersey or tee; the one we reach for at the end of a long day. Or the really comfortable one we wear when going for a run,

taking a hike, riding a bike.

Other Unique & Meaningful Gift Ideas for

Life’s Special Occasions:

Think about these really special occasions in life, where a timeless,

wood-carved gift would perfectly capture the spirit of

the event…the moment…the person:

 

  • An engagement, bridal shower, wedding 

  • A ‘push-present’ for a new mom

  • A house-warming

  • The first-time grandparent

  • That milestone birthday or anniversary

  • An academic achievement

  • A retirement

  • Those who kicked cancers butt!

I recently held an informal Focus Group asking people from all walks of life what wood-carved treasure they’d love to own or give as a gift.

 

Here are some of their responses and really cool ideas to consider. Or perhaps they may inspire a deeply personal and meaningful idea of your own; an item to capture in wood-carved art:

 

  • Their beloved pet

  • Their fishing gear, sunglasses

  • A wood carving of their favorite book

  • That ornate beer stein, bottle of wine or liquor 

  • Their favorite bird or duck

  • Their well-worn pair of jeans (rips, holes, patches included!)

Anything You Can Imagine Can Be Custom-Carved. The Possibilities Are Truly Endless.
