Mesquite wood chopping block and serving tray with carved name and inlaid crushed turquoise
this was a scrap piece of live edgeMesquite wood that I sent the repurposed wood through my planer to smooth down. It had a lot of cracks, voids and wormholes which were filled with black epoxy. Then the last name was carved into the wood slab by hand and then filled with crushed Arizona turquoise and epoxy to create a very southwestern look to the kitchen piece.it was a fun project to do as our carved wood sign shop usually doesn’t do projects like this but will be doing more of These custom made trivets, wood coasters and cutting boards in the future.
Custom Carved Wood Sign from Wood Signs by Design for my fellas Lavor & Rex at the WineglassBar Sawmill in Phoenix Arizona. This urban sawmill help save trees that have felled in the city from going to the landfill. Lavor and Rex are retirees from the Midwestwho decided to open up a urban sawmill in downtown Phoenix. They collect trees that have been downed by monsoon storms or folks that need to simply bring down a tree. Instead of this quality hardwood ending up in the garbage dump, they go and get these logs, mill them up into usable lumber and then kiln dried the pieces in a kiln they have on their sawmill property. Watching these guys mill up the trees that they have saved is quite a sight to see. This reclaimed piece of wood is a live edge slab of mesquite wood. Lavor wanted a nice carved wood sign sign for when they attend shows. It’s carved out of re-purposed Urban Mesquite Wood and finished with several coats of tung oil. I think the colors really pop with this wood slab.

This is a custom carved one sign for a Kids Bedroom. Their personal first names and favorite Star Wars characters were carved into the wood. The wood is Arizona Aleppo pine which is a tough durable pine wood originally from Israel. The wood was naturally sealed with 2 coatings of tung oil.
