A chosen section of a printed map has been transferred onto a hand-cut piece of reclaimed timber to create this unique artwork.
I can create this item with the map centered on any location in England, Scotland and Wales only. Simply enter a place name and postcode in the field above when ordering. You could choose the location of a honeymoon or wedding, or where you live.
It is perfect to give as a present to remember a special place. A very thoughtful and truly unique gift.
Each map varies but as a general rule the maps cover an area of 1.5 miles x 1.5 miles so please bear this in mind when specifying the location.
This item is small enough to stand on a shelf or mantlepiece but can also be hung on the wall. It is supplied with a concealed hanger for easy hanging from a picture pin or nail.
I also offer this item framed in a simple white wood profile. You may prefer this as it gives the artwork a more contemporary, less rustic style. Simply select this via the option menu when placing your order. If you would like to purchase a beech wood display easel this can also be selected via the 'Display Options' menu (most suitable for unframed pictures).
The technique I use to make my items works best with black and white images which gives the finished article a gorgeous timeless look. I use reclaimed pine boards chosen specifically for their character and eco credentials. The old boards are cleaned, sanded and cut to size to reveal the natural beauty of the wood. Nail holes, knots and wood grain show through the image to retain the character and qualities of the reclaimed timber.
Please note that the wood used varies in colour from dark antique pine to pale blonde pine. The pattern of the grain is also variable, and the number of knot holes and nail holes also varies from piece to piece. These natural variations are not seen as a fault as they add to the character of the handmade nature of the item.
Once I have accepted your order I will send a jpeg proof of your map for your approval. If you have not received your proof within 48 hours of placing an order please check your email spam folder or log into your account on the notonthehighstreet.com website, go to the 'my orders' section and then click the 'order enquiry' button on the relevant order. The attachment will appear within that discussion page as a link to download.
