Announcement   Welcome to Blank Space Studios. We have a mix of styles over here. Some are all natural Poplar Wood Pieces, and some Three Dimensional Dowel Art Pieces. Let's break it down, shall we?

Poplar Pieces are all original. Each one is ready to ship and once each piece is sold, its gone. You will be able to tell which pieces these are, because they are smooth, 2-Dimensional, and have variations in the wood tones. With these pieces, I hand select the grain, and don't use any stain, just doing my best to bring out the beauty in the natural range of tones Poplar provides. As the piece ages, the darker tones age to pretty chocolate tones.

The Three Dimensional Art is all made to order. During steady business times, the shipping ranges from 2-3 weeks, and during the busiest times up to 6 weeks. We use local lumber and take it all the way from lumber to finished piece, here in Austin, TX. These pieces have so many options, so feel free to change up the color of the stain, forego the stain, or switch up the design or size. With these pieces, there are so many amazing designs that can be done! For more color options, check out Varathane penetrating stain products, as I can stain any piece to those colors of your choosing.

We take great care to provide unique quality in every step, right down to the packaging of the item, so your patience in the wait time is greatly appreciated.

About

Wood Art with Quality and Design in mind.

Hi there, and thank you for stopping by the shop! We have just recently opened for business on etsy and can't wait to serve a new branch of design minded people!

I am a crafter of many years, and have been making things as gifts and honing in on my talents for about a decade now. Once I discovered woodworking, my fate was sealed.

I am inspired by design, clean lines, color, and nature. Each piece I create is something I would put in my own home. This all started when I wanted a unique wood piece for my living room, but didn't have what I invisioned in my head, to buy. The very first piece I made is still in my living room above my couch, and I love it. After making the first one, I realized I wanted to share this design with all of you. Since that time, I spent countless hours on the process, trial and error, in order to create the art to be durable, cleanable, and even more beautiful to look at.

Each piece of wood has been sanded, conditioned, stained and sealed. I use a combination of wood glue and nails to ensure durability and maintain the strength of the piece, in order to achieve the unique design. The art is put together with time, sweat (literally, I live in Texas), and love.

What drives me, is making a space feel enjoyable. It's amazing what the ambiance of a space does for our overall well being and nerves. On the side I also redo people's interiors and give solicited advice on how to make people's houses, their homes. This is something I do for fun, and for free, as it truly is my passion.

Thank you for stopping by my new shop! I hope you find what your looking for, and if you don't, we can customize it!
