Announcement   Each piece is hand crafted by myself and guaranteed that it is an original. You will not find another exactly the same. All the colors are natural wood and finished with three coats of hand rubbed satin finish. The shop has international shipping experience and the shop owner will do everything possible so that our relationship will exceed your expectations.. All pieces are carefully packaged and sent insured for the full value.

Intarsia is a unique style of wood carving and you will find many different variations in the finished product. There is no right or wrong way to complete the artwork, it is up to the buyer to select the style of design that appeals to them the most. You will find that my pieces are three dimensional sculptured and many times the pieces are elevated to enhance the natural appearance. These pieces are anywhere from 5/16th inch thick to over 1.5 inches in depth. My personal style of Intarsia does not use any wood stains and the color variations are dependent on the characteristics of the exotic woods used. It is recommended that you do not display item in sunlight or below harsh lighting as color may darken as the wood ages. Exotic woods will naturally darken over a period of time. My art is carved from original designs by nationally known Intarsist, Judy Gale Roberts.

PAYMENT: Etsy offers many payment variables to accommodate your purchases. If you are ordering an item that has been sold, your completed purchase will automatically reserve the piece when it is completed and give me notice of your purchase. Upon receipt of the notice of purchase, you will be immediately contacted to discuss completion & shipping information. If we should not be able to work things out to your satisfaction, your money will be immediately refunded. The popularity of my work is forcing me to extend the turn around times but I will always attempt to meet your scheduled needs. Lets talk about it.

NOTICE OF SOLD ITEMS: Items maybe marked sold that are not included in the sold numbers recorded by Etsy. The reason being is that many sales are made thru word of mouth contacts or results from art shows in addition to family referrals.

SHIPPING: The estimated cost of shipping including insurance is detailed on each item listed. If I totally miss the estimate, you will be refunded with any overcharges as its not my intent to make a profit on postage. Also shipping to other countries varies so much that I prefer to calculate an estimate unique to your location. You can also contact me thru the Etsy shop site, or email: at waterbug545 [!at] gmail.com. If that is not practical, you can always reach me on my cell phone. 218 760-0222. I will then provide the estimate information on the listed item and you then complete the
transaction.

SHIPPING TIME: Any purchased item on hand will be shipped in 1-2 business days. All custom orders will be shipped in 3-4 weeks or less depending on my carving schedule. Upon notice of purchase I will contact you concerning the actual carving schedule and when you can expect the item.

SALES TAX: Will be added to all purchasers from within the State of Minnesota and will be based off of purchase price & any shipping costs as listed.

I ordered the lily wall décor for a friend who lost her first grandchild. She loved the artwork and it was very beautiful. Would recommend any gift by RAKOWOODS. He does wonderful work!

This is an amazing piece of artwork. I was blown away by how beautiful it really was when I was finally holding it. Made to order, and signed and dated, which made it feel really unique. It made a perfect gift for the pelican lover in my life. I also really loved that attached to the back was a list of the woods used and how many pieces went into creating the bird. That was really neat to have.

About

Rakowoods's studio is in a custom designed shop that is located in my home. We have access to over 200 other designs that are available thru Judy Gale Roberts, a leading national Intarsia artist. Also have over 60 patterns on hand. If we do not have what you are looking for, there are several other design artists that we use as a resource. All my carvings are made from natural exotic hardwoods & others that are selected for the wood color and grain patterns. I do not use any stains on my carved sculptures and all pieces are signed by myself. On the back of each piece, a Rakowoods business card is attached for your convenience in making your next purchase. I also attach a declaration that lists all the woods used & also the number of pieces that make up the art piece.

    My interest in Intarsia started by building bird houses with hand carved attachments. It created a desire to do more with wood designs.

My shop is located in northern Minnesota, in the City of Bemidji located on the shores of Lake Bemidji & Lake Irving.

All items shipped with insurance at full value. WATCH THIS SITE AS I'am adding new items monthly.
