RAKOWOODS' Shop 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. My art is carved from original designs lby 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] 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
