PLY... like 2-Ply Toilet Paper?

No. Wait. Well. Kinda, I guess.

Like toilet paper, plywood is made of different layers called plies (or veneers), hence the name PLYwood. It's what makes plywood strong, versatile, and prevents it from warping. It also makes a great surface to present artwork on.

I start by cutting pieces of adhesive vinyl to create a one-use stencil. Since I'm building this on a computer and because a stencil is only good once, I'm able to create totally custom prints.

Then, I adhere the vinyl to the piece of plywood and apply stain. The amount of time the stain needs to stay and adhere to the wood has to be really precise.

I use birch plywood. Birch balances having an awesome grain pattern, and staining really well.

This shop is really just is an elaborate excuse to hang out in my workshop and create custom pieces of hangable art.

Additional policies and FAQs
If you'd like something custom, please drop me a line. I'm open to creating customized versions of artwork I'm already selling or something completely original.

Since each piece of wood has a different grain pattern and will absorb a different amount of stain, each piece will be unique. The images on the site indicate the design and position of the artwork on the piece of wood, but most likely will not reflect the exact grain pattern or the exact shade of stain.
