Here are some tips to take care of your new carving to make it looking awesome for years!
Let’s be real, it is a log and they tend to crack over the years. It’s Nature!
If you are putting your new carving inside, do not display it near the fireplace, A/C vent, or as it can dry out the log and cause it to crack even faster
Your carving is made of wood, which means it can split, rot, invite insects, or fade
Do NOT put your carving directly on the ground or in grass. Use a solid structure such as a stone , gravel, concrete, or pavers to protect it from moisture in the ground as well as insects
If there is a lot of rain in your area, please keep the carving properly sealed as it can become water damaged if water comes in contact with the inside of the carving
Most of our carvings are sealed with Minwax Polyurethane, which can be purchased at a local paint or hardware store.
You can buy this in a spray can, or can buy in a paint can and brush on
When you identify new cracks, spray or brush on sealer on the surface to avoid further cracking in that area.
Do not try to fill the crack with sealer, just coat the surface
Sealer comes in a gloss or matte finish, whichever you prefer
I recommend sealing your carving every 6 months to keep it protected from natural causes
It happens, sorry to say. If your carving is stolen, please contact your local police department
If your carving is stolen from your business, send out a notification to the media and get as much free advertising as you can
