In addition to my OtterTail Lab Art dog paintings I also make a variety of dog theme wood items. My husband helps on these projects so it is a family affair. Here is a custom design I created to celebrate the outstanding accomplishments of a Lab and her owner. Black Lab Nell has earned her OTCH (Obedience Trial Champion), MH (Master Hunter title), and several agility titles and she is only 5 years old. They are a busy team!
We call this basic piece our Combination Frame. It is sized to hold a standard 8x10" AKC title certificate in the lower opening and a photo of the title holder in the upper opening. (Of course, you could put photos in both openings instead.) They have been very popular since we started making them in 1992. Purchasing a Combination Frame has become a tradition for many of our customers and we are thrilled to help them celebrate their awards and achievements with our beautiful naturally finished hardwood frames. We typically use maple, cherry and black walnut woods, though may have other fine hardwood choices as well. This example is spalted red maple. All pieces are individually cut with a scroll saw and receive a hand-rubbed natural finish that honors the beauty of the wood. Some of the other wood items we make include peg racks, shelves, other styles of hunting dog picture frames and dog urns with multiple design options. Custom inquiries are always welcome.
