If you know anything about Plywerk, you would know that we offer custom wood prints in birch or bamboo. But did you know that we also sell blank birch and bamboo wood panels? You might be confused. Why would anyone want a blank wood panel right? Wrong! You would be surprised at all the things you could do with a beautiful wood panel. I’ll share with you three different things you could do to start you off!
1. Create Your Own Art Piece
I’m sure many of you are amazing artists! Painting on canvases is nice, but hanging a canvas can get tricky. Our blank panels come with one or two keyhole slots (up to you) on the back to make hanging a breeze. They also could be portrait or landscape orientation (also up to you). It’s an extremely simple way to create your own art piece. All you have to do is paint your piece! It will make for great home decor or a meaningful gift for someone.
2. DIY Photo Transfer
If you are often on Pinterest you definitely know about DIY photo transfers! It’s been a huge trend to take a photo and transfer it onto wood yourself. It’s a lot of fun and a great project to do with family. Our wood panels are a great option for this project because our wood panels are made with sustainably sourced bamboo and birch and they go through several rounds of hand-sanding provide a glass-like finish. They are also all handcrafted in our California workshop with 100% solar power. And don’t forget about the keyhole slots that will make hanging up your project a total breeze! If you haven’t heard about DIY photo transfers, check out some tutorials on Pinterest!
3. Quote Inspiration
Everyone has a certain quote that is near and dear to them. It could be a quote from a famous philosopher or even just a quote from your mom. Take your favorite quote and display it to the world! With one of our wood panels, you have so many options on how to display your quote. You can photo transfer, paint on your quote, etc!
And there you go! But the things you could do with our blank wood panels definitely don't stop with those three options, the options are endless. Don’t forget that we offer a huge variety of sizes so you can find the perfect size for your project. What would you do with a blank wood panel?
At Plywerk, we use birch and bamboo for all of our wood prints (unlike our sister site over at Prints On Wood). Birch and bamboo are specialized forms of plywood, and both are fantastic for custom photo wood prints. However, there are slight differences between both selections. Read on to find out more:
-Birch comes in 3/4" thick sustainable birch plywood.
-Birch is the lightest among the two options.
-The layered side profile gives the wood print a unique and lovely look.
-Artists and photographers choose birch as their main choice for a canvas.
-It's guaranteed 100% sustainable wood.
-Bamboo is also 3/4" thick sustainable bamboo plywood.
-Contrary to popular belief, bamboo is actually made of grass - not wood.
-It's the heavier option amongst the 2.
-There is a "flute" (fancier, more elegant) side, and a "layered" (simple, classic) side.
-It's more expensive than birch, but the quality is unmatched.
Both options are great. In fact, it all comes down to personal preference. Many people prefer the look of birch while others prefer the feel of bamboo. And if you prefer purchase a blank bamboo panel or blank birch art panel.
Regardless, they're both great canvases to print your art and photos on. And if you're unsure which one to pick, why not go with both? Trust us, you can never go wrong with either option!
We offer plenty of options of little trinkets here at Plywerk. Everything is customizable, extremely fun, and unique! We have desktop blocks, magnets, and ornaments. While it’s the coolest to be able to customize these fun trinkets, we also are currently offering equally cool (maybe cooler) limited special edition Jeff Soto ornaments.
These ornaments are definitely something you don’t want to look over. There are a total of 12 ornaments. Each ornament represents a month with different artworks of flowers. Every ornament is finished with an eyelet and organza ribbon, perfect to be hung up anywhere you’d like or on your tree for the holidays!
Here’s the January ornament! I particularly love this set of ornaments because all together they look beautifully cohesive but because they look so different and unique they stand well on their own as well. Every ornament brings out something different and they all have such distinct feelings.
Like all product made here at Plywerk, the ornament is made with 100% solar power. Also, each ornament is made from gorgeous sustainably harvested solid 3/4" bamboo and has went through several rounds of hand-sanding provide a glass-like finish.
If picking only one from the 12 beautiful ornaments is too difficult, our bundle might be the solution you’re looking for! You can purchase all 12 ornaments in a bundle for a discounted price or you can check them out individually.
Is your home starting to feel small and cluttered due to all the items you own? No more space to display a gift? Are you tripping over items on the floor? No space to work on your tables or desks? Don’t worry! You aren’t the only one with these problems.
When my space started to become cluttered the last thing I wanted to do was throw things out… I enjoy everything I own and wanted to keep everything so I knew I needed to find a way to sort and organize my items ASAP. I tried looking at shelves and other organizers but I just didn’t have the space for them! That’s when I realized the Boo Boxes were perfect for me. With no more space on the ground to utilize, my walls were my only option left.
My favorite thing about the Boo Boxes is that they come in so many different shapes and sizes. They come in the simple square but also come in a more fancy hexagon bamboo shelf and others shapes as well. It’s a simple piece that adds so much more style to a room. It doesn't take much to mount and doesn't require the space a normal organizer would. Not to mention they are able to hold and display your items in such a cute, stylish way!
My favorite thing to display in these boxes is definitely plants! But they can hold and display so much more… You can display your mugs, photos, prints, sculptures, books, the options are endless! What would you display?
Check out these Boo Boxes here! They will definitely change your home’s environment instantly. Hope you like them as much as I do!
