"He's the precise one, a woodworking and math wizard –– I'm the detail queen with an eye for design and typography chops. Together we hand-select each piece of reclaimed wood, then cut, sand, stain and reassemble them as wood canvases."

At first, Chris and Brittany combined forces to make a wedding gift for a friend. The excited responses made them realize that they weren't the only ones who had a soft spot for reclaimed wood and typography. The duo hand-selects each and every piece of wood before cutting, sanding, staining and assembling 'em. The woodworking side of things is Chris' realm, while Brittany –– a graphic designer with a crush on typography –– takes care of the custom lettering. She paints each one of 'em by hand, and sometimes, just sometimes, the recipients of all this hard work shed a tear or two of joy.
