Matthew Hoffman has been saying it with wood for years and he’s bringing back his What Wood You Say series with a bang. This latest edition is a framed, hand-cut piece of art featuring whatever you want to say in three-dimensional wood letters.

‘I Never Know Quite What To Get You’ in Party Mix colors

The customizable piece begins by you picking the words and whatever colors you want to use. Hoffman then gets to work by hand drawing the words, painting them, cutting them out, finishing them, assembling them, and then mounting them in a frame.

Each custom piece is made from solid mahogany and comes already framed in a readymade shadow box waiting to be hung up.
