Southern Accents wanted to design a valentine, and with the help of local artist Leldon Maxcy, we created some gorgeous salvaged wood hearts! Each one-of-a-kind heart is hand crafted from salvaged wood and is ready to hang. The hearts, which are available in two sizes in a variety of color options, have been very popular and make a great gift item for your valentine.
Over the years we have called on Leldon on many occasions to help us out with odd jobs. We weren’t aware of his mad scroll saw skills until a couple of years ago when he brought in some ornaments that he had made for Christmas. We were blown away with the intricate details in the wood that he had created with the use of his scroll saw.
Last year as we were preparing for Southern Makers, we decided that we wanted to build a huge replica of the State of Alabama to use as the stage backdrop. We wanted each county represented and we wanted the backdrop to be a colorful mix of salvaged wood. As the Alabama design began to take shape, we knew that Leldon was the one with the skills to cut out each county and help us create our over sized Alabama puzzle. He rose to the challenge and the backdrop was a huge hit!
After Southern Makers we began getting requests for the state cutouts on a smaller scale. We put Leldon to work and have kept him busy ever since! We currently have the Alabama cutouts in two sizes as well as picture frames and our newest creations, the hearts.
We will be bringing a great selection of our salvaged wood art with us to Southern Makers April 30 – May 1. Tickets for Southern Makers are currently on sale at southernmakers.com. In the interim, stop by our showroom to see the wide variety of wall art that we have to offer.
