Wood Art by Tom Hawks
Tom's Wood Art
Welcome to my web site! I am Tom Hawks and I live in Soddy Daisy, Tennessee. I have a very unique hobby called, INTARSIA. It is a form of wood-inlay where you cut individual pieces of natural colors of wood, without using stains or dyes, shape, trim, fit, sand and glue together to make a "wood picture".
I use all colors of wood such as western red cedar, eastern red/white cedar, aspen, walnut, mulberry, spalted maple, cherry, mahogany, etc.. I make projects of pets, animals, characters, scenery, themes, objects, etc.. They range in sizes, number of pieces, colors and other factors.
They make wonderful gifts for birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, or just for folks who have memories of things from the past. And they will literally last a lifetime. You can hang them on the wall or prop them up on stands to enjoy. Prices will depend on size and how many pieces and what colors of wood are involved.
I hope you enjoy all of my projects and if you want to see my prices on some of my items, click on MY PHOTOS at the top of this page, then click on the Jesus album that appears and 5 pages of projects will appear. All you do is move your mouse over any picture and it will reflect the price. To enlarge any picture, click on it. Also, click on PHOTO at the top and there is more pictures to see.

I have had more requests to have the Clydesdales posted again and here they are. This project has over 200 pieces, consists of aspen, walnut, western red cedar and Tennessee red cedar. The project is 3/4 inches thick and is a very beautiful project to hang and enjoy year round.
Behind the Scenes of My Home Page
This project is being posted again from the past as many folks have inquired about it since I made it back in the summer of this year. Made of western red cedar, Tennessee red cedar, aspen, mulberry and walnut, the "Tiger" was made for the American Trucking Associations in Washington, D.C. and they auctioned it off at the National Professional Truck Driving Championships in August at Columbus, Ohio.
