I am once again excited to share with you today a review on the custom wood cutouts that are provided by J.Rig Wood Works! Last year I did a review on their monogrammed pineapple and snowman cutouts and was so impressed that I wanted to get crafty with the J.Rig wood cutouts once again. This company makes a super cute wood pumpkin cutout. I was thrilled when they agreed to take my custom request for a turkey cutout. You can order these cutouts in plain wood to decorate yourself or you have an associate of J.Rigs Wood Works paint them for you. I will share with you how I gave these cutouts a little decorative touch of my very own.

I just love the pumpkin and turkey wood cutouts. These are perfect for any Fall display. I think they would be perfect for porch…or my mantel!
J. Rigs Wood Works is located in Wake Forest, North Carolina. J.Rig Wood Works specializes in quality hand-made butcher block cutting boards, island tops, wood cutouts, and much more! Each piece is custom cut, assembled, finished, and treated from local lumber suppliers. J.Rigs Wood Works also upcycles scrap hardwoods that often would have been discarded or burned. made butcher block
These cutouts are generous in size measuring 21-23 inches wide. When my cutouts arrived I decided I wanted to do something different with them. Most cutouts I have done and seen have been painted. This time I wanted to stain the wood. I felt stain would be a perfect touch for a Fall theme. Prior to staining, each pieces was lightly sanded with a fine grade sandpaper. After sanding, take a dry towel and wipe after any dust.
I chose to go with a Honey stain from Minwax. Each cutout received two coats of stain and two coats of Minwax spray polyurethane. *Tip – stain sides/edges first, wiping excess from front and back to prevent stain drips. I stained and sealed both the front and back; I did this to protect the wood since the pieces would be displayed outdoors on my porch.
All supplies can be found at Lowes. A huge thank you goes out to Lowes for your sponsorship!
I love how the pumpkin and turkey wood cutouts with stain turned out!
At first I thought I would use my cricut to create a “thankful” in vinyl to place over the turkey’s tail-feathers area. However, I decided I wanted more dimension to my project. I decided to use Fall themed sprigs and garland. The sprigs were found at Michaels and the garland was found at JoAnns. I love burlap! A large premade burlap bow and a narrow burlap spooled ribbon were purchased at Michaels.
For the turkey, the large burlap bow was hot glued over the tail feathers area. (The bow’s ends were trimmed down to desired length prior to gluing.) The tips of two Fall sprigs were trimmed down and glued in place. Play with the sprigs a bit to make them full. The thin fall garland was looped around the turkey’s neck for a little extra color.
For the pumpkin, a simple burlap bow was made and hot glued in place. Thin Fall garland was looped around the pumpkin stem. Extra thin garland was attached to the stem and then looped around a dowel rod to give it a curled look to mimic a pumpkin vine and left hanging in place. A Fall sprig was tucked under bow and glued in place.
