Custom handmade solid cedar wooden journal w/ personalized engraving

This handmade wooden album / journal is crafted to order from hand cut, sanded, and stained wooden sheets. Each book can be make in either cedar wood, alder wood, or maple. Each piece of wood can be carefully and artistically stained using a layering technique to give it a unique dark rustic look or left plain to show off the natural wood colours and texture. This book comes unstained by default so send me a message if you would like this option. The spine of this book is made from genuine cowhide leather which is rubbed with mink oil to bring out a nice leathery smell. Different colour options are available by request. I will select a colour of leather that suits the book if no request is made. Once the book cover has been made, a personal message can be engraved into the cover. The Frisbee golf scene can be included or left out. Once your order has been placed I will send you a few layouts and I will confirm the design with you before starting.

Each book is roughly 10" X 5.5" (outer dimensions) and comes with either 50 sheets of plain white paper or 30 sheets of archival quality cardstock. A custom book can be made to accommodate as many pages as you need by request.

Wood types (pictures coming soon):

Cedar wood - These books are dark in colour and they smell amazing! The wood is a bit less firm than the alder wood and the maple so it is a bit more fragile.

Alder wood - These books have a mid-tone colour to them and an amazing texture. They are also fairly firm and sturdy.

Maple wood - These books have the lightest wood colour of the three and have the classic maple wood texture. They are quite firm and sturdy.


I can add a customized engraving to the front and/or back cover of this book for you or I can leave it plain if you would like. Check out my other listings for alternate font options. Send me a message to inquire about different staining options and metal and leather embellishments. You can take a look at my other listings to get a sense of what pieces I have available for corners and latches and what the leather and metal hinges look like. Send me a message describing what you would like and if I can make it for you, I will create you a custom listing. If You don't have any special requests just send me a message in checkout telling me what you would like engraved on your book. Don't forget to choose your font and hinges :)

I take bulk orders (2-20+), just send me a message to make arrangements.

The word 'wisdom' appears on the back cover. Wisdom is my last name and my way of signing (or branding) my work. I wont include this if you don't want me to. Just send me a message asking me to exclude it.


Paypal and Etsy direct are the preferred methods of payment. Currently I do not accept money orders.

Everything in my shop is made in, and ship from, Canada. If you are having your item shipped outside of Canada, please be aware of the import duties that may be charged to you by your country. I will not cover these charges under any circumstances.

Please complete your payment as soon as possible. I will not start the creation process on your project until payment has been processed and we have communicated details about your project. If I do not receive payment and communication within one week of the order being placed, I will cancel the order.

Shipping from Canada

All orders will be shipped to your Etsy Address. If you would like to arrange for delivery to another address, please contact me to make arrangements.

Please provide a contact phone number with your order. This number will only be used by the courier delivering your package in case of difficulty delivering your package. The courier will only guarantee delivery times if a contact number has been provided.

Since everything I create is made to order and each project can take up to three weeks to complete, creation + shipping time should be taken into consideration if you need your order by a certain date. If you require rush delivery on an item, please contact me to make arrangements (an additional fee may apply).

Contact me to upgrade your shipping to Priority or Express and tracking.

International shipments outside of Canada and the US are shipped with International Parcel - Surface service and can take up to 3 months to be delivered depending on the country you are in. Larger items may also incur additional shipping fees which will be noted before your project is started. If you need to receive your order quickly you can upgrade the shipping on your package by requesting a shipping upgrade.

Shipments to Canada and the US are shipped with standard ground shipping and typically take 1-6 business days to arrive at their destination. Upgrades to express and overnight shipping services are available by request (additional fees apply).

All customs fees will be paid by buyer. If your item is not picked up from the post office or it has an incorrect address, and it is sent back to me as a result, a second shipping fee will be charged to send your package a second time.

Although Rustic Engravings does ship to the US, there may be an additional charge for shipping to Alaska, Hawaii, or Puerto Rico. Also, if you live in an extremely rural area, there is a very small chance that I will not be able to ship to you or there will be an additional fee to cover the extra postage. If you live in the absolute middle of nowhere and you think shipping to your address may incur additional fees, send me a message and I will double check for you. I will not add on any fees without your permission.

Returns and exchange details

Since the items sold at my store are custom made to order art pieces, no returns will be accepted under any circumstances. These pieces are custom made usable artwork and I check everything before I send it out and I will only ship products that meet my high standards of quality.

Since all items are made to order, wood grain will differ from the example image but I always try to select wood with an interesting grain pattern so each book will have character. Note that creative liberties are taken in the creation of each piece. The coloring and texture of your piece will vary from the original listing as well as from the mockup design. When you are purchasing one of my pieces, you are ordering a unique, customized, made-to-order art piece. If your book contains screws, please note that screw color may also vary. Screws may be all silver, all black, or all brass, depending on what I have in stock. Screw color is not guaranteed but if you prefer a specific screw color please send me a message and I will try to accommodate your request.

I can only refund items that are damaged during shipping if you, the recipient, open the package with the mail carrier present and initiate a damage claim through the mail carrier. I can issue a refund once that claim has been resolved.

Please be aware of your country's import laws. Rustic Engravings will not issue a refund for any package that is held at the boarder due to import restrictions.


I am happy to work with you to create a custom order. I can also take bulk orders.
