“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” ―Winston Churchill

I started True Stock Studios for my love of woodworking and to create wood art decor and wooden signs that enrich lives. 

But that's not enough... It's also important that we act responsibly to protect our planet as we consume precious resources while also making a positive impact on the lives of others.

Please read below to see the steps we are taking to help the planet and our fellow man.

Our Story

True Stock Studios is a family-run business in Chicago where Jason Schickerling creates hand-crafted wood wall art and wooden sign decor.

The venture was founded in 2018 on an idea from Jason’s daughter, with a simple request to have a lotus flower carved into a black wooden background to add to her bedroom.

Fast-forward to today and her design is now one of True Stock Studios’ most popular products, adorning the walls of hundreds of homes around the world.

Our mission

True Stock Studios' mission is to offer beautifully carved wood art decor that inspires and enriches lives, makes our products sustainably, builds a creative and diverse team, and makes a positive impact in communities where we live and work by funding charities and causes that our customers care about.


When you purchase wood art decor from True Stock Studios, you can feel good that you are supporting an environmentally-friendly small business that leverages technologies that invest in sustainability initiatives to counteract the environmental impact of shipping.

We are currently funding certified projects like Jari Para that comply with the best-in-class carbon offset protocols and standards. Learn More.
