Gave this to my husband as a gift - he loved it. I do wish that it came in bigger sizes, however that may compromise the integrity of the design.
I bought this online from Australia for my son who lives in the States. We had recently had a holiday together in New York and I thought the New York skyline would be a great gift/memory of our time together. The gift was for his birthday (he is mid 30s). He is thrilled with it and is going to place it on the wall in his bedroom. The quality is great and I would definitely recommend.
Beautiful picture, great quality. I would definitely recommend to someone looking for a very unique gift for someone.

I bought the Cleveland skyline for my brother for his birthday. He loved it! I was worried, based on some of the examples online that it might come looking dull or boring, but it was a bright and beautiful piece of wood, with a perfect skyline silhouette. I bought the large one and only wish that it were slightly larger. Overall, however, it's a beautiful piece that made for a very well-recieved gift.
The wood skylines are displayed in my boyfriend and I's first apartment together. Though it may seem obvious from my purchase, I am from San Jose and he is from Anchorage, and we both found our way to Newport Beach together. He makes great money, so I didn't want to buy him another watch or shoes (something that he can-and does buy himself all the time), but something more meaningful for Christmas. I stumbled upon uncommongoods.com and when I came across the wooden skylines, I knew they were perfect. Thank you for the amazing find! Things that are great: The wood skylines were just as they were described online. When I opened the package, they were both just as perfect as I expected them to be. Things that weren't so great: The smell? They had a harsh finish smell to them, but I wouldn't consider that a deal-breaker. The smell faded within a day or so, and if anything, goes to show that these products were well taken care of.
My dad grew up in Baltimore and has some older posters of the skyline; he loved how he could pick out the specific skyscrapers of his home city! It was beautifully constructed and the wood was contrasted between city and sky, showing the grains wonderfully.
My boyfriend went to school in Philadelphia and misses the city a lot. I bought him the large skyline after reading reviews that the small skyline was a bit too small for hanging up. In all honesty, I wish there was a third even larger option or that this was a bit larger, but it shows nice detail and will work fine hanging on the wall. I haven't been to philly, so I can't say if the skyline is accurate, but my boyfriend could tell what it was. Overall, I'm happy with this purchase and he was excited and surprised to receive the unique piece!
Simple but high quality. The wood grain is beautifully highlighted in this piece, and the slab of wood used is a thick, heavy slab. I ordered the Austin landscape and gave it to my husband as a Christmas gift. He loved it and was immediately looking for that perfect place to display it in our home. Highly recommend!
I ordered two skylines ; London and Chicago. Chicago is excellent. London is not quite as good. My husband loves them. They are pretty small so don't plan on filling any big spaces with it.
Ordered San Antonio skyline profile as a gift for my father. The product looks great! Shipped quickly and I was well informed of the entire process from ordering to shipping and delivery. Very happy with product.
