Create your own personalised engraved wooden sign. A lovely gift for garden lovers or for people who have a special room or space.
I design and make these beautiful engraved wooden signs here in my workshop in Derbyshire. The style was inspired by retro American signs and I have given it a modern twist.
Choose your own words and create a unique present for Mothers' Day, a special birthday, a new home gift or a personalised wedding gift.
Add a name and a room or a place then your own special phrase - a family saying or perhaps a phrase which sums up the recipient.
My retro-inspired signs are made from hardwood which I paint then engrave through, revealing the natural wood below. Danish oil is then applied, protecting the sign and creating a soft sheen.
My bespoke engraved wooden signs will sit happily on a shelf and have a purpose-made keyhole slot in the back so they can be hung flush to the wall. If you want to hang your sign outdoors, or want to hang it on a door knob, you have the option to opt for a wire rope hanger instead of the keyhole slot. The hanger is weatherproof and rot proof so your sign will hang happily outdoors.
If you plan to hang your sign outside permanently, it will benefit from an application of danish oil from time to time to protect it. If you prefer, you can simply let your sign weather and age to create a vintage look.
