Black Oak Hanging Sign and Post

This double sided reflective sign with black oak frame and post looked amazing. Up to now we always treated the posts in Osmo or Danish Oil leaving a natural oak finish. It seemed sacrilege to cover the oak in black preservative. However we were wrong – it looks fantastic – far superior to a black softwood post. The sign is attached to the post using a hand made wrought iron bracket with a top scroll added. For more details –

Hi Anne

Just a quick note to say thank you very much for getting my sign delivered on time.  It arrived at 11 for a presentation at 1.00 – perfect timing!  Everyone loved it and hopefully it will amuse people for many years to come.

Many thanks again to you and all your team.

CNC Router has arrived at last

At last our new CNC router has arrived. We really needed this a while ago but it is such an expensive bit of kit. However been lucky enough to get a grant for expanding the business we were able to afford it. We will now be able to engrave much large signage and make all kinds of interesting shaped signs. Wooden and corian sign blanks and backing boards will be soon be available for other sign makers.  We are also hoping to create a new range of personalised wooden gifts.

I am simply writing to express our thanks and appreciation for the production and delivery of the wheel cover with fisherman on it. My father-in-law drives around in his aged Discovery pleased as punch with his very smart and distinctive wheel cover.
