Review – Wooden Sign

Dear team
Would just like to say thank you for a very professional service and product received from your company. From the promptly returned telephone call to the craftsmanship and dedicated staff to get my order out. It was very “refreshing” to speak to a company that was very willing to help. We seem to live in a nation of complaints so feel it only right that you should be complimented for doing a “good job”  when truly due.

Large Wooden Signs

At our workshops in Devon, we have a barn full of racks of timber in varying thickness and types. Here we create the wooden sign blanks and anything from small wooden house signs to massive wood business signage.

The most popular timber for wooden signs is Oak and in our opinion, it is the most beautiful timber. The timbers normally used for large signs are; Oak, Red Cedar, Iroko, Sapele or Douglas Fir.

Review for Engraved sign

Good morning Louise

I have viewed the proof : Ref # 1711-SE-045 and it is correct.

Please go ahead with the order.

Are you able to email me please, when the order is completed and due to be posted out to Newport Gwent.

As, I would like to email the supervisor, at the park, that the plaque is on its way.

I must add so far, the service you and your company have offered has been impressive! To make these arrangements from a vast distance is daunting, however, you have made it happen with ease, THANK YOU.

Kind regards


Memorial Cross


Our Wooden Memorial crosses can be made in different woods – Iroko, Opepe or Sapele. The Oak and Sapele are then normally finished using our long-lasting satin varnish, Iroko and Opepe with Danish Oil. We can also supply with a square end instead of a stake for wall mounting.


The lettering can be engraved directly into the wood.


Alternatively, you can mount an engraved plaque on the cross.


We make our wooden crosses in six sizes.

Small Memorial Cross– 355mm high, 200mm wide, timber width – 40mm

Medium Memorial Cross– 460mm high, 225mm wide, timber width – 50mm

Large Memorial Cross– 575mm high, 300mm wide, timber width – 60mm

Extra Large Memorial Cross– 950mm high, 440mm wide, timber width – 85mm

Extra Extra Large Memorial Cross– 1050mm high, 440mm wide, timber width – 85mm

Mega Memorial Cross– 960mm high, 520 wide, timber width – 140mm



As always we have a huge range or fonts and images to chose from to give your memorial that perfect personal touch.

Finding the right words for a memorial plaque can be difficult, so we have also put together a page of Memorial Inscriptions.

More Trees being Planted

We have just been planting more trees around the wildlife ponds – another 50 to be exact!

They include Alder, Lime, Wild Cherry, Aspen, Crab Apples and Silver Birch. They have all been chosen for the bees and other insects along with the birds.

Can’t wait until next spring to see them all come into leaf.
