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.

Here at The Sign Maker, we offer a huge variety of fonts. This one is just beautiful and fits a beach theme perfectly! We have the best designers who will help you find that perfect design for your Sign, whatever you need it for.

Oak is a heavy wood and is also strong and durable. If maintained well, it will last a lifetime. Oak is a very traditional wood with a beauty all of its own. With great texture and colour makes a perfect choice for any house sign.

We do offer other hardwoods and they all have their own unique look.

Shaped wooden house signs and business signs are unique and beautiful!


We can make wood any size or shape. With our dedicated Carpenter and his apprentice in tow, nothing is impossible!

The most popular shape for Wooden House Signs is Oval and Round.
Heart shaped wood is used more for memorials or personal house signs like shed signs.


Archtop and other shaped wooden Signs tend to be used for Entrance signs to Farms or Businesses. Some of our entrance sign customers ask for a beautiful curved wooden support. We think this looks lovely!
