Custom Wood Sign

If you’re wondering how the order process works here’s a good example below.

If you require a simple sign with one line of text this can easily be ordered using the contact form under the heading Get a Quote… you may not even need to provide any more details than what is on the form.

If you need a larger than standard sign or any pictures, special details, delivery date required, let me know when ordering.

I will take it from there and send you a list of fonts to choose from.

Here’s a custom wood sign I made recently for a customer who lives in a small country town.
She wanted it to be a personalised gift for her husband…

“Everyone in town knows his Ute”
… she tells me
and sent through a few photos of his Ute
we then found a suitable pictures online to work from.

The Engraving Simulation below was sent to her for approval. The 3D simulation shows exactly what the engraving will look like carved into the timber and finished with matt black enamel paint. I can zoom in using the software to check if any of the pictures need to be fixed up before making your custom timber sign.

Here is the picture of the Ute and other design elements we worked from, his Ute had a cage on the back so I edited the image to suit, added the antenna to the front and spare wheel to the back of the Ute.  This was important because the people in town all recognise his Ute and she wanted it to be a personalised gift for his birthday.
He has an Australian cattle dog with him on his run and they keep chickens so these were added in to the image as well.  The tree picture was one I had used in a previous design.

She was very happy with the end result and the sign is now proudly on display at their front door.

Details for the signs I make

My Rustic Cedar signs feature a unique carved edge, this is done by me after engraving.  I prefer to shape my signs myself – no two are the same.  The beautiful grain in Cedar is highlighted by a tinted Decking Oil (made right here in Australia of course).  I’ve made quite a few signs for man caves, sheds, outdoor BBQ areas, even wood-fire pizza ovens which are becoming more popular than ever.  If you’ve been looking for a unique personalised gift for your husband and can’t quite figure out what to buy for ‘the man who has everything’ then join the list of happy customers and order beautiful handcrafted woodwork.

Please follow my blog if you would like to see more of what I make in future. I plan to put more projects up here as they are completed and also some flashbacks of interesting things I’ve been asked to make over the past 12 years so stay tuned.
