Hi, I'm Andrew
These unique personalised wooden signs are custom made with care in my workshop.
My signs are finished & shaped by hand
using the best sustainable timbers
then posted to your door.
Please note, in 2021 I am taking a short break to focus on some important tasks. This business started online in 2004 and I have been answering emails every day since then. Being a one-man business with 17 years of endless questions and quotes (and even less time to do actual woodworking), has finally had its toll on my personal life, my faith and my family relationships. I will answer all emails and complete existing orders eventually when I return to normal hours of operation.
If you have paid for an order and are sick of waiting for your sign to be made and delivered please let me know and I will issue a full refund. My apologies. Thanks for your understanding. Regards Andrew.
There are many people worse off than us and I need your help. When I'm not woodworking I'm walking the streets. If you would like to support my work and help the oppressed on the streets in the Gippsland area please make a small donation. Every bit helps, I will use the money to buy coffee and food for the homeless & addicted and offer some hope where I can.
There's more to life than work!
Cedar signs are recommended for outdoors due to its extreme long life out in the weather here in Aus.
- House signs
- Family name signs
Huge variety of fonts your for wooden sign or timber plaque - Pics below
Do I deliver?
Yes I deliver through Australia Post
- Large signs longer than 950mm need to go by courier.
- Established online in 2004 -
The original website for beautiful hand made wooden signs.
- Rustic timber signs, some are scorched with flame,
(just select option when ordering).
- Colour variation in photos is due to natural timber variation & also the angle of the sun in my backyard where the photo was taken.
- NZ Pine & Victorian Ash is a bit lighter in colour.
Cedar is best for outdoors.
Are you searching for gift ideas?
These unique signs are perfect, they will enjoy their sign for many years to come. I've received feedback from many happy customers and the gift recipient is always delighted to receive them.
- Signs can be Burnt/Scorched with Flame to add even more rustic appeal.
- Solid timber - Long Lasting Western Red Cedar, Victorian Ash or Pine.
- We use Sustainable Plantation Timber only.
- Timber is made to look rustic & weathered but smooth to touch.
- 3D Lettering characters and pictures are carved deep into the timber then painted.
How long do they take to make?
- A very common question!
It depends how many are on the list first and how many I am posting out each week at the time of ordering.
- There is currently a 7 week backlog for my custom signs, I also make boxes and other custom made items which can sometimes keep me really busy.
But my order is urgent!
> If there are other customers on the list who have already paid then it's unfair to make them wait too much longer.
(e.g. Please don't waste my time asking for a quote & sign example only to tell me you need it to arrive in WA by this weekend.)
Can you get it to me sooner?
- Let me know when you need it & the State to be delivered.
I can sometimes move your job up the list!
- You must let me know the required date and the State you are in when ordering.
How much do your signs cost?
They are custom made to order, all different.
Sign price guide << please be aware they aren't cheap, especially if you want extras, difficult pictures that require editing or a large sign.
What sizes do you make?
Please see the price-size guide
Do you supply screws or chain and links for hanging the sign?
No, we don't supply hardware, but we can supply Screw Eyes if requested on the form.
For all hardware items please visit your local hardware store as there are many different options depending on where and how it is being hung.

Reviews & Testimonials
We received our timber sign this week. We are extremely happy with it.
Regards Kim – 17th April 2016
Hello Andrew and Natasha,
The Dunwurkin sign arrived a half hour ago – I am absolutely thrilled with it – and have previewed it outside with the Sanctuary sign you crafted for me. Have attached updated photos.
I’m going to have to make myself wait until 5 Aug when hubby retires before it gets put back up.
Best wishes and continued success
Regards Lyn McLernon – 30th May 2016
I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with the sign you have made. It is better than what I had expected. Your skill and attention to detail as resulted in a beautiful birthday gift that I can now give to someone close to me.
Please let me know if there is a way that I can provide positive feedback via your website for other potential customers to view.
Kind regards, Sam – 22 June 2016

Andrew was a caring and thoughtful professional from start to finish. He intuitively understood what I was looking for and sensitively made some suggestions around design of signs for a special space for my husband. He responded to any queries promptly and went out of his way to investigate different options for us. Andrew was enthusiastic about the project. I was also very reassured by his ethical approach to business.
