In 2021 I am shifting focus a little.


Scripture warns that the enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy and this is exactly what is happening to our young men - anxiety, porn addiction, suicide and confusion.

graphical representation of suicide rates australia
As you can see the suicide rate for young Australian men is at an all time high.

There are many people worse off than us and we need your help.  When I'm not woodworking or answering endless emails I'm trying to learn more about how we can help those in need. If you would like to support this work please consider a donation to https://www.yfc.org.au/lost_boys

Some people just need the support of a friend, someone to show they care.

Or you can also donate here and I will forward the money on to those who are helping to fight this problem head on.

Learn more about the Victorian Suicide rate here and watch this on Sky News.

Various shapes and sizes available for your very own custom made sign.

Cedar signs are recommended for outdoors due to its extreme long life out in the weather here in Aus.

  • 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 2 month backlog for my custom wooden signs,
    I am involved in other projects 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. Cedar signs usually cost between $260-$340 custom made to order.

  • What sizes do you make?

Reviews & Testimonials


Hi Andrew.
We received our timber sign this week. We are extremely happy with it.
Thank you
Regards Kim – 17th April 2016

Lyn McLernon

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

Samantha Cole

Hi Andrew,
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.

Thank you.

Kind regards, Sam – 22 June 2016

(asked to be anonymous)
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.
