Why not take the opportunity to purchase an affordable wooden sign/plaque carefully crafted at our workshop situated in the Coed Ceiriog Wood Centre on the North Wales / Shropshire border.

From a simple house number sign to a house name plaque, personal name plates, warning or direction signs, a humorous one-liner or a memorial plaque - the possibilities are endless.

And if you're keen on adding your own personal touch or saving yourself some costs, why not colour and finish the sign/plaque in your own time. The DIY section gives a few tips if you need them.

The signs are carved using an attractive 2.25 inch letter/numeral styling.

You may want the traditional and robust native Oak, but also available are other wood species i.e. Yew, Cherry, Beech, Ash or Pine. Additionally, there's a choice of edging profile:- Square, Cove, Ovolo, Bevel with a variety of paint colour and finish options.

  DIY Section

Many of our customers are keen on adding their personal touch to the sign or plaque. In fact some of the signs e.g. internal, look very attractive in their machined condition. A coat of oil would be sufficient.

For signs/plaques that will be exposed to the elements we have the following recommendations:-

Colouring Type and Application - There are many possibilities in this area. For signs which will be exposed to the weather, ensure that external quality materials are used. One option is, using a small brush, apply wood stain or oil based paint for wood. Alternatively for something subtle, use a shade of wood dye darker than the wood itself. Another possibility is to use a paint spray and after drying, sand the sign with a belt sander (this can be difficult on Oak and Ash as they both have an open grain and would require extensive sanding).

Finish Type and Application - One of the easiest finishes is oil. Use several coats of either Danish Oil or Teak Oil. If varnish is your preferred option several coats of Yacht Varnish or external quality Polyurethane (Gloss, Satin or Matt) Varnish should be used.

Like most natural products, care must taken in order to maintain the natural beauty, look and feel of the product. Wooden signs will benefit from an occasional polish. If an oil finish has been used, we recommend a new application annually. On varnished signs, a fresh coat of varnish every few years will help protect the wood.
