Carved signs, gifts and memorials

Carved signs, memorials, gifts and other lettering make up a large number of the commissions that I undertake. Depending on what is required, some are produced using traditional hand tools whereas others are engraved by hand using a small electric drill.

Unlike companies that use computer-controlled letter cutting machines I can carve onto uneven and unusual surfaces and, in contrast to many other businesses, I always use ethically-sourced timbers. I can also hand carve and paint any image that you would like to accompany your text.

The signs aren’t necessarily as cheap as computer-produced ones but they are genuinely hand made by a craftsman, so I have to charge a little more rather than compromise on quality.

Although most signs are carved from oak, as it is beautiful and durable outdoors, I’m very happy to carve other suitable timbers and to advise on which kinds are best suited to a particular commission.
