Wooden House Name Signs using English Oak

The English oak has a magnificent splendour all of its own, with stunning variations in grain, texture and colour and often small pin knots and burrs are an attractive feature. English oak is exceedingly strong, heavy and durable. If maintained correctly it will last a lifetime and we can all enjoy the benefits of its strength and sturdiness.

The engraved oak signs we produce are of superior quality. Even large oak signs for schools and businesses we manufacture are put together with rigorous attention to detail. Each section of the sign plaque are reinforced with internal hardwood dowelling making sure they do not come apart. The joins are colour matched and sanded through multi belt drum sanders giving a perfectly plat surface.


Once we attached the post and apply our finish, all by hand, you get a feel of what we can achieve as a company, though a very small family run business, the work we produce is without doubt extraordinary. Every surface is silky smooth and treated either with Superior Danish Oil or our low mainatance Diamond Coating finish. The lettering can be left plain or paint filled with acrylic paint. Our standard colours are Black, White and Grey but we can use any number of colours if required. engraved-wooden-signs-for-sale-makemesomethingspecial.com

Rustic Wooden House Signs:

Bespoke Oak House Signs

These Waney Edge rustic wooden house signs, made from one piece solid oak feature the tree natural edge with the bark still left on if we can. A classic oak house sign with a drift wood appearance. Comes with our invisible fixings too.

If you like that natural feel, the natural edge of the tree is a striking eye catching feature. Personally I love a live edge oak sign, it makes a wooden sign that more interesting and unique. We can create rustic oak house signs for wall hanging and free standing on posts.


Note the oak sign post on the left is taller than on the right to work with this rustic natural edge house sign irregular shape.

Carved motifs like trees, butterflies and other additions can be included as an optional extra. We can carve most things, we have around 3000 carvings on file to choose from. However we offer a complete bespoke service when it comes to makes wood house signs, so unique additions, fonts, logos, crests, coats of arms can be included.
