  2. Client Review

    Hello Ben,

    My olive wood sign arrived safely today and I just wanted to let you know that I’m delighted – just what I’d wanted – thank you so much!

    More work to follow!

    Kind regards,

    Dear Ben,
    I have just received the house sign you have made for me. I am ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTED with it. Everything about it is perfect – the wood [the look (the grain and the colours) and the feel], the lettering (the styles and the sizes), the overall shape.
    Thank you so much. I am very happy to write a review on your website if you would like me to do so.
    Very kind regards,

    Dear Ben,

    Pretty Perfect
    I’ve been looking for a long time for a house sign that does my partner justice. He passed two years ago and now I am able to name our cottage in his honour with something amazingly special. The sign is simply quite, quite beautiful. Thank you.

    Best wishes


Finish: Untreated, Superior Danish Oil or Diamond Coating

Aftercare: Product maintenance is very important. If you have chosen your product to be left untreated, your product will fade to a pale silver in time. We recommend a pressure wash or a sand once a year to remove any moss or unwanted mess on the timber and then treat with an exterior oil to slow down decay.

Danish Oil – If you have chosen Danish oil we recommend you continue to treat your product with Danish oil or similar timber treatment oil to protect the timber and stop it drying out. This will also help to prevent staining, discolouration, cracking and warping.

Dimond Coating – If you have chosen Dimond Coating, top up kits can be purchased on our website or over the phone. We would recommend you treat your product once a year minimum. Twice a year if you want to maintain full protection.

About Timber: Natural timber will always want to move. It’s going to expand and shrink as the temperature and humidity changes in your home and outside, rest assured it won’t change drastically. Small hairline splits may occur as your product ages, this is completely normal and is regarded as part of the timbers natural beauty. As the seasons change you may see some movement in your product, again this is completely normal.

If you need any help or advise on how to maintain your product please contact us or consult your care guide.

Product Description: Engraved Rustic Olive Wood Signs

Our solid olive wood rustic signs for the home, business and shop displays.

If you are looking for that rustic look in a wooden sign, not made from the usual oak or walnut, here is an engraved wooden sign that has a stunning colour and beautiful grain structure. Ethically sourced from a sustainable olive wood farmer in Tunisia, we then shape the timber and finish it here in our Hampshire workshop by hand and engrave it to become these beautiful rustic wooden signs.

Each piece is completely unique, carved from a single piece of olive wood, with a grain pattern and colour that you will only see in a timber like olive wood. These signs do look stunning once on show. Like our Live Edge English Oak chopping Boards, these wooden olive signboards also feature one natural edge for that organic, rustic feel. Absolutely ideal as a display sign for an olive bar or deli shop sign.


We have 3 standard sizes to choose from but as with everything we do we can always source a large piece of olive wood to create a much larger wooden display sign if required.


All of our Engraved Wooden Signs come with our Invisible Screw Head fixings on the back of the sign, so there are no screws or fittings on display once up. If you are opting for engraved lettering on both sides of the sign, there are no fittings included. Hanging the sign will be down to the customer to fit.


As with everything we do here at Make Me Something Special, we have spent the time researching and sourcing the perfect materials available. Each engraved sign is handmade from solid Olive wood. You can choose to leave your sign untreated, finished in Superior Danish Oil or our low maintenance Diamond Coating finish. If you choose untreated your product will weather to a pale silver more quickly. Danish Oil will not only treat the timber but also bring out the timbers natural colour. This has a UV filter to protect the timber but it does require regular upkeep. 2 – 4 times a year to keep it looking its best. Diamond Coating is more glossy but a lot more harder wearing and only requires a top up once a year, however this depend on the weather and where the product is placed. We would recommend twice a year if you want full protection. Top up kits can be ordered over the phone or on our website – see here. 


Our wooden olive wood signs come with engraving on the front included in the cost. Depending on the size you choose will dictate the number of characters you can have. All engraved lettering is deeply carved and looks stunning due to the precision of how we cut the lettering. We would recommend you choose the painted lettering option as some olive boards grain is very figured and can detract from the lettering making it less visible.

You can choose either black, white or grey finish lettering. Three coats of weatherproof acrylic paint for both interior and exterior use.

You can also add carved symbols like hearts, stars and other engraved motifs like zodiac signs. Take a look at the options available to you – Engraving options.
