The plaque itself is made from a single solid piece of superior grade English Oak, fitting to a substantial solid oak post at 45 degrees.
If you want a wooden burial marker that is of superior quality, with an exceptional finish, you will not be disappointed with our memorial markers. These really are the finest engraved wooden grave markers available on the market.
As with everything we do here at Make Me Something Special, we have spent the time researching and sourcing the perfect materials available. Each oak memorial plaque is handmade from one piece of Air Dried Superior Grade English Oak. This Timber is perfectly seasoned and adjusted for outdoor conditions. You can choose to leave your plaque 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.
Please Note: It is always worth checking with the cemetery or natural burial site about what they allow with regards to size of memorial plaque and finish.
