If you’re looking to install a long-lasting honours board, we can help you create a real talking point. Our engraved wooden honours boards are handmade from solid, long-lasting hardwood and made to your exact specification by experienced craftsmen. Whether you’re a sports club, council, church or company, we’ll create the perfect honours board in timeless oak to celebrate your people of note.
You can choose from a range of traditional honours boards shapes, including rectangle, apex, hill and slope, in any size you require. You can also commission a bespoke board shape and size. We can create tailored flourishes, frames and architectural elements to make your design completely unique – just get in touch and tell us what you’d like.
We can engrave your honours board with a title, organisation name, coat of arms, logo, or whatever you’d like. For the name lettering we can engrave existing names and finish them in a hand-painted colour of your choice. To ensure your honours board design is exactly as you imagined, we can provide a 3D preview before we begin. We’ll email you the preview, you give us the OK and we get to work.
Our handcrafted honours boards are made from solid American Oak or English Oak, with the English Oak sourced just 25-miles from our Surrey Hills workshop. Each piece of wood is hand-picked for quality and only ever comes from the ‘heartwood’ – the centre and most flawless section of a tree. We never use veneer.
The majority of this wood is then Quarter Sawn to create a strong, warp-resistant structure that creates a ribbon-like pattern across your honours board, making for an impressive display.
Take a look at these stunning engraved wooden honours boards. As many of you will know, we have been making engraved wooden wall plaques for many years. We have taken on a huge amount of special commissions from all over the world. From schools, businesses, borough councils, The Armed Forces, The National Trust, The Beatrix Potter Foundation, The J.R.R Tolkien Trust, The Telegraph, British food events and many private customers and also many Royal Openings. We have now put together a great range of stunning personalised honours boards made in exactly the same way and with the same care and attention to detail.
All of our bespoke honours boards are of the finest quality and unlike anything you’ll find elsewhere on the market. Each one is handcrafted from our locally sourced solid Superior Grade English Oak, from scratch, to order, in our Surrey Hills workshop. A very important feature about our engraved wooden honours boards is that they are made completely from solid hardwood timbers in order for us to carve the lettering. Each honours board will be completely solid timber throughout, no MDF or manmade materials are used. The plaque board themselves are thick, durable and will last for many many years to come. For American Black Walnut please contact us for a price.
Unlike other honours boards you have probably seen that have stencilled stick on lettering or painted lettering, our oak honours boards feature beautiful carved, engraved lettering that will never fade or come off. It is there forever. From here you can have the lettering paint filled or simply left as a carving, whichever you prefer. All of our boards are finished in Superior Grade Danish oil included in the price which brings out the natural colour of the timber and naturally darkens the carved lettering.
Once you have placed your order, please send us your inscription by email. If you have any questions regarding your inscription or layout, please get in touch.
As well as engraved lettering, we can also carve emblems or logos, special fonts, motifs and crests to order. These will be 3D deep carvings. If you would prefer your logo or crest in coloured stencils, we can have these made. All we need is the artwork and we will do the rest.
Our honours boards are all completely hand sanded and finished in Superior Grade Danish Oil or you can choose to have our harder wearing Diamond Coating for outside use.
All honours boards can be fitted with our invisible screw head fixings on the back, so there will be no screws or fittings on show once it’s up.
