I sometimes carve signs and am happy to take on public or private commissions
What I am offering would make a
very unique impression on anyone approaching your property
My skills are interpreting the natural world in images
that flow together to make a coherent design. This can be as divers
exploration of a whole habitat for public sculpture or a small motif around the border
of a private house sign
I can add writing in the form of hand cut letters.
They are cut to a V profile and then painted with black enamel type paint
which works very well outside. I do not use a router.
I use oak - either seasoned for smaller signs or green
for large more rustic pieces. The sign is finally coated with Danish
oil and can be recoated periodically or allowed to slowly fade to silver
A price guide is that large intricate panels may be
£800 - £1,500 but smaller house signs with less complex carving would be
around £200-£300 depending on wood costs and time involved.
