State Your Business

Signwork makes up most of my custom woodburning orders; small/medium art signs that state their business.





Using salvaged signboards that once said "Welcome Friends" or "Home Sweet Home" makes it possible for a wide variety of shapes. Each signboard has to be stripped and sanded to prepare for woodburning.



Repurposing the boards and giving them a new life is part of my creedo: to take forgotten and abandonded woodcrafts and give them an Old World style.






My customers make selections along the way for the message, the lettering, the artwork, embellishments, hardware and finish---so the sign will suit their purposes exactly! We work through the layout with drafts, to get the right proportions and space.







Whether it's a fanciful flourish, Calligraphy or Gothic, the lettering is one of my best burning skills. Decorative, illuminated and stylish----it delivers the message with a distinctive quality.




So, hang a shingle and set up shop!
