Driftwood Effect House Signs and Name Plates

These are very unusual and really do show the beauty of the grain. The letters are protected by special rubber stencil and the background is sand blasted away leaving the driftwood effect. We normally use oak but can use sapele (similar to mahogany) or iroko (similar to teak)  Oak has the most pronounced driftwood grain effect but the least depth to the letters. We usually finish with a long life satin varnish or we can protect the signs with either Danish Oil or Osmo Oil. The background on iroko can be left untreated as this timber does contain natural oil.

Lettering
The letters are slightly raised above the driftwood effect background. Colours - Black, Brown, Ivory and Green. We can use most common fonts - for a selection CLICK HERE   For this type of sign it is best to used a bold font without any thin lines or tails.
