Commemorative hand-carved breadboards and wooden kitchenware

Pub Shed Sign.

Posted on

I was contacted by Charlotte in the Spring and asked if I could create a Pub Shed Sign as a secret present for her Husband. She supplied the artwork.

She liked the idea of a natural edge sign about 12" (30cms) across with black lettering and deep relief carving of the central design. I glued 3 pieces of Oak together to create the blank for the sign, then started  carving it.

This is stage one with the design on the blank.

In stage two I used a Router to remove the central background.The rest of the carving was done by hand using traditional tools and techniques.

Stage two, background routed away.

Ready for painting and oiling, it was fun to do!

"It’s for our house – my husband Ben has turned his shed into a (very basic) pub. It’s a bit of a thing between a few friends, with a record player and bar etc. I thought it would be fun to have a proper sign outside. This is perfect....."

Testimonials
Dear Steve, I received the breadboard in plenty of time for my anniversary date as promised. I would like to say a special thank you to you for the efficient service but most of all for the fantastic breadboard. The craftmanship that has gone into this is magnificant. The quality and overall presentation is the best I have seen for a very long time. I can tell you have spent a lot of effort and time producing this lovely gift. My wife loved the present - something we can keep for a very very long time. I will recommend you to my friends and family - however the workmanship speaks for itself. Thanks once again.
