This timber is an interesting alternative to oak due to it similar appearance. Grown in the South West and sourced from our local timber yard. The timber has a very dense grain, giving for an interesting appearance. It is not as structurally strong as oak, but for signs this is not something to worry about. A further benefit to this timber is that it can be left untreated, and in doing so will weather to a lovely silver colour.

Driftwood Effect
If you are after something a little bit different, or love seeing the grain of the timber, then these driftwood effect signs are just right for you. The letters are kept in place while the background is sanded away. This exaggerates the grain of the timber, making for a beachy/rustic sign. Oak is one of the most successful timbers for this but others are available.
