laminate our own cottage sign blanks from hand picked western red
cedar paying close attention to the direction of the grain in each
piece of lumber to maintain the natural flow of the grain in the
sign blank. It is then glued up using marine grade outdoor glue
and placed in a clamp for 24 hours to ensure strength and durability.
These blanks are carefully made into whatever dimension is required
for the sign being made. Making our own sign blanks enables us to
eliminate the middleman, the savings are then passed on to you,
WE USE CEDAR FOR OUR COTTAGE SIGNS
make our sign blanks from number 1 clear cedar because many years of experience
has taught us that it is the most durable wood available for outdoor applications.
Cedar has a natural water repellent property that makes it the clear choice for
outdoor use and longevity in the most extreme of conditions.
the sign blank has been sandblasted, multiple coats of
sealer are applied to the wood to seal out the elements. The signs
are then hand painted according to your specifications with high
quality sign paints. No additional sealing is required as the paint
is the final sealer. Due to this meticulous process the lead time
for sign completion is 4 to 6 weeks upon receipt of a deposit. The
time and care invested in each sign built by us will guarantee its
longevity and beauty in the most extreme conditions.
sandblasted Canadian western red cedar cottage signs are considered to be the
finest that money can buy. They are found in cottages and homes all over the cottage
areas of central Ontario and have been shipped all over North America. We meld
sandblasting, carving and artistry into a 3D “work of Art”.
Cedar is a rot-resistant
wood, when sandblasted it reveals the beautiful grain of the wood
which makes these signs so appealing.
