The wooden signs are made from pine or fir and the standard size is 145mm x 80mm (5 1/2 inches x 3 inches) The writing is done with a pyrography tool (woodburner). Signs can be made to order, they do not have to be funny, Jim has done bedroom / office / door plaques, house signs, numbers, pictures etc. The standard finish is a coat of interior grade varnish, but extra coats of exterior varnish can be arranged. Each sign comes with 2 pre-drilled holes for screw fixing and flexible wire for hanging.
Jim began woodworking nearly 30 years ago, on a small drill powered lathe in the living room, with the noise and the shavings it was not encouraged! 2 burnt out drills and a house move later saw a decent lathe in the garage and work began in earnest.
Soon friends and family were overflowing with gifts and so selling began. Jim has had pieces in many shops, galleries, exhibitions and fairs both in England and France. Commission work can be carried out for private and trade clients.
