  • supplies help please

    HI

    I'd like to try a find supplies of wood suitable for house signs - can anyone help.
    I really want to make my brother a fantastic birthday present and he's been on about how his house sign is so rubbish - I thought I could replace it for him

    and another couple of questions
    What do you varnish it with so it's weather proof, and whats the best way of attaching it - is it drilled holes and long screws into the brickwork?

    Any help gratefully received, it's his birthday on 19th this month so by time I source the wood, I might be writing him an IOU! lol

    Many thanks

    hi Fiona Have a look at the following web site.

    www.dalescraft.com They do a range of plaques in vsrying shapes and sizes.
    I can personally recommend the sycamore blanks, as I have purchased some of these, and they are very good quality, and nice to work with.

    cheers

      OOoooooo yes, many thanks
      I like dalescraft. I can't believe I didn't think of that. I've had a look - I quite like some of the chunkier plaques on there.
      However, I had in mind the plaques that looked like a piece of sawed off tree trunk (I don't know how else to describe it) If I can't find anything like that then I'll use dalescraft

      I was just looking at the craft projects thread - the plaques I was trying to describe are the ones like nader is using - only I won't be doing anything nearly as good as his plaques - just the house number for my brother! lol - bless - he'll still be impressed with my efforts (though quite measly compared to the other talents on here!)

        Heya

        If you're still looking, I think that Nader sells them.

        And I think that The Big Wood do, too...

          many thanks
          I did find some to work with.
          here's my finished attempts - the one I made for my brother is at the beginning of the thread, then someone commissioned one!! which is near the end of the thread.

            Yes ask Nader, I have just placed an order with him, although he did tell me that he has just dislocated his shoulder (ouch) !
