A while back I did this routed sign for a micro brewery up in Edinburgh. Douglas Fir was used and a chain supplied for attachment. Finished with a satin varnish.
I recently made this sign for a local cider producer, made in apple wood. Aptly so, as he not only makes award winning scrumpy Devon cider but also runs a local fruit tree nursery (Adams Apples) here in Devon.
If anyone is interested in getting a wooden sign made for a micro brewery please get in contact and I’ll be happy to advice on what’s available/possible. I may have some of this apple wood left that would suit any cider makers out there.
