This is one of the older styled Back door friends signs I created and it has the back-to-back preening swans on top of the carved panel. This is a perfect piece to hang on your back door or gate to show that you truly appreciate your friends and neighbors...!
All my work is completely hand carved from 3/4" pine and then finished with acrylic paints for the body of the sign and swans.Other than using a band saw for the preliminary outline work I never use any power tool to complete my pieces.
The 2 pieces are joined securely with metal brackets. Bright gold enamel paint is then applied to the letters for great visibility. A coat of clear polyurethane is sprayed on the completed sign to make sure it will last a long time if you hang it outdoors.... There is a serrated hanging bracket on the rear for mounting..
Every piece I create is signed and dated.

Additional policies

Please contact me directly about any custom work you may need. I will send a sketch of the sign for you to approve and post it for sale on my site. Any existing piece can be made in other colors and copy if desired, or new signs can be created to your needs.
I have several hundred patterns I use as the basic profile of my pieces. The profile is transferred onto the wood and then cut out with a band saw. ...Beyond that power tool every single bit of wood is removed using drawknives, spokeshaves, chisels and knives which I have mostly made from scratch. This means every piece will be slightly different, so please take that into account. I try to repeat the look of every item to the previous one I made but there will be differences. Any of the items you see can be custom made to your specifications.
