Extra Treatment Oil

Order extra oil to keep on treating your signs



All our signs are made from hand picked Prime A Grade European Oak, the text is carved out using our CNC machine creating the perfect finish. Please note that as Oak is a natural timber the grain will vary from sign to sign. In European oak you will get a variety of grain changes, muldullary rays and small knots.

* Sizes of 400mm+ wide will be constructed of two planks glued together, a small joint line will be visible on the outside edge.

A CAD drawing will be emailed after you placed your order to show exactly how your sign will look, once this has been approved we cannot accept returns.


We have selected the most commonly asked fonts as an easy option to pick from, however if you would like a font we have not got listed then please get in contact to see if we have it available. Images of the fonts to chose from are in the image gallery to view.

Please be aware, the more text you have the smaller it becomes, so choose the correct size!

Painted Text

With this option, not only do we still carve the timber, we then apply 2 coats of enamel sign writing paint into the engraved text. Black painted text is the most visible option to stand out against the colour of oak. The gold option is visible but not suited for smaller signs with smaller engraved letters.

* Due to the natural behaviour of timber, the paint can bleed into the surface of the sign. We use an end grain sealer to try and stop this as much as we can. If the bleeding is not clearly visible from 1m distance, then we deem this to be fine and not grounds for a return or remake.



Ours signs are treated with Rubio Monocoat to give protection from the elements.

  • Ultimate Protection
  • ECO Friendly
  • 0% VOC, does not contain any water or solvents
  • Maintenance with the same product.┬áNo need for sanding!
  • Added advanced protection available – with Rubio Monocoat Hybrid Sunprimer

Please note:

The pigment in various RMC Hybrid Wood Protector colours contributes to the protection of the wood from greying. The colour Pure (clear) is NOT pigmented, which will cause the natural greying to occur in exterior environments.


Our signs can come with a choice of ways to hang your signs. No screws are provided at this time.

Pre Drilled Holes – Pre Drilled hole space is generally 20x20mm in from each corner on 120/150/180 & 240mm high signs. On the 70 & 95mm signs the pre drilled screw holes are centered.

Hidden Keyhole Brackets – If you choose keyhole brackets for flush easy fitting, simply screw 2 or 4 screws (dependant on height of the sign) in the wall that the sign will be mounted and slide the sign onto the screws. (they need to protrude out slightly to fit into the keyhole brackets).

The width of the screws need to be the following;

150mm wide sign, 100mm spacing

180mm wide sign, 140mm spacing

300mm wide sign, 200mm spacing

400mm wide sign, 300mm spacing

500mm wide sign 400mm spacing

600mm wide sign 500mm spacing

700mm wide sign 600mm spacing



Each post comes with one end pointed, so you can either have the pointed end in the ground or above the sign as a pyramid top.

The softwood posts are tanalised and the oak posts are treated with the same oil as the signs.

We do not fix the posts to the sign due to problems with shipping and also to allow your own personal choice of fixing height.


Due to timber being a natural product, it will require to be treated on a regular basis to help keep it in prime condition. All our signs come pre treated but will still require further treatment.

If your sign cracks/warps or turns grey we can not be held responsible for this, as wood is a natural product. It may do this once exposed to sun and the weather.


Refreshing the colour and protection of wood treated with RMC Hybrid Wood Protector is done with the same product, in the original colour. Sanding will not be necessary!


01. Clean the surface with water. Allow to dry.

02. Apply the oil. (If you have painted text, especially white, avoid getting oil onto this as this could affect the colour of the paint).

03. Allow a few minutes to react.

04. Remove any excessive oil.


Morrells Danish Oil – All signs purchased prior to June 1st 2020

Depending on the location of your sign, the finish will require toping up as danish oil builds up a barrier of layers to protect from the elements.


01. Clean the surface with water. Allow to dry.

02. Depending on the age of your sign, light sanding may be required. 240grit or above, in the same grain direction to avoid scratches.

02. Apply the oil, with a rag. (If you have painted text, especially white, avoid getting oil onto this as this could affect the colour of the paint).

03. Allow a few minutes to react.

04. Remove any excessive oil.

05. Allow to dry for a few hours, then re apply again.

The wooden house name sign, to be fixed to a gate is exactly what we wanted. The order, service and delivery were faultless. Thank you

Mary H.
Lovely product

Good experience from start to finish. Good illustrations on the website to assist with choices, easy ordering, fast turnaround of the order and received exactly what we were expecting, well packaged for protection. One very happy customer!

Graham D.
Good service and Good product

I needed a new hanging house name sign with the name engraved on both sides of oak and treated for weather protection. Hartwood timber provided rapid responses to my queries and their website enabled me to order a sign exactly to my needs. When I saw their preview illustration I wanted to change a detail and that was no problem. The sign was delivered within the agreed timescale and was of the quality expected. I cannot comment on the durability of the sign since it is not yet even installed but the finish gives me confidence for the future.

I cannot comment on price because I sought out a supplier that could provide what I wanted, physically and technically, rather than looking for a cheap supplier (but I expect that 'you get what you pay for'!)

House sign

Excellent service from start to finish. Online form was good to use, then confirmation photo of the order. Delivered when expected and very pleased with the end result. I cannot fault them at all. Would definitely use them again and will recommend them to anyone who needs a wooden sign

Excellent signs

We ordered a sign for our house. Excellent customer service when ordering, good to see a design before confirming the order. Fast delivery and excellent quality. So good our neighbour ordered one as soon as they saw it! Would recommend absolutely.

Great product - even better service

I ordered a number of signs for my home and was very happy with the quality of the product which was beautifully finished and made from excellent materials. However, the reason for writing this review (I rarely do so) was to praise the company for their excellent and courteous service. It turned out that the text I choose would not easily fit the sign size. They contacted me to check that I was okay going with a larger sign to which I agreed. However the real surprise was that when I asked them to send me a bill for the upgrade they told me they would include it in the original order value. This was a decent saving and I felt a very kind gesture worth sharing.
