These Wooden House Signs are the perfect way to add a personal touch to your home. Made from top quality timbers, they are 20mm thick and come in a variety of sizes and designs. They can be painted or oiled to suit your tastes, and come with pre-drilled or keyhole fixings for easy installation. They also come with a CAD drawing sent for confirmation prior to cutting, so you can be sure they will be perfect. These signs are sure to make an impact on anyone who sees them, so why not give your home that personal touch with a Wooden House Sign?


All our Oak is Prime A Grade European Oak. 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.


Iroko timber, also known as African teak, is a dense hardwood native to tropical Africa. Its heartwood ranges from yellow to golden or medium brown, darkening over time. Resistant to decay, Iroko is popular for outdoor applications like decking and boat-building. It’s durable, strong, and has a coarse texture with interlocked grain.


Abodo, is a thermally treated pine. The thermal modification process means Abodo has enhanced stability, reduced resin content, is a beautiful homogenous brown colour, and is naturally durable.

Further info;

Sizes of 300mm+ high in oak and Iroko will be constructed of two planks glued together, a small joint line will be visible on the outside edge.

Sizes of 240mm+ high in abodo 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!

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.All our paint is Zinsser allcoat paint mixed to Farrow and Ball colours or stock colours.


All our internal signs are treated with Rubio Monocoat Oilplus 2C

External – oiled

All our external oiled signs are tread with Rubio Monocoat Woodcream Transparent.


We use Zinnser All Coat paints that are mixed to Farrow & Ball Colours.

Our signs can come with a choice of ways to hang your signs.

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.

Right angle brackets – These fixings allow the signs to be mounted within two posts.

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).

Closed eye hooks, we set these at 50mm in from each end. If you want different spacing let us know.

Open eye hoooks, we set these at 50mm in from each end. If you want different spacing let us know.

We recommend that if you choose to install signs yourself without fixings options by Hartwood Timber. Then fix the signs to a secure solid wall/post with fixings in each corner to ensure stability. Using wall stand offs, is also advised to stop any water being trapped behind the sign. Our pre drilled and hidden fixing options both come with A4 Marine grade screws and wall stand offs. A2 or A4 stainless crews must be used at all times with Oak to ensure black/purple tannin stains do not occur.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 the sun and the weather.

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.

Please note the order date of your sign as we have changed the products we use on the sign over the years to improve our service and quality of signs.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 the sun and the weather.

Sian B.
Sign for aviary

Really impressed with service and quality of product. Would definitely order from this company again. Beautiful job!

Kenneth W.
House sign

I was delighted with the overall quality of the finished sign. The letter form I had selected was deeply cut and completed with a black infill. All of this was cut into a slab of oak which added to the feeling of design excellence and permanence.
I would have no hesitation in going back to wooden house signs for any future projects.

Pippa S.
Excellent from start to finish

I contacted Hartwood about a sign for our church lychgate. Sarah was quick to respond and advise on the best solution for our needs.
Great communication throughout with quick delivery. The sign is beautifully made, and we often get comments about how it fits so well within our church grounds.

Mike &.L.
Driveway Sign

5* quality and service. The bespoke driveway sign we ordered was perfect. Exactly what we wanted including our logo. Excellent craftmanship. Would not hesitate to use you again and will recommend you to others.
