When we were asked to design wooden monolith signs, our joiners designed three stunning timber signs. The signage needed to be sympathetic to the surroundings, reflect the local environment and offer a practical signage solution.
Wooden Totem/Monolith signs
We designed the wooden monolith and all the wooden signs into kit form. This is so the signage could be put together on site in minimal time, and with relative ease. We have since produced a similar kit for another sign company who required wooden monolith signs of their own.
However, this signage also included overhanging tray signs cut into the timber, together with laser cut acrylic lettering. (Some of the strokes on the text were cut as fine as 2mm). And some of the text needed to be applied direct to the timber facia.
Which Wood is Used on the Monolith?
Our client requested an Oak finish on the signs. We were able to create a similar colour and grain to Oak, from Idigbo. This timber is very stable and is hard enough to take fixings extremely well. Although the Idigbo doesn’t necessarily need to be treated, though it does add to its durability and stability if a coating is added. Call us to discuss which treatment is best for your wooden signage.
Double sided wooden monolith signs
Although both monolith signs were double sided, we also crafted a single sided version of the signs which could be attached to railings. Because this was a single sided wooden sign, the fixtures were finished on the back to a high standard, and painted to match the railings.
All the signs were finished with a timber capping to add further protection to the sign. Each sign being finished to the highest standards. The finishing includes Oak pellets to hide any fixing heads as well as apexed caps to enhance drainage.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch regarding any wooden signage, no matter how big or small the project.
