Rocky Knob Woodcrafts Indoor Sign Material Information

About Our Indoor Signs:

We offer two varieties of indoor signs, natural wood and painted MDF.

The standard natural wood options that we offer are Mahogany, Oak and Pine.

We have two options for natural wood signs, cuts painted black and finished with spar urethane and, what we like to call cut and ship for those people who want to finish it themselves, the cuts will be unpainted and no finish will be be applied.

There are many flavors of Mahogany; the lumber, in the Mahogany family, that we use is called Sapele. Sapele contains an interlocking grain that produces light and dark ribbon stripes throughout the boards. Because of this tight grain, much finer detail can be carved into it without the fear of chipping. We offer this as an indoor sign but it will survive very well outside.

Oak is a very popular blond wood with a straight grain and a coarse texture. It is relatively hard but machines (carves) well. The grain isn't as tight as Mahogany so when carving smaller text (under 0.75") the insides of "e", a", "o" and the like may chip out.

Pine is a soft, blond wood, which carves very cleanly medium (1.25") and larger size text. Pine can also have knots, which can add character to your sign.

Other natural wood options
Because of all of the special projects we do, we often have leftovers of many types of wood. Other lumber we may have on hand are: Willow, Walnut, Poplar, Maple, Cherry, Zebra Wood, Cocobolo, Myrtle Wood and Purple Heart. If you are interested in something a little different, contact us to see what we have and get a price quote.

Painted MDF
MDF stands for medium-density fiberboard; it is a common material that is used in a number of indoor items such as cabinets, shelves, tables, and desks. We paint the MDF surface the color of your choice (black, blue, burgundy, cream, or green) then carve your sign. The cuts are the color of the material. The two edge options we offer are primitive and plain. With the plain edge we do nothing, with the primitive, we use a sander to remove the paint around the edge. The two things this accomplishes is, it frames your sign, and it hides any imperfections that are caused if the sign gets dropped. Probably 98% of the painted MDF signs we sell are shipped with primitive option option.

How To Hang
All of our signs have keyholes cut in the back so they hang flush against a wall, but for an additional $5.00 we will attach a decorative chain
