Old Time Wood Signs

Old Time Wood Signs is a family operated cottage industry, which began in 1986 in the heart of the Piney Woods of East Texas. Our primary product has been beautiful hand carved redwood signs and plaques. We have chosen to use redwood for its beauty and durability. The natural oils present in redwood give it a superior decay resistant quality, which means your redwood sign will last for decades with only minimal maintenance.

I thank from the bottom of my heart for your precious time spent and help. I will always be grateful to you for such goodness.

The tight smooth grain structure of redwood makes it an excellent choice for achieving the crisp, clean-cut edges required for an attractive carved sign.

In addition to redwood, we do make signs in cedar. The cedar signs tend to be more limiting than the redwood due to the difference in grains as well as the presence of knots.

Each order is designed by hand in order to achieve the most visually pleasing signs. Consideration is given to the wording, lettering style, size of sign, edge design and additional desired artwork. Once the basic layout has been drawn on the redwood blank, the sign is hand carved using a power router to cut away the lettering and designs. The carved areas are then painted with black paint. The entire sign is then sanded and a clear exterior finish is applied. Though not required, the application of an additional coat of exterior finish on an annual basis will keep your sign looking new indefinitely.

We also do larger, commercial size signs by either carving or sand blasting.

We spend a great deal of time concentrating on details in our design studio and working with power tools in the woodshop. Consequently, we may not always be available to answer your phone calls personally. We also travel and do shows so there are times when we are often out of touch for several days. However, your phone messages and email are important to us and we will answer them in a timely manner.

Old Time Wood Signs has a storefront in Edom, Texas, sharing space with KC Studios. Usual hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Catch us there to place a sign order or call for an appointment. We previously set up at First Monday Trade Days in Canton, Texas. We were located in The Original Pavilion 2 on Highway 19. First Monday takes place the weekend before the first Monday of the month on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We set up there for 15 years.
