The owner of Monarch Philadelphia approached us to build an outdoor sign for their outdoor lounge: Garden Cafe & Bar. He had just two requests: match their existing pallet wall, but with more class and to build a quality sign that will last. We gladly accepted.
We built a custom reclaimed wood exterior sign with an exterior grade cedar frame and reclaimed redwood barn wood face.
Side note: We always enjoy the stories of the wood that our supplier gives us - this particular order of redwood was pulled off of the side of an old barn in southern Kentucky. It was a barn that has been in place for over 200 years, and had been abandoned many many years ago.
We built the sign with cedar and redwood as these woods possess outstanding exterior characteristics: the natural oils repel both water and insects without additional sealants or additives.
We mounted the sign by fabricating custom mounts from 1" black pipe. This gives the sign a strong foundation while still keeping the industrial feel.
And lastly, the logo was laser cut from 1/4" white cast acrylic and mounted via 3/4" studs drilled into the face of the sign.
This sign will last a long time, and the customer was so happy, they asked us to create more signs for the inside of their restaurant.
If you're looking for a custom reclaimed wood sign, we're your guys (and girls). We can build any type of wood sign with 100% quality craftsmanship.
