Crafty Carving create truly bespoke and unique carvings, we have many customers emailing us with their ideas for signs or personalised gifts they want created and carved into oak.
Initially we ask the customer to send us a rough sketch outlining basic information such as, size, an idea of font, a clipping of a lined illustration they perhaps have seen, and they would like incorporated in some way. We can then create a piece of artwork and in turn give an indication of cost from this. Generally, the more detail, the longer it takes to carve, the higher the cost etc.
As a guide an oak carving, for a house sign measuring 300mm x 110mm x 30mm with mountings of your choice would be in the region of £85
Corner and Mounting Detailing
Brass cup insets are a nice touch rather than just a plain hole.
The illustration shows the brass cup with a flat head brass screw.
Dome headed brass screws can give a little more interest to the mount.
Mounting plates can be fixed to the rear of the carving for an alternative to drilling through.
