Yeti & mountain cabin name sign with lots of options to personalize
With a variety of colour combinations this rustic cabin name sign is carved from one solid piece of wood (options available, one of which is live edge fir) and can be made with a live edge and/or distressed look for some real character ... every sign is unique.
This piece of live edge Douglas fir (which ended up as a bar counter) shows the edge both before & after the bark is removed. The bark is stripped as ultimately it will likely fall off eventually any way.
As long as your sign falls within the sizes given and we have suitable symbols / images readily available then you can modify the look to something completely different ... it could be a fly fisherman and a giant fish, a bunch of deer and some trees, a baby bear & mummy bear ... you get the idea. Also the text can say pretty much anything as long as it fits on the sign without looking too busy.
To construct one of the 18" x 48" signs we would laminate narrower boards together, similar to this example (just not quite as big as that sign was 60" x 72").
If you look closely you may see plugs in the side ... this hides two 10" long GRK screws that prevent the side braces from separating. The perpendicular side braces are there to prevent the rest of the sign separating. What you can't see is that each section is laminated using beach mortis and tennon joints ... there's more involved than just shoving some bits of wood together.
All our products are made from solid wood with the exception of birch or other varieties of plywood which are an option on some specific items.
Wood by it's very nature (being an all natural material) has ut's character traits ... some species more than others. Pine, fir and to a lesser excent cedar all have knots and significant colour variation is possible. Maple is more pedictable with very few knots. Birch plywood is much like maple but a more affordable option, however carving plywood reveals the core layers which can be of a different shade.
Shipping & Returns
Shipping & Returns
We will start to make your sign AFTER any personalization has been approved via email [we send you a computer rendering within 48hrs of receiving your order]. It then takes 3-5 days once you have given approval via email reply to carve, finish, pack & ship.
NOTE: We are not responsible for delays caused by customs or other carrier-related delays out of our control. When your order ships you will get a calculated ESTIMATED time of arrival based on the carrier's own standards, but this is not a guaranteed arrival date.
We only ship with trackable methods such as Canada Post Expedited Parcel, etc. Contact us within 14 days of receipt with any damage or other product concerns. For returns we need to receive the product back within 30 days of you receiving it and it must be in new condition (unless of course it arrived damaged).
We actually make our products using mm but we will quote sizes in both mm & the closest inch dimensions. It's just way more precise to use mm in the workshop.
We use exterior grade paints but only the fir (or cedar) sign products have an exterior clear coat on them. As long as you avoid spilling anything on the wood or wipe off immediately then there should be minimal maintenance required ... wipe down with a damp cloth. As with any wood product try to avoid excessive temperature fluctuations as the wood can distort. Some amount of fading is to be expected with any painted wood product exposed to the sun & elements over time ... much in the same way that the siding on a house or your car will fade in the sun eventually.
Are you in to the "weathered" look?
This one is perfect for that fun piece at the cabin and we have both a skier and snowboarder version.
Perhaps you'd like the aged look if the skiers at your cabin are a bit "weathered" themselves with a few laps of the bumps under their belt.
For the vast majority of products shipping is included for customers in Canada or USA (lower 49). Shipping charges apply for other international destinations.
We realize many websites will mention "Free shipping" but I think we all know it has been factored in to the price rather than actually being "free". Call me old fashioned but I believe in being honest about this sort of stuff.
If your order arrives damaged then we will send a replacement provided you notify us within 14 days of receipt. Please note that the natural character traits of wood are not considered damage ... these are wood signs after all. We suggest the maple option if you prefer less in terms of "character".
Any non-personalized products can be returned within 30 days for a refund, however you will need to pay for shipping if for any reason other than damage or wrong product and they must arrive back in the original condition.
