About Wood

      This resource is to better help you understand the woods (and materials which substitute wood) use in my carvings, signs, and other wood projects.  I will be developing this page as time permits, I will also be adding other resources which can be located on the Web.
      I will start with those woods which are used in both my signs and carvings.  Not all the woods which I use in my woodcarvings would I use for signs and as this page develops you should have a better understanding.
      The below menu will give you a break down as to what to expect as I work on this page.

  • Woods for Signs

  • Woods for Woodcarvings & Sculpture

  • Woods for Doors

  • Woods for Furniture

Woods for Signs

      The woods & other materials which I use for my signs are all rated for exterior use and are used on both my indoor and outdoor signs (I also use a polyurethane, medium density foam on all my sandblasted signs.  This material). The wood is listed alphabetically and not in order of preference.
