Cattail Address Sign

1024 768 Thuja Wood Art - Reclaimed Cedar Furniture Wood Art Vancouver Victoria Gulf Islands British Columbia

Another address sign I made recently… This sign borrows the rustic torii gate style to get its main shape.  It is made all from salvaged red cedar driftwood that I split by hand.  This gives it that nice texture that you see in split roof shakes.  The joints are all mortise and tenon with wood pegs.  This sign features a simple cattail design that nicely fills the available space and blends in with the surrounding vegetation.   The lettering and graphic is carved into the cedar, then painted with high quality sign paint.  This sign is also mounted using rebar hammered into holes in each post.  In this installation I drilled holes in two flat rocks and pushed the rebar through the stone and into the ground to hold it up steady, and keep the wood off the ground.
