Hand-carving is now part of our repertoire. We use chisels to incise letters in native
cypress, then gild the letters.
Some of the solid wood signs are painted, while others are simply sealed to preserve the beauty of the natural wood grain.
We also do relief carving, which is expecially effective for illustration and ornament.
