Chinese Signage

Reproduction Chinese Shop Front Sign in Burred Oak

Using a slab of Welsh oak from a woodworm farm, some careful island cutting, then painting, this replica Chinese Sign has now guided the makers of a full set of signs in use on a new shop frontage.

Designed and constructed here at HoBB Real, this design model made use of sound wood that whilst riddled with both woodworm and death watch beetle attack, provided the antiqued look required. The sheet was bonded to a new backing board after cutting the letterform then treated with a preservative to halt further infestation. After drying fully, this sample was bees waxed but those on the shop front will have a coating of resin.

In case you are wondering, the Chinese Characters used are for Water, Fire, Earth, Stone and Metal as these elements guide the work of our good friends David and Rose.

I've reclaimed willow wood with wet rot, turned tree stumps into fern planters but this is the first time that I've been so close to the devastation caused by insect larvae attack. Some of the eating patterns even looked like computer circuit boards!
