These premium free-standing house signs feature a rustic natural edge.

This is our luxurious handmade heavy-duty wooden house sign with a live edge, which means the natural waney edge of the tree. The natural edge is a beautiful feature of these solid oak house signs, that runs the full length of the sign plaque, giving the signs a stunning organic and rustic feel.

These live edge oak house signs are created from hand-selected Superior Grade English Oak and made to considerable thickness. We spare no expense when it comes to these beautiful wooden signs. If you want something that is of superior quality, made with exceptional attention to detail, to a truly stunning flawless finish, you will not be disappointed. These really are the finest and mightiest wooden house signs available on the market. All our standing house signs come already assembled, using traditional joinery techniques, making them extremely hardwearing. There is nothing to do to the sign except getting it in the ground.

Sign sizes:

We offer 2 sizes, small and large, giving you the flexibility of having your house name on 1 or over 2 lines if required. Either size sign can then be fitted with 1 or 2 solid oak posts which allow you to customise your sign to suit your requirements. Please see below for the sign dimensions:

The sign plaque itself is made from 3.5cm thick solid oak and mounted on huge 8cm thick x 1.2 metres long posts, so there is plenty of timber to bury into the ground and to keep them very sturdy once in place.

The length of the sign plaques will vary due to the amount of lettering that is required. Anywhere between 50cm and 1 metre depending on how many characters there are. We will always allow plenty of room either side of your lettering to give your house sign a well-proportioned look. You also have the option of making the first letter of your engraved lettering larger than the rest of the characters if you wish. Please see our images.

Engraving and Colour Options:

All prices given will include engraving. You can then choose to leave the lettering plain or have it paint filled. We offer White, Black and Grey. The paint application we supply is three coats of water-resistant acrylic paint, giving plenty of protection for the years to come.

Additional carvings such as carved arrows can be added by request. Please contact us for these.


As with everything we do here at Make Me Something Special, we have spent the time researching and sourcing the perfect materials available. Each engraved oak sign is handmade from one piece of Air Dried Superior Grade English Oak. This Timber is perfectly seasoned and adjusted for outdoor conditions. You can choose to leave your sign untreated, finished in Superior Danish Oil or our low maintenance Diamond Coating finish. If you choose untreated your product will weather to a pale silver more quickly. Danish Oil will not only treat the timber but also bring out the timbers natural colour. This has a UV filter to protect the timber but it does require regular upkeep. 2 – 4 times a year to keep it looking its best. Diamond Coating is more glossy but a lot more harder wearing and only requires a top up once a year, however this depend on the weather and where the product is placed. We would recommend twice a year if you want full protection. Top up kits can be ordered over the phone or on our website – see here. 

Assembled or Unassembled:

You can choose to have your free standing house sign fully assembled ready to place or flat packed. Fitting the sign to the post is a very simple process requiring only a couple of bolts. Choosing your Sign unassembled means you will also save on postage as the parcel is far less bulky.

Placing your Sign:

When it come to place your sign, we recommend you place 30 – 50cm into the ground and fill with concrete for stability and security reasons.
