 olivero design wood sign - walden pond

The next step in this sign project was to use the same post units as in the previous wood sign. We cleaned and painted them. After that the new sign panels were ready to install. 

Unlike the wood sign we replaced these new signs are made from HDU sign board. This gives us the look of wood while increasing the durability of the sign board. And 

as you can see at closer range, the background to the marsh scene is sandblasted which shows the texture of the HDU board. The lettering for the name is incised into the sign board. This carving is done by hand which traditional carving tools. 


In the next post I will show what we did with the lower portion of the sign units. The homeowner's association wanted to add the look of stone. You will see how we added a skirt of faux stone around the base of the sign unit.
