A lovely gift for Daddy's special place. These engraved signs are made from slate for Daddy's Shed, Garden Daddys Garage or Daddy's special place.
They make great presents for Fathers and great presents for children to give to their special Daddy on Christmas Day, for birthdays or to celebrate his new secret place.
Your sign will be made from slate, much of which is salvaged from building projects in the villages near my home in Crich, Derbyshire. It is finished with a galvanised steel rope which won't rust or rot. Being flexible, the steel rope is also easier for you to hang than solid wire hangers.
Choose the options from the drop down boxes. I make slate signs for Daddy’s allotment, BBQ, garden, greenhouse, potting shed and shed. There’s even one for Daddy’s workshop and Daddy’s garage.
Every piece of slate has different textures and tones, making each sign beautifully unique. I cut the slate by hand, treat it with Danish oil then engrave through the finish, leaving the engraved area in its natural state. As it is engraved, the text won't peel and the sign will last for years outside.
Made from slate with a galvanised steel rope wire hanger.
Each piece of slate is different in texture and may contain small pieces of pyrite (Fool's Gold) which is a naturally occurring mineral in the slate. We only engrave pieces of slate we would be happy to receive ourselves. Being a natural product, no two pieces are the same, making each one truly unique.
The size of my engraved slate signs excluding the hanger is usually around 24 -25cm wide x 10cm deep.
