A large solid oak wall plaque, custom designed, with all the details of a special event, such as a wedding, engraved upon it
A unique and beautiful gift - the one you see here was created as an anniversary gift, and shows the complete Order of Service from the couple's wedding.
Ideal to commemorate a special wedding anniversary - eg the fifth (wood!), 10th, 25th (silver) or 50th (golden) anniversaries. This would also make a unique and quirky retirement gift, an original award, or just a lovely memento of a fondly-remembered time.
Once you order, you can send us your wording in a message. You provide the names, dates, places, and so on... anything you like. We lay it out, design it, send you a proof by email, and then cut and carve the finished design using our high-precision computer-controlled cutting tools.
The board is around 1 inch thick and is engraved with razor-sharp cutting tools to give great 3D definition and shadow gaps - these are what make the plaques readable from a distance.
This product qualifies for our Design Service: we will send you an image of the proposed layout once we receive your order, and we will make adjustments if you want something changed. We have a variety of fonts and styles to create the perfect personalised engraving. Simple images you supply can sometimes be used as well if they suit engraving - please ask.
Whenever possible, we source our wood from industrial offcuts, excess stocks and reclaim sources in the UK. All solid timber can change as it ages, and you should protect your product from constant changes in temperature and humidity.
We apply a simple oil finish, which gives a very pleasant smooth matt sheen to the wood, and no lacquers or varnishes to flake off over time. The wood can be cleaned with a damp cloth, and recoated with oil should it be needed (recommended once or twice a year) to maintain the finish. Please note that the colour and figuring of wood varies quite a lot, and even similar pieces can develop differently during oiling. The images should therefore be used as a guide only: the finish you recieve may be a little lighter or darker.
