Hand Carved Tavern Sign 

by James Stewart

These signs are made of Black Walnut and are double sided. The cross members on each side with attached square nails. The third sign has three lines of hand carved text with dental molding by the broken pediment. There is a raised oval in the middle with the Shaker 'Tree of Life' carved into it. The finish is a hand rubbed tung-oil. The sign also has colonial posts on each side that are bronzed to give it the true colonial feeling.

The pictures reflect Standard Tavern sign Tree of Life carved in (left) - Raised Pineapple (middle) - Raised Oval (right)

This sign was created in 1999 - It has a carved in pineapple and hangs proudly at the Waldron's home in New Jersey

The Signs above are depicting some of the various other signs created by James for his customers.

Woods Unlimited by James Stewart has a new creation. After many years of studying signs through out New England and Colonial Virginia, James Stewart has come up with an old style tavern sign that can depict a Welcome and a pineapple (hospitality symbol in Colonial times). Note other symbols maybe substituted for the pineapple (lion, cow, horse, etc.). A family name can be hand carved in the tavern board to make it a family treasured item for years to come.

The Tavern signs are made of solid Butternut, Cherry, Black Walnut, Oak, Teak or Mahogany. The letters are bronzed and the pineapple top is painted green. The cross members are attached with square nails to give it the feel of an authentic colonial style sign. The signs are available in three different sizes (24 x 36 or 18 x 26 or 13.5 x 18). Note - The smallest, would only have an image carved on it. Custom sizes can be made.
