House Signs made using Idigbo Wood

idigbo tree

Idigbo is an excellent choice of material to use when creating a house sign as it looks professional as well as being robust and easy to maintain.

This type of timber works very well and inscribes easier than other wood types when using hand carving machines, giving the sign a clean finish.

Idigbo is commonly known for its strength and its fixture properties, where it can easily hold nails and screws into place holding the timber in place continuously for years to come.

Crafting a house sign from Idigbo is becoming more and more popular due to its exquisite look and the fact that it is very similar to English oak.
