Old Dog Signwriters is the area where the challenge of creating a special type of sign, unique to the trade, exists. Antique signs are hard to find. I create "antiqued" signs using the same age old techniques as the old masters used. No computer technology is used. Completely hand crafted, the art of Gilding with 23 karat Gold Leaf, hand carving, hand lettering, Glue Chipped glass and other methods of "ages past" are used in the construction of these signs. These are "one of a kind" pieces. If you want something special, send me your request!
The Gift Shop at the Glenn Curtiss Museum needed two new signs. I wanted them to look old, so this is what I came up with. I donated them to the museum, which has the greatest group of volunteers you could ever assemble in one place. You should plan a visit! It is located in Hammondsport, NY. The Restoration shop at the Glenn Curtiss Museum needed a new sign. I wanted to match the Gift Shop sign look. This antique looking sign is crafted from a mahogany base, hand carved lettering and gilded with 23 karat gold leaf. Sign is "antiqued" to look a hundred years old. The pistol is hand carved from a piece of High Density Urethane and painted to look authentic. These signs were made for Northern Exposure Antiques in Atlanta, GA. They are roughly 36"x24" and are made of plywood. They are all hand painted. This sign was made from a piece of plywood. It is painted to look 100 years old..........it worked! A reproduction of a one of a kind Watkins Glen International sign from the '60s.I have the original in my "Museum". An old looking propeller sign. The prop was carved from redwood, then "antiqued". Boards are around 100 years old, taken from an old barn. Mike Wood, of Watkins Glen, NY, wanted a sign for his daughter's new horse barn. I came up with this "antiqued" mahogany sign.

The rifle is carved from a piece of High Density Urethane. it is painted to look authentic. Dr. Robert Berry of Advanced Family Chiropractic in Montour Falls, NY, had this sign made for his Lakehouse. It measures 2' x 2' and is constructed of Mahogany. Gilding is 23 karat Gold Leaf. This hand carved Mahogany sign rests in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains! I carved for my friend, Diane Schuler. She lives in Bradford, PA. It was a gift for her new "horse barn".
