My Father In Law,
Hi, I’m Frank, but you can call me Pops!
I've always loved working with wood. I honed my skills by working alongside my Dad and my Father in Law. In 2014, I decided to make a new family name sign for my home. I picked up one of my routers, inventoried my bits, found a nice piece of wood.....and set about designing and making the new sign for our home (pictured above).
I was hooked! I have spent countless hours researching and learning new techniques of designing and carving signs. The more I learned, the more I became intrigued with this artwork. It didn't take long for this hobby to become my passion. And turn that passion into my business!
I recently traveled to Golden Valley, Arizona, to attend a 2-day hands-on sign carving seminar with my mentors, who are world-renowned carving experts. At the seminar, I learned some of the latest techniques for carving wood signs with a handheld wood router. I also learned new methods for completing projects using different finishing products and techniques.
Why Pops Custom Signs?
My signs aren't "county fair" quality signs. Each sign is hand-carved, hand-painted, and sealed with either a marine grade varnish or polyurethane to help protect the finish. This means I do not use a computer to do the carving. Each sign is unique and one of a kind.
I also offer handmade Cutting Boards and Cedar Chests that will become family heirlooms, as well as other specialty items. I can even try to repair your broken items. Bring your wants and wishes to me. Let's see if I can fulfill your hopes and dreams.
I want my customers to be satisfied with their purchase. Inspect your purchase upon receipt. If I failed to satisfy you, please contact me immediately for instructions on returning the item. Upon inspection of the returned item, I will contact you. Together, we will discuss the issue and try to find a resolution.
It's important to note that even with several coats of finish applied, the weather will affect the finish and the sign will eventually need to be repaired.
